Eggless Tiramisu

Eggless Tiramisu Recipe

Check Out: Chocolate Lava Cake Recipe

This recipe is courtesy of my buddy Anemone who came over my place and taught me how to make tiramisu, a popular Italian dessert. Tiramisu literally meant “pick me up” thanks to the ingredients coffee, liquor and sugar. She had a lot of experience making tiramisu and she do not even need to refer to a recipe during the making. So I took advantage of her expertise and let her do most of the work while I’m just snapped some photos hehe. For convenience, we made the tiramisu directly in two 13x13cm square Lock&Lock containers so that we can lid and chill it right away.  Both of us prefer the eggless version because we are not entirely comfortable with eating raw eggs and without eggs, it will also keep longer in the fridge. If you have a bit of leftover cream and ingredients from making the layered cake, serve the tiramisu in a glass (or ramekin) recipe which uses the same base tiramisu recipe.

    How long does it take to bake the eggless tiramisu?

    LOL…..”Eggless” – TOTALLY MISLEADING. Savoiardo (ladyfingers) CONTAIN EGGS. If someone with egg allergy makes this recipe, he could even die. PLEASE know the facts before posting such recipes. Of course, it is not made with zabaglione (which uses raw eggs) but zabaglione can also be made SAFER by whisking eggs over bain-marie. Just a request !! No hard feelings.

      Like CBelle, I too, pointed out in post number 44 that the recipe was not eggfree when made using Italian ladyfinger biscuits.

      In no way should this recipe be given the misleading title of Eggless Tiramisu when, with the ingredients used, it clearly is not. CBelle is quite right, any unsuspecting person could make this recipe up, serve it as eggless, and give someone a massive allergic reaction as the recipe stands now.

      In my post numbered 44 I offered a suggestion to make the recipe truely eggfree.

        Hey Jeannie, after I read your comment in 2011, I did amend the recipe and added a note before the start of the recipe, to substitute ladyfinger biscuits to eggless sponge cake for those allergic to eggs. I also thanked you in the note, for your suggestion. I have bumped up this paragraph to make it more prominent. Thanks.

    Hi, your tiramisu sure looks tempting =) I wish to give it a shot! But am wondering if you will recommend whipping cream or thickened cream for better taste? I notice that you only use 2 tablespoons of thickened cream. Can the rest of the thickened cream be saved for future use? cuz the bottle itself is usually 200/300 ml?


    • wiffy replied: — July 10th, 2012 @ 4:52 pm

      Personally, I prefer to use thickened cream, to save myself the trouble of whipping it. For cream leftovers, you can do a search for recipes – here are my recipes which use cream:

  5. Ivy — August 16, 2012 @ 11:34 am

    very interested to try this out!!

    but can i know where i can get kahlua in singapore? issit expensive?


    • wiffy replied: — August 16th, 2012 @ 11:54 am

      Hi Ivy, getting it in DFS at the airport will be much, much cheaper than in town. I can’t remember how much I got it for, but it should be less than $30 at DFS. a bottle lasts a long time for me :)


  6. Alex — November 28, 2012 @ 1:54 am

    Kahlua: You can get them from DFS for 1 Litre at the airport upon arrival. Or from Cold Storage but it is expensive there. Since I’ve finished my Kahlua, I’ve started using Brandy for the last 2 years and it tastes just as good. I even experimented with Whisky :-)
    Eggs: If you are afraid of raw eggs, you can double-boil them before usage.
    Thanks for the receipe – I will try it without eggs soon nevertheless.

    looks’ll be perfect for the holidays…i should try this soon


  8. Clar — January 23, 2013 @ 12:42 am

    Do you seriously only use 2 tablespoons of cream? That’s a really measly amt to whip.


    • wiffy replied: — January 23rd, 2013 @ 1:19 pm

      The quantity is correct. and no need to whip if using thickened cream.


  9. Calida — February 22, 2013 @ 3:04 am

    Hi..if im using whipping cream it’s also 2 tbsp?


    • wiffy replied: — March 20th, 2013 @ 3:42 pm

      correct. Sorry for my late reply.


  10. Saeran — March 16, 2013 @ 8:53 pm

    Hi, just tried to make this . However, my mixture A is not as smooth and creamy as in your photo. Wonder where went wrong? Appreciate your advice.


    • wiffy replied: — March 20th, 2013 @ 3:42 pm

      Is your cheese straight from fridge and still hard? Did you use thickened cream? If not, the whipping cream need to be whipped before using.


      • Saeran replied: — March 20th, 2013 @ 6:02 pm

        Yes took and used it off the fridge . I supposed that’s not the way.
        I used thicken cream and whip it still as I wasn’t sure of the instructions then..
