I love Tiramisu! It is definitely on the list of my favourite desserts (even though it is quite a long list I must admit). It also happens to be one of my hubby’s favourite so I tend to make it as a special treat for him or as a bribe when I want for something to get done lol. 😉 Occassion isn’t important here at all as this Perfect Eggless Tiramisu definitely doesn’t need one!
This particular Tiramisu is based on the recipe I have seen in BBC Good Food Magazine quite a few years back and which I have since modified to my liking. I have made it a bit lighter just to make myself feel a bit better when eating it and also changed the alcohol used from original Marsala to Baileys. Feel free to use any other coffee liqueur or indeed go back to Marsala. I do, however, find Baileys simply perfect here.
The best thing about this dessert is that it can be prepared in advance and it is the best after a good chill in the fridge preferably overnight (although if you are short on time couple of hours will do too)!
The fact that this dessert is eggless wasn’t too intentional and it definitely isn’t authentic, however I do prefer it to the eggy version myself plus it makes it perfect if you are catering for someone who can’t eat eggs.
I don’t know about you but I like biscuits in my Tiramisu really well soaked in coffee. The amount of coffee for well soaked biscuits is 300ml and I never have any left. To make things slightly easier on yourself divide your biscuits and coffee in half and make sure you use 150ml of coffee for each 100g of biscuits. Oh and a word of warning here! Unless you are really strong willed, you will most likely end up with couple of lady fingers biccies (pre-soaked) in your belly which is (of course) allowed (even encouraged) lol. Perks of the cook, they say!
I like to make my tiramisu in one large dish (approx. 24 x 18cm) however you might prefer individual portions. These look best in nice tumbler or perhaps sundae style glasses where you can see all the layers. Most of the time one dish tiramisu is much easier and quicker though, and if you put your mind to it when serving up, you can get great looking, neat squares that will impress. 🙂
If you are after some more desserts with a bit of Wow! factor take a look at my Pancakes (Crepes) with Mascarpone Cream & Cranberry Compote, which are simply irresistible or perhaps Chocolate Brioche Pudding with Raspberries which is a very special take on bread and butter pudding and last but not least this Vanilla Cremem Brulle to impress!
