Simple & Easy Tiramisu Recipe

Looking for a simple and easy to make dessert that requires a little ingredients? Why not try this simple Tiramisu Recipe below! 🙂 Next time, I will teach you how to make the authentic version.


  • 250 grams mascarpone
  • 150 grams heavy cream
  • ¼ cup fine sugar
  • about 25 pieces ladyfingers (savoiardi biscuits in Italian)
  • 1 ¼ cup of strong and very good espresso, room temperature
  • unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting


  1. Prepare your espresso in advance and allow to cool or under room temperature.
  2. Whip the mascarpone until fluffy then add 3 tablespoons of heavy cream to lighten it a bit. Continue whipping until thoroughly mixed. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, whip the remaining heavy cream and sugar until it thickens like icing consistency. Set aside.
  4. Dip the ladyfingers to the espresso for 3 seconds and make sure to turn it around to have an even coating of the coffee. Arrange neatly in a serving plate or to your desired dish.
  5. Pipe in or spread in the mascarpone and heavy cream mixture then repeat the layering of ladyfingers. Allow to set first in the fridge for at least 4 hours or better overnight to allow the flavor to fully develop. Dust with cocoa powder before serving. Enjoy! 🙂

  • No espresso machine? No problem! You can use instant coffee by dissolving 3 tablespoons of good instant coffee to 1 1/4 cups of hot water. Let it cool first.
  • If you cannot find heavy cream in your area, you can use all-purpose cream instead. Make sure though that it is cold before using.
  • In case you are curious, I was using coconut sugar just to add a little nutty taste to the cream mixture.
  • For those living in the Philippines, use broas or even sponge cake cut in strips if you cannot find any ladyfingers 🙂
  • On my video, I used total of 15 ladyfingers only but I still have some more mascarpone-cream mixture left that would be enough to extend your line of ladyfingers to make it up to 7 per layer if following my style based on the video. Feel free to follow your own style and use whatever is most convenient for you.
  • Just a hint, it is best eaten after resting overnight in the fridge 🙂
