What You’ll Need
Making a quick and easy tiramisu may seem daunting, but with the right ingredients it can be achieved in just 15 minutes or less. To make a delicious tiramisu, you’ll need:
• 2 cups heavy cream
• 1 cup mascarpone cheese

With these simple ingredients, you can make a classic tiramisu in no time! Make sure to have all of your ingredients prepped and ready before you begin. In a bowl, whip together the heavy cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. In another bowl, combine the mascarpone cheese, espresso, and amaretto until well blended. Take about one-third of the whipped cream mixture and fold it into the mascarpone mixture until completely combined. Take the remaining whipped cream mixture and gently fold it into the mascarpone mixture until combined. Using a 9×13 inch pan, line the bottom with half of the ladyfingers. Sprinkle them lightly with some of the espresso and then spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the top. Layer on the remaining ladyfingers, again sprinkling them with some of the espresso, then spread over the remaining mascarpone mixture. Cover and chill the tiramisu in the refrigerator for at least two hours. Before serving, sprinkle lightly with cocoa powder and optionally, some chocolate shavings. Cut into pieces and enjoy this quick & easy tiramisu that’s perfect for any occasion!
The Quick & Easy Method
Making a delicious Tiramisu doesn’t need to take all day! Here’s a simple method to make it in 15 minutes or less.
To begin, beat two large eggs in a bowl and add 3/4 cup of granulated sugar to the mix. Beat this mixture until it forms stiff peaks, then set aside.
Next, whip 2 cups of heavy cream until soft peaks form. Gradually add the egg mixture to the cream and stir to combine.
In a separate bowl, mix 1 cup of strong coffee with 1/4 cup of your favorite liqueur. Dip ladyfingers into the coffee mixture one at a time and place them on the bottom of an 8-inch pan. Spread half of the egg and cream mixture over the ladyfingers.
Sprinkle 1/2 cup of cocoa powder over the cream layer and spread the remaining cream over it. Finish off the Tiramisu by sprinkling more cocoa powder on top. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
And that’s it! You now have a delicious and quick Tiramisu to enjoy. Bon Appétit! If you would like to kick things up a notch, try adding layers of seasonal fruit between the layers of Tiramisu. Strawberries, blueberries and raspberries are excellent additions. If you would prefer a sweeter dessert, you can substitute half of the strong coffee with condensed milk or even custard. Don’t forget to garnish each slice with chocolate shavings and whipped cream for an extra special touch.
You can also experiment with different flavors such as almond extract or peppermint extract for a unique twist. To really impress your guests, try making individual servings of Tiramisu in glasses instead of using an 8-inch pan. Layer crushed cookies on the bottom and alternate between layers of creamy filling and flavored coffee. Serve each individual portion with a dollop of whipped cream and chopped nuts on top. No matter how you prepare it, you can always expect ooh’s and ah’s from your guests when they get a taste of homemade Tiramisu!
