Eggless Tiramisu Cake

Eggless Tiramisu Cake is a popular coffee rich Italian dessert served in a cake form. The eggless vanilla sponge is soaked with coffee syrup and layered and covered with irresistible creamy whipped mascarpone cheese and cream mixture. The cake is dusted with cocoa powder and is refrigerated and served chilled. This indulgent cake is moist, creamy and balanced perfectly with flavors and aroma of coffee and cocoa and is perfect to celebrate any occasion.

Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts. I always had it in the restaurants. Mascarpone cheese is one of the most important ingredient to make a good tiramisu. Back in India when we lived in Bharuch, Mascarpone cheese was not available and hence I had never got the opportunity to make this tempting dessert.

When I came to Sydney, I could find the mascarpone cheese ready available in the supermarkets and hence I was always finding an occasion to make the Tiramisu.

However if mascarpone cheese is not available you can substitute it with cream cheese. The cake will taste a bit of sour or you will need to balance the sourness by adding more sugar to it.

Authentically Tiramisu is made by layering the soaked the lady finger dipped in coffee syrup with mascarpone cheese, sugar and egg mixture. It is then flavored with cocoa powder and chilled and cut and served into pieces. Tiramisu in Italian means “pick me up” or “cheer me up”.

It was my friend’s (Dr Neelam Singh and Dr Puneet Singh) marriage anniversary. I thought this would be a perfect time to surprise and cheer up the lovely couple by making Tiramisu in the form of a cake. I had made some for my friend (Kavita) and my family too.

Puneet’s mother and my mother in law do not eat egg and hence I made the cake eggless and also non alcoholic. (Authentic Tiramisu has rum or coffee liquor in it).

Neelam and Puneet were very happy when I went to wish them at their home with this Eggless and Non alcoholic Tiramisu cake. Kavita was very happy when I gave her cake too.

Neelam messaged me saying the cake was super yummy and Kavita was happy to celebrate the cake with no occasion and her entire family loved the cake .

My mother in law (Geeta Shah) and father in law (Chetan Shah) are coffee lovers. My mother in law enjoyed the cake to the fullest though my father in law did not have it as he wanted to control his blood sugar. But he enjoyed the aroma of coffee from the cake though. My husband (Mithil), son (Aarav) and myself could not stay away from this irresistible dessert.
