Easy Tiramisu. Oh boy! This is a wonderful dessert, easy to make and great for parties, family gatherings, for example, over Thanksgiving, or to take to potlucks, BBQ's or to make for a weekend family dessert.

This is a good recipe if you need to make ahead, for example, you can make this easy tiramisu the day before and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

You will notice this recipe has alcohol in it, so it isn't kid friendly. However, if you wanted to make it alcohol-free, you could skip the alcohol entirely or substitute it for something like a kahlua flavored syrup.

We've also got an egg free Tiramisu recipe here for those who can't eat eggs. This recipe contains egg yolks, which are gently cooked over a broiler, so you don't need to worry as this easy tiramisu does not contain raw eggs, unlike many of the traditional tiramisu recipes.

This delicious recipe has been generously shared by our Lovefoodies friend Sally.
Sally tells me her easy tiramisu is a family favourite and she's adapted the recipe over the years as her children have grown to suit their taste.
As with many Tiramisu recipes, it does take a little time, but the results are well worth it!
Thanks very much Sally for sharing.

    1. Hi! I would suggest you use double or whipping cream and whip up until stiff peaks then fold into the mixture. You can also add a couple of teaspoons of icing sugar to sweeten if you wish.
