Cheaters Easy Tiramisu

Published Friday, 10 September, 2010 by Mechelle Claire

A super fast and easy version!



  • 20 sponge finger (lady fingers)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs (separated)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups mascarpone cheese
  • 2 cups espresso (sweetened to your liking)


1) Separate your eggs and add the yolks into a large bowl (keep the whites in another bowl for later)

2) Add the sugar and whisk until creamy

3) Add the mascarpone cheese into the bowl and mix well, no lumps

4) Set the bowl aside. Into a separate bowl add the egg whites and whisk until they form soft peaks (white and fluffy)

5) Slowly add in the sugar a bit at a time, whisking all the while. Whisk until firm (you should be able to turn your bowl over without the mixture moving)

6) With a spatula, carefully add the egg whites into the other bowl with the egg yolks and sugar from earlier. Carefully fold over the two mixtures, do not mix together vigorously. Keep folding until you get a creamy, smooth mixture

7) Make up the coffee into a bowl and sweeten slightly if wanted

8) Dip your sponge fingers into the coffee, not too much or they will become soggy

9) Lay your sponge fingers into a pyrex dish and top with some of the egg mixture. Sprinkle over some cocoa powder

10) Add another layer of sponge fingers and the rest of the egg mixture. Sprinkle more cocoa powder on top

11) Place the dish into the fridge for 2-3 hours

    Where does the additional sugar come from? You tell us to add it to the egg yolk, and then again to the egg white. It's not specific how much goes in each.
