Strawberry Tiramisu (without raw eggs)

strawberry tiramisu

Strawberry Tiramisu is a twist on the famous classic dessert which contains raw eggs and coffee, this one has neither. It’s a variation where strawberries, creamy mascarpone and whipped cream reign supreme and it’s absolutely delicious!

This dessert is perfect for Valentines Day which is right around the corner, a romantic date night with your special someone, or it can be doubled up and made for your next party.

It’s an easy to assemble, no-bake dessert which can and should be made the day before so all the flavors can meld together in pure harmony.

Seek out the freshest and juiciest strawberries you can find, I always buy extra just in case I don’t like the way some look after I bring them home, ripeness is key to the over all flavor in this strawberry tiramisu.

You’ll also need some heavy whipping cream, magical mascarpone cheese and Savoiardi lady fingers which are the crunchy kind not the soft ones.

For best results stick with an 8×8 or 9×9 inch serving dish or something similar so you’ll have enough ingredients to make 2 layers, of course if you want to double the recipe go with a larger vessel.

The first layer is the lady fingers that have been soaked in strawberry juice, not quickly dipped but soaked well enough before they fall apart, this will give you the moisture that is needed for the cake.

Next you’ll spread the cream mixture all over the lady fingers and on top of that sliced strawberries scattered all over the top, then you’ll repeat everything one more time.

As I said before this dessert tastes best made the day before which makes it easy on the host because dessert will be done in advance, all you have to do is pull it out of the fridge and put the coffee on.

Feel free to add in some liqueur like Kirsch, Framboise to your pureed strawberry juice for an adult version, I had some raspberry liqueur that I used in mine, but if you’re making it kid friendly it’s just as good without.

I hope you make this easy and luxurious dessert for your next party or date night in.

Ingredients
  • 3lbs. fresh, ripe strawberries ( you're going to have extra for sure) 2 full cups will be chopped and pureed in a food processor, some will be sliced for layers and a few whole for optional decorating of the top
  • Savoiardi lady fingers, the crunchy kind, 24 in a package, you'll probably only use one pack but again I always buy an extra package just in case
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 8 oz. mascarpone cream, room temperature
  • ¼ cup to ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 or 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons liqueur like raspberry, Kirsch or Framboise (optional)
  • ½ cup water
  • mint leaves for optional garnish
Instructions
  1. You'll need a 9x9 inch serving dish or something similar and it should be deep enough to hold two layers. Optional bowl might be a smaller trifle dish.
  2. TO MAKE STRAWBERRY JUICE FOR DIPPING LADY FINGERS
  3. Place 2 full cups of chopped strawberries into a food processor with ½ cup of water and puree until nice and smooth, taste and see if you think it's sweet enough, if not add a tablespoon or 2 of granulated sugar, at this time you can add in the option of a liqueur if you want, taste again adding the amount to your liking. Pour dipping mixture into a small deep dish wide enough so lady fingers can fit while soaking.
  4. TO MAKE THE CREAM MIXTURE
  5. In a bowl add the 8 oz. of mascarpone cheese and with a hand mixer beat until it smooths out.
  6. In same bowl add the 2 cups of heavy cream, the vanilla and the ¼ cup of powdered sugar, blend and beat until it thickens up like a firm whipped cream.
  7. SLICED STRAWBERRIES
  8. Thinly slice up enough strawberries to top the cream mixture on each layer all around
  9. READY FOR ASSEMBLY
  10. One by one soak lady fingers in the strawberry puree, turning and coating each side thoroughly not just a quick dip.
  11. Place single layer on the whole bottom of your serving dish.
  12. Now spread about half of the cream mixture on top of the strawberry soaked ladyfingers making sure all is covered.
  13. Place the thinly sliced strawberries all around the cream mixture.
  14. Repeat next layer with the soaked lady fingers followed by the cream mixture spread all over and then with the sliced strawberries scattered all around.
  15. You can be creative how you want to decorate the top maybe even using some whole strawberries.
  16. Wrap serving dish in plastic wrap and stick it in the fridge overnight for optimal results.
  17. Cut squares or scoop out when ready to serve.
  18. Enjoy!

  1. This Strawberry Tiramisu looks fantastic! I’m put off by the raw eggs in regular tiramisu so this is perfect. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Marie, this is absolutely brilliant! So simple yet I imagine it is absolutely delicious and a terrific make ahead dish for a crowd. The recipe could be cut and served in fancy glasses to present individual portions as well.
