Tiramisu in a Glass (Eggless Recipe)

This is a great way to use up the odd ingredients from making tiramisu layered cake. Besides serving in a martini glass, you can also serve this in a ramekin.

Traditionally, tiramisu contains raw eggs in the batter and this recipe went without them, hence “eggless”. For those who are allergic to eggs, substitute ladyfingers biscuits (savoiardi) with eggless sponge cake, as ladyfinger biscuits contain eggs.


  • 200g (24) Italian ladyfingers biscuits (savoiardi) [NOTE: substitute with eggless sponge cake, if allergic to eggs]
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder

(A) Cream mixture

  • 250 grams mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp kahlua
  • 2 tbsp thickened cream (or whipping cream; whipped until stiff peaks appear)

(B) Coffee solution for dipping ladyfingers biscuits

  • 4 tbsp espresso coffee (you can also use brewed instant coffee or canned coffee)
  • 2 tbsp of coffee liquor such as kahlua

(C) Garnishing

  • any berries (I’m using strawberries here)

Additional Tool

  • fine sieve (for dusting cocoa powder)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix (A) except cream with a spatula until well combined. Then fold in the cream until the mixture is of a creamy consistency.
  2. Add (B) in a wide and shallow dish. Dip one lady fingers biscuit (halfway lengthwise) in the coffee solution. Snap the biscuit into two and arrange inside a martini glass. Arrange about 3-4 snapped biscuits in each glass. Then add some cream mixture you prepared in step 1 over the biscuits. Chill the glass in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
  3. When it is ready to be served, dust cocoa powder over using a fine sieve and garnish with fresh berries.
