This tiramisu cake comes with quite a twist on an old favourite.
Tiramisu is a popular rich and creamy Italian dessert flavoured with coffee and liqueur. It’s made of sponge fingers that are dipped into coffee which has been flavoured with liqueur and layered with a delicious, creamy mascarpone mixture.

This tiramisu is made up-side-down and uses cream cheese instead of mascarpone to produce a firmer tiramisu. This allows the cake to be turned out, filled with fresh berries in the centre and sliced.

I have used the Mastrad Silicone Savarin Cake Pan for this gorgeous dessert.

Ingredients (Makes, 1 large tiramisu cake)

  • 1 cup strong black coffee
  • 1/4 cup Kahlua, Tia Maria or Marsala

  • Looks and sounds just amazing, thanks!


  • I wouldn’t make this because of the raw eggs. It’s not healthy to eat raw eggs so why would I want to put them into a dessert to share with family and friends. I prefer my eggs cooked but thanks for sharing the recipe


  • In most traditional tiramisu recipes, you’ll find egg yolks. This is what gives the filling its yellowish color, decadent taste, and thick texture. While some recipes, such as the most classic ones, use raw eggs, it’s always best to cook them due to the risk of salmonella


  • This looks amazing. I ate out recently and tried their Tiramisu and it was amazing. This recipe is mouth-watering.


  • That’s great that this looks so different. I always love seeing different takes on traditional desserts because it makes it look more interesting as you think it’s something new.
