Classic Tiramisù in a Glass (without eggs)

The reception back home in Switzerland was quite rainy and stormy. Reasons enough for me to indulge in reminiscences of beautiful, warm Italy – and what could be more suitable for this than a nice Italian dessert?

I dolci italiani are simply fantastic and the most famous dolce of all is, of course, the tiramisù (literally “pull me up”).

Here is a version which I adapted according to my liking. It is made without raw eggs and there is and extra chocolatey flavour thanks to the grated dark chocolate. Buon appetito!


Classic Tiramisù in a Glass (without eggs)

The Italian classic dessert served in a glass, which reveals its layers beautifully.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Serves 4


  • 1dl espresso
  • 1,5dl cream
  • 125g mascarpone
  • 4 tbsp. muscovado sugar
  • 12 ladyfingers
  • ¼ of a bar of dark chocolate
  • a bit of cocoa powder (to decorate)


  1. Prepare 4 glasses.
  2. Whisk the cream until stiff, stir in 3 tablespoons of muscovado sugar and the mascarpone.
  3. Add a tablespoon of sugar to the warm espresso. Let it cool down.
  4. If necessary, break the ladyfingers into smaller pieces (such as they fit in the glass). Soak them in espresso and put them into the glasses as the first layer.
  5. Put a layer of the mascarpone crème on top.
  6. Grate dark chocolate on the crème.
  7. Repeat steps 4-6 until the glass is full. Dust the last layer of mascarpone crème with cocoa powder.
  8. Keep the glasses refrigerated until you serve them. Buon appetito!
