Bring this no-bake tiramisu cake for your next celebration. Tiramisu is a no-bake Italian classic dessert with rich creamy mascarpone cream cheese layered over ladyfinger biscuits dipped in espresso and liquor. These layers of richness are perfect at any time of the year, especially when you want to entertain, because you can make it ahead of time.
In a heavy-bottom saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, egg yolks, vanilla, and salt.
Slowly add the milk while whisking to prevent lumps.
Place the saucepan on medium heat until the pastry cream thickens.
You want the pastry cream to come to a boil so the cornstarch will thicken the mixture.
Cover with the plastic wrap touching the surface of the cream.
Chill for at least four hours or until ready to use.
Combine the coffee, sugar, cocoa powder, and liquor.
Set aside to cool completely.
Whip the cream until almost stiff peaks.
(save one cup whipped cream aside to pipe as a border – optional)
Add the whipped cream, pastry cream (above), mascarpone cheese along with powdered sugar and vanilla – combine well.
Assemble and chill
Dip each finger biscuit briefly in the coffee mixture.
Layer each in the bottom of an 8-inch round ring cake pan set over a cake board.
Dust with cocoa powder.
Layer half the mascarpone cream mixture.
Top with another layer of finger biscuits dipped in the coffee mixture.
Then, top with the remaining mascarpone cream mixture.
Dust liberally with cocoa powder.
Pipe a whipped cream border (optional).
This must be chilled in the fridge overnight or at least 6 to 8 hours to chill completely.
