The perfect make ahead, no bake dessert which is very rich, delicious and decadent. This recipe of Tiramisu is not only eggless but is non alcoholic too. The luscious, silky, velvety cheese and cream mix sets and gels so perfectly with the coffee infused biscuits. It’s a match made in heaven!!
A very classic Italian dessert ‘Tiramisu’ which literally translates to ‘pick me up’ or ‘cheer me up’. And the moment you see this dessert you instantly want to have it. Tiramisu gets a new flavorful kick in this recipe with the use of lotus biscoffs instead of the traditionally used ladyfinger biscuits.
For making this scrumptious dessert, you actually don’t need truckloads of ingredients. Very few ingredients are used to make this uber looking scrumptious dessert. Making this dessert takes only 35-40 minutes but the hardest part is the waiting part for the tiramisu to set, which takes about 5-6 hours.
It came out very sumptuous. You must make this sinfully delicious dessert. One bite from it will put you in a good cheerful mood!
INGREDIENTS OF LOTUS BISCOFF EGGLESS TIRAMISU
1- LOTUS BISCOFFS (Biscuits) : THE BASE
At the base of this Tiramisu, I have used Lotus biscoffs . Lotus biscoffs have a very distinct flavor.
2- COFFEE SYRUP
Traditionally in Tiramisu the biscuits are dipped in a concoction of water, coffee and liquor.
Since, we are a family of teetotalers, I completely avoided the alcohol part.
Just brew water and coffee together and this syrup will give a perfect flavorful kick.
3- CREAM CHEESE & CREAM MIX
Traditionally a mixture of mascarpone cheese and whipping cream is made for making this creamy layer.
Since, I wanted to experiment with cream cheese hence I have used cream cheese instead of Mascarpone cheese.
Whip the cream with icing sugar till it gets stiff peaks. Fold in the cream cheese gently and your cheesy creamy ‘tiramisu cream’ is ready. It’s light and fluffy and gorgeous and delicious.
You can use mascarpone cheese too instead of Cream cheese.
4- LOTUS BISCOFF SPREAD
The star of this dish is this spread. Such a flavorful and lusciously delicious spread. Taking this tiramisu to next level of deliciousness.
NOTES & SPECIAL TIPS TO MAKE PERFECT TIRAMISU
1- Always use cheese at room temperature. This results in a soft and creamy mix rather than a stiff or lumpy mix.
2- Using of Icing sugar is preferable as it gets incorporated into the cream mix evenly.
3- Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese gently so as to retain the airiness and lightness.
4- Lotus biscoffs are just soaked in the coffee syrup. You have to be quick here. Just dip in the syrup and take them out. Do not leave them in the syrup. Otherwise they will become soggy and mushy.
5- Make sure to evenly layer all the layers.
6- While spreading the cream mix on the biscoff layer be very gentle so as not to break the biscoffs top part.
7- Let the tiramisu set in the fridge for about 5-6 hours. This will result in a very flavorful and well set tiramisu.
LET’S SEE HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE——
Lotus biscuits- 24
Cream cheese- 120 grams
Whipping cream- 250 milliliter
Icing sugar- 1 cup
Lotus Biscoff Spread- 2 tablespoon
Coffee powder- 1 tablespoon
Sugar- 1 teaspoon
Water- 1/2 cup
We will start by making the coffee syrup first.
For that take one cup of water. Warm it.
Add in coffee powder and mix well.
Keep it aside and let it come to room temperature.
Next, take chilled whipping cream along with 2 tablespoons of icing sugar.
Whip this to stiff peaks with the help of whip attachment attached to hand mixer or stand mixer.
In a separate mixing bowl take cream cheese along with half cup of icing sugar.
Give it a quick whip just to mix them both together.
After that, fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese gently so as to retain the airiness and lightness.
Take out half cup of this prepared cream separately.
Next, add in biscoff spread to the remaining prepared cream and mix it gently.
Once it’s all combined, set it aside. Your biscoff tiramisu cream is ready.
Next, we will assemble the tiramisu.
To assemble the tiramisu, dip the biscoff one by one in the coffee syrup. Don’t soak them. Just quickly dip them to get them wet.
Place them in a single layer on the bottom of your serving dish.
Top this with half of the prepared tiramisu cream. Spread it evenly.
Add another layer in the same way. Smooth remaining tiramisu cream over the top.
Top this with the reserved half cup of plain prepared cream. Smoothen it or you can give any design of your choice.
Top it with 2-3 crushed lotus biscoffs.
Let the tiramisu set in the fridge for about 5-6 hours. This will result in a very flavorful and well set tiramisu.
