The traditional tiramisu uses marscapone and raw egg yolks. Slightly less traditional is the tempering of egg yolks on a double boiler to kill off any potential pathogens. Now the truly unorthodox, practically not even tiramisu, is using whipped cream to get that delicious creamy texture.

It may not be traditional, but if you're craving that creamy texture, filled with fluffy coffee infused lady fingers, BUT you're too lazy to go through the process of making legit tiramisu, or you just don't have all the ingredients in hand, this is the recipe for you!

Let's make it!

Fast and Easy 6 Ingredient Tiramisu


  • Loaf Pan or 4 Small Mason Jars
  • Medium Bowl
  • Beater with Whisk
  • Shallow Dish


  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tbspn Sugar
  • 1/2 tspn Ground Cinnamon
  • 7 oz Lady Fingers
  • 8 oz Espresso Coffee
  • 1 Tbspn Cocoa Powder


Total Time: 40 minutes

Servings: 4 Jars.

  1. The first thing you'll want to do is brew a cup of Coffee. We make Cuban Espresso, but you can use your favorite kind of coffee. Then, put it in the fridge or freezer to chill. I left mine in the freezer for 20-30 minutes to speed up the process.
  2. While the coffee cools, prepare the whipped cream. Add Heavy Cream, Sugar, and Cinnamon to a medium to large bowl. Using a mixer with the whisk attachment, Whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Using a cold bowl, whisk, and heavy cream get you the fluffiest whipped cream.
  3. Pour the cold coffee into a shallow dish, open up your lady finger package, and have a spoon ready with the whipped cream, it's time to assemble. We used cute mason jars to get 4 individual portions, but, for easier assembly I recommend a loaf pan, or small cake or brownie pan.
  4. Dip a lady fingers into the coffee, coating lightly and briefly, and place in the pan. repeat until you've made a single layer in the pan. These babies soak up super quickly, so don't leave it in there for too long or it will become a soggy mess.
  5. Then, add a layer of whipped cream.
  6. Repeat steps 4 - 5 until you've reached the top of the pan.
  7. Using a sifter, sprinkle over 1 T of Cocoa powder to create that beautiful finished look and enjoy!

Tips for Filling a Mason Jar

#1 Yes, this involved cutting lady fingers in half and some crushing into the mason jars. If you guys find a better way to do this, let me know fam!

#2 To get a cleaner look, use a piping bag, or a ziptop bag with  a tip cut off, to pipe in the whipped cream.
