5 Minute Tiramisu

  • Prep time 5 mins

Its not the real thing, but it is very tasty, super simple to make and has an attractive appearance. Make this as a treat for some last minute dinner guests!



  1.  Decide on how you want to plate this dessert. To make individual servings you can use small side plates, 4 oz low rimmed ramekins or small bowls. If you wanted to make a serve yourself version use a small (5in. by 9 in.) low rimmed casserole dish. With this route you will need two containers of yogurt and some extra coffee perhaps.
  2.  Mix sugar into fresh brewed coffee and then let it cool to room temperature.
  3.  Transfer coffee to a wide bottom bowl.
  4.  Set up in the order, from left to right or vice versa, ladyfingers, coffee and dish that you are using.
  5.  Now its time to dip the ladyfingers. Its very important that you do not dip for too long, or they will get soggy. So dip horizontally, for about 2 seconds and so the coffee comes up half way on the lady finger and then flip sides…dip for 2 seconds longer and then place in your dish. Repeat until the bottom of the dish is covered with coffee dipped ladyfingers.
  6.  Now top with a ½ – 1 inch layer of yogurt, and then sprinkle with shaved dark chocolate (microplane or fine holes of a cheese grater) or cocoa powder dusted through a strainer.
  7.  Just like a real tiramisu, its best to leave for at least a few hours in the fridge before eating so the lady fingers can soak up some moisture. Overnight works too!
  8.  Serve and enjoy this simple tasty dessert!!


  •  Try using a different flavoured yogurt, but stick with the Krema, Liberte Meditteranee or another greek style yogurt as it has to be thick!
