A heavenly relish delish for all coffee lovers!

Have a weak spot for some sweet indulgence? Lift this edible dessert bowl and not let go to thoroughly enjoy your luscious dessert - Eggless Tiramisu Mousse.
 One of the most popular Italian dessert Tiramisu, quite literally means, "pick me up", "cheer me up", or "lift me up". A blend of the two bold caffeinated flavors of espresso and cocoa, yet still fairly light dessert is irresistible and unforgettable, as it certainly fulfills the criteria for a pleasurable dining experience. 

This elegant and rich decadent dessert is layers of delicate flavors that would melt in your mouth. A no-bake, no-cake, eggless mousse can be prepared momentarily and chilled until ready to serve. You cannot go wrong with this simple recipe, that sure would be a huge hit at your family dining table. 

I served my Eggless Tiramisu Mousse in the Chocolate Tulip Bowl that I made ahead. For the Chocolate Tulip Bowl recipe click here! Dig in!

Preparation time: 20 mins
Yields:  4 - 6 servings
Level: Easy

Instant espresso granules - 2 teaspoons (your favorite choice)
Heavy whipping cream - 1 cup  
Confectioners sugar/  Powdered sugar - 1 cup
Mascarpone cheese or Cream cheese or Cottage Cheese - 8 ounces
Vanilla extract - 1 teaspoon
Cocoa powder - 1 tablespoon
Baking chocolate (semi-sweet) - 1/4 cup

1. Whip cold heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Once done, refrigerate until ready to use. (Check notes)
2. Blend mascarpone cheese, confectioners sugar and the instant espresso until smooth and creamy. 
3.  Add the vanilla extract the above and mix well. 
4. Gently fold the whipped cream into the espresso mixture. Avoid mixing too much to retain the fluffy texture.

5. You may use a piping bag with a large round or 1M tip to fill in a glass bowl, or simply scoop a small amount using a spoon into the bowl you want to serve in.

6. Layer with a thin layer of cocoa powder and whipped cream alternatively. You may use as many layers you want.

7. The top layer can be decorated with chocolate shavings or dust cocoa powder very sparingly as it can be bitter if used too much.  

8. Refrigerate to chill the Tiramisu Mousse until ready to serve. Enjoy!


  • You may reserve 1 teaspoon of espresso for decorating the top layer with swirls.
  • Whipping heavy cream step can be eliminated to substitute with store bought whipped cream for an easy to make dessert.
