Easy Raspberry Tiramisu

We’re starting the Italian-themed week on Not Enough Cinnamon with a popular recipe from the archive: an easy raspberry tiramisu!

 Easy Raspberry Tiramisu

Oh raspberries, how I love you! Seriously, they must be one of my favorite fruits ever, along with cherries and bananas. Oh and maybe strawberries too. It’s too hard to choose. How many times have I said on this blog that a fruit was my favorite? Too many I suppose. But really, raspberries are so delicate, sweet with just a bit of bitter… the perfect fruit if you ask me! And I also like the fact that they’re hairy, it’s funny. And I like funny things that people usually don’t find funny at all. Apparently the hairy thing protects them from being damaged by insects. Which makes me think that, if I had a garden, I would grow:

1. Basil.
2. Basil – again. I think that’s actually a whole basil field I’d need. A garden isn’t large enough. (Pestoooo anyone?)
3. Raspberries. Because, remember, they’re protected against insects. So I suppose it doesn’t require a lot of work. (Yes, I’m totally lazy)


And then I’d plant a cherry tree. But that’s a different story.

 Easy Raspberry Tiramisu
So this tiramisu is perfect because…there’s raspberry in it. And it’s very easy to make. Like pretty much every recipe on this blog. Plus you’re probably tired of the traditional coffee tiramisu, right? I guess it’s not the first time you’ve seen this one either, but hey, that’s already a good change in my opinion.

Let’s see, what your favorite fruit? Yes, you can only pick one! 😉

  1. Oh my word… These look amazing! I absolutely adore raspberries (and basil and cherries!!!), so that makes this dish even more loveable! I’ve never bought mascarpone, so I’d be venturing into some new territory, for sure. But these look soooo worth it. Thanks for the gorgeous and delicious posts!

  2. Instead of using lady fingers could you substitute them for pound cake? I would rather have it soft then crunchy. I’ve never made tiramisu so i dont know if the lady fingers will soften up.

    1. I’m not sure pound cake would work well in this recipe. But don’t worry about the lady fingers being too crunchy, they will indeed soften up a lot!

  3. I really like the looks and the recipe I wonder about the egg yolks not getting cooked though. Are you mixing them in a double boiler? Did I miss something?
