Baileys and Amaretto Tiramisu



I have made this dessert for a family Xmas party but its not been eaten yet so the jury is still out on this one! I saw this in one of my magazines and thought I would give it a go as it looked impressive but doesn’t require too much effort, I am not the best at desserts really as its all too technical for me and the ” chuck it all in” method rarely works. The dessert pictured has double the ingredients below and will probably feed about 12.
No cooking required!


Serves 6 – 8.

200 ml black coffee freshly made and cooled
2 tbsp amaretto
500 ml
double cream
250g Mascarpone
3 tbsp Golden Caster Sugar
50ml Baileys
1 tsp Vanilla extract
175g Sponge fingers
2 Tbsp Cocoa Power
2 tbsp grated chocolate


Mix the cooled coffee with the Amaretto and put in a shallow dish.

Whip the cream, mascarpone, vanilla, sugar and Baileys together until it forms soft peaks, being careful not to over whip.

Dip the sponge fingers in the coffee until they have soaked up some liquid but are not falling apart then line the bottom of your serving bowl and layer with cream, then fingers then cream etc.

If you want to make it look fancy you can put some cream in a piping bag and pipe blobs on top.

Sieve the cocoa power over the top and decorate with the grated chocolate.


*Remember not to let the kids have any 😉

For a family friendly version just leave out the booze and use decaf, it wont be as good though obviously!




  1. Let us know how everyone likes it


  2. I think you need a lot more booze in it. It looks spectacular.


  3. Very interesting version. Looks so tasty. 🙂


  4. Woooww you got my attention. Love the addition of the baileys 😉
