This easy, no-cook recipe for Tiramisu is a keeper. Comes together in 30 minutes; this recipe is perfect for potlucks.

Two slices of Tiramisu served in white plates.

Tiramisu – though Italian by origin, has won the hearts of people all over the world. My only regret is that I did not make this sooner or even think of making it. I was under the impression that it needed a lot of ingredients and skills that I believed I seriously lacked. But that is so far from the truth – you can make Tiramisu even if you haven’t made any kind of cake before. You can’t go wrong with this recipe!

I read through many recipes before settling for this Tiramisu recipe. I was a little nervous and skeptical because I modified the recipe and was unsure how my Tiramisu would turn out.  The occasion seemed perfect, though – T’s birthday was around the corner, and also I was hosting my friends who were kind enough to volunteer as guinea pigs. What more motivation could I ever need?

So what’s great about this recipe is –  Easy to make (check), Crowdpleaser (check), and Makes people take you seriously as a cook (BIG SMILE followed by a happy dance and a BIG check).

Note: This recipe uses raw eggs. Please make sure to use fresh eggs!
