An Easy Berry Tiramisu Recipe

Updated on September 9, 2014

Tiramisu - The perfect dessert for BBQ's and summer parties

Berry tiramisu makes a great dessert - it's easy, looks beautiful and does not leave out all those people who don't like coffee.

Serve it for Christmas, thanksgiving, a family BBQ there is never a wrong time to make this.. well perhaps it's not great for the lactose intolerant ;-)

Beware this is an entertaining size recipe so either invite lots of guests or put on your comfy jeans!

The word Tiramisu means "pull me up" or "pick me up" in Italian.

The coffee in a standard tiramisu will do just that but this recipe is more likely just going to make you happy!

Cooking times

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 3 hours
Ready in: 3 hours 30 min
Yields: 12 people


  • 2 packets Sponge Finger Biscuits, or chopped sponge cake
  • 750 grams Frozen berries, + fresh berries for the top
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 100 grams caster sugar
  • 500 grams Italian mascapone
  • 5 egg whites
  • 100 mls Berry Liquer or cordial


  1. Soak the sponge fingers in berry liquer, berry juice or milk
  2. Beat the egg yolks and the sugar until they look a nice pale colour then add the mascapone and fold until combined.
  3. using clean beaters and a clean bowl beat the egg whites. The bowl needs to be clean and dry to start to give the best results.
  4. Fold through the first mixture and place in the fridge for 1 hour
  5. Place a layer of sponge fingers at the bottom of a bowl, cover with a layer of berries and then a thin layer of cream mix. Repeat until all ingredients are used. Finish with a thicker layer of the cream mixture and fresh berries. You can grate chocolate or coconut chips over the top for decoration if you like.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Can be made the night before for a lunch time party.

      Yum! I was just watching the Food Channel and how Tiramisu is very traditional, however there are these two people who made different types of tiramisu ranging from different flavors and types! Thanks for sharing this lens because I am going to try and make this berry tiramisu instead of the traditional one for my next party. Thanks for sharing!

      I love raspberries. This looks like a way of getting in some healthy fruit into a dessert. May have to leave out the alcohol if I am making it for the kids.
