Quick Tiramisu Trifles

quick tiramisu trifle recipeI am typing this from our hotel room in Kansas City on my husband’s net book. This will short, this teeny tiny keyboard is hard to type on. We had a great weekend being tourists and seeing what Kansas and Missouri have to offer. I love that the whole city smells like smoky wood and barbecue. It might not really, but after a visit to Arthur Bryant’s, I am still dreaming about BBQ. The burnt ends were everything that I was hoping for. Sometimes when you read about something, you get sucked into the hype, and the end result is disappointing. This was not the case.

We are leaving our hotel in Kansas City tomorrow and making our way closer to our new house. The movers cannot deliver our household goods until Friday, so we are trying to keep busy in the meantime. We will clean the house, figure out where everything should go, and tomorrow the cable guy comes. Yeah! We have not had cable in over a year, so we are excited to watch TV on an actual TV, not a laptop.

This quick tiramisu is a delight. It is really easy, sometimes tiramisu can be involved, but if you can whip, dunk, and layer, you are in for a treat.

    It is a really good place to start, I also like that it has no eggs in it. Raw egg kind of grosses me out.

    Yum! Tiramisu is my all-time favorite dessert, but I am afraid of the raw eggs in most recipes so I have yet to make it at home. I will be trying this recipe very soon. I hope you enjoy your new home. I grew up in Lawrence/Kansas City. If you like Mongolian BBQ, you have to go to Genghis Kahn in midtown KCMO. I have dreams about that place. Check it out https://www.gkbbq.com.

    Me too, I am always a little leery of eating raw eggs. Thanks for the recommendation, I’ll add it to the list.

    I love tiramisu! This will be the first time i’m making on my own though, so I was wondering will taste okay without the rum?

  26. bakedbree

    September 3rd, 2011 at 8:44 am

    Sure, I would add a little vanilla instead.

    Hi, these sound wonderful. How many people does your recipe cater for? I need to make 20 servings! Many thanks.

  28. bakedbree

    September 23rd, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    It really depends on the size of your container. I think that this one makes about 8 servings.

  29. Marissa Kubinski

    I will be trying this recipe out tonight. Do you think a couple hours in the fridge will be ok?

  30. bakedbree

    September 23rd, 2011 at 9:49 pm

    It will taste better after a few hours.

    Hi,
    How many servings oes this recipe make? Also can we use any other wafers since ladyfingers are mostly available during Thanksgiving?

  36. bakedbree

    March 14th, 2013 at 9:55 pm

    3 or 4? It depends on the size of the container you use. And ladyfingers are available year round. I buy them all the time. But, use whatever you want.

  37. Anuradha

    March 14th, 2013 at 3:40 pm

    Hi,
    Looks delish! How many servings (ramekins) did this quantity of ingredients make?

  38. bakedbree

    March 14th, 2013 at 9:48 pm

    3-4? I am not really sure, I made that a few years ago. It depends on the size of the ramekin too.

  39. maggie

    Can I make this in a trifle dish instead of individual dishes?

  40. bakedbree

    January 10th, 2016 at 2:33 pm

    Absolutely!

  41. Michea
