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 be 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.

    Perfect! I love the idea of individual and quick tiramisu cups. This looks so tasty! πŸ™‚

  2. Mary (Sisters Running the Kitchen)

    this is amazing. I have never made Tiramisu before and this quick and easy method may be a good place to start. I love tiramisu! So cute!

    1. bakedbree

      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.

  3. Kelly

    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.

    1. bakedbree

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

  10. K&B

      Thanks Lynn, KC is great! Ready to move into our house, but enjoying what the area has to offer.

  12. Brittany

      please do Brittany. One of my favorites too.

  13. Olivia

    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?

    1. bakedbree

      Sure, I would add a little vanilla instead.

  14. Belinda

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

    1. bakedbree

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

  15. Marissa Kubinski

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

    1. bakedbree

      It will taste better after a few hours.

  16. Mansi

    1. bakedbree

      Just add some coffee to the dipping syrup.

  18. Anuradha

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

    1. bakedbree

      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.

  19. Anuradha

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

    1. bakedbree

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

  20. maggie

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

    1. bakedbree

      Absolutely!

  21. Michea

    Excellent recipe, very easy. Now my official go-to when making a quick dessert. Received many compliments when I made it.

    1. bakedbree

      I’m so glad, I love this one too.
