Eggless Tiramisu With Saviordi Biscuits and Mascarpone Cheese ( Baking Eggless Challenge)

When I read this  April months  Baking-Eggless-Group Challenge for a moment I was speechless. This is my second month in this group and here I was going to make one of the most challenging and well known Italian dessert TIRAMISU .

 I am a fan of Tiramisu but never in my wildest dreams had I thought of making it at home.This complicated delicacy for me was just to be had outside in hotels and  impossible to be done at home.

And here I am posting  the very same TIRAMISU (My Dream Dessert ) which I successfully made , thanks to Gayathri  and Soumya of Nivedhanams ( who suggested this recipe) detailed explainations  were very helpful.

Loved making my own mascarpone cheese.

Loved the coffee and orange juice mixture (substitute for Marsala)

The only disappointing thing was my Saviordi biscuits which were little on the harder side . Must have baked more that required. But once soaked in the juice they were softer ( though not as soft as they should ideally be).

All in all it was a delight trying out this dessert and the journey itself was very thrilling and exciting .





 For the Saviordi Biscuits :

Recipe Adapted From homecookinginmontana

 Ingredients :

3/4 cup...............all purpose flour
4 tbsp................sugar
2tsp..................egg replacer (with 4tbsp water)
1/2 tsp.............vanilla
4 tbsp...............butter


Method for Saviordi 

Beat the egg replacer with water till soft peaks are formed , keep aside.
In a bowl mix sugar and butter well and add the egg replacer mixture.
Mix maida and baking powder well.
Add maida to the butter and fold gently.
Put in a piping bag and pipe out the biscuits.




                                                               Preheat the oven to 180 C.




                                    Bake the biscuits for 8 to 10 mintues. ( I over baked them)
                                       Cool them and keep for further use in airtight container.


For the Mascarpone Cheese


Recipe Adapted From Baking Obsession


250gm ........................fresh cream ( I used Amul)
2 tbsp........................lemon juice.



Method for Mascarpone Cheese

In a heavy bottom pan heat the cream.
When is starts bubbling add the lemon juice and stir.
It will start becoming thick and curdle a bit.
Remove from the gas and pour it in a cheese cloth.
Tie the cheese cloth and keep it in a bowl.
Keep the bowl in fridge overnight.
Next morning the cheese will be soft but hard.
This is the homemade Marcarpone cheese.


For Assembling  the Tiramisu :


1/2 cup .............strong coffee
1/2 cup ............orange juice
125 gm .............fresh cream
3 tbsp.............sugar powder


Method :

First make a strong coffee with 2tbsp coffee powder .
Cool it and add orange juice to it.
Now whip the cream till you get soft peak and mix it well but gently to the Mascarpone cheese





               Now dip the saviordi biscuits in the coffee and orange juice mixture and let them soak for a minute.
                                                Arrange 1/3 biscuits on a tray or in a tin.



                                       Pour 1/3 mascarpne mixture on top and spread evenly.
                                Again repeat the layers of biscuits and mascarpone two more times .
                                        Now keep it in the fridge for about 3 to 4 hours or till firm.
                                              Dust with cocoa powder and serve chilled.
