5 Minute 5 Ingredient Tiramisu – This is such a tasty crowd pleasing dessert, traditionally this is made using Savoiardi biscuits aka lady fingers which contain eggs, so to make a vegan version it normally requires making a batter, baking it, cooling it and slicing it so we avoid all this by simply using your favourite store bought plain biscuit – trust us this really does work! The name translates to “pick me up” in english due to the coffee, fat and sugar content! This is a peared back version so if you do want to make it fancier add 2 tbsp of brandy to your coffee and mix 200g of vegan cream cheese through the cream for a richer thicker more indulgent cream. Introducing our dessert hack… 5 Minute 5 Ingredient Tiramisu

5 Minute, 5 Ingredient Tiramisu

Tiramisu in 5 minutes…a great dessert hack and a total crowd pleaser!

Takes 5 minutes

Serves 8


  • 500 g vegan cream whipped
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 60 g icing sugar
  • 300 ml strong coffee
  • 500 g digestive biscuit


  • Brew your coffee good and strong and add in 3 tbsp of icing sugar and mix well. 
  • Whip the cream until it reaches stiff peaks and add in 3 tbsp of icing sugar and mix well.
  • Dunk each biscuit twice to three times, depending on how hard the biscuits are as you want the biscuits to break down and end up almost like a sponge after soaking and sitting. Get a baking tray approx 25cm x 25cm x 3cm high or else 9 x9 inches x .3inches and layer on a single layer of the soaked biscuits. Add a generous layer of cream followed by a nice dusting or sprinkling of cocao powder. 
  • Do another layer of soaked biscuits, followed by a layer of cream and a generous dusting of cacao powder again et voila your tiramisu is good to go!
