Step By Step Instructions For This Easy Tiramisu Recipe With Pudding

Step 1: Make the Filling

The first step when you make this Easy Tiramisu Recipe with Pudding is to make the filling. Gather all of the ingredients, not including the espresso/coffee or the lady fingers. In a large bowl, whisk the ingredients together. Although you can also blend the ingredients, when blending it causes foam that is hard to settle.

Whisk the filling until it is smooth. Then, cover the bowl with plastic wrap so that you preserve the filling before you layer the tiramisu dessert. Place this in the refrigerator for preservation.

Step 2: Dip the Lady Fingers

The ladyfingers is the second step is this Easy Tiramisu Recipe with Pudding. You will need to layer out the lady fingers. Take each one and dunk them into a small bowl that is filled with coffee, liquor, and some cocoa. You can add more flavors like vanilla extract if you would like.

This is the easiest step, but if you leave the ladyfingers too long in the mixture, this can cause the cookie to break apart. Instead, lay the ladyfinger inside of the bowl and quickly take it out. Then, place the ladyfingers on top of a smooth and clean surface,

Step 3: Layer the Tiramisu

I also recommend on the third step in this Easy Tiramisu Recipe with Pudding to begin layering the tiramisu. Before you can start layering this delicious and creamy dessert though, you will need to decide how many layers you want. Usually, tiramisu desserts have two to three layers that alternate between ladyfingers and the filling.

First start with the ladyfingers. Then, you can move on to the filling. Do this over and over until the top layer is completely smooth on top.

Step 4: Sprinkle and Garnish

During the fourth step, after the dessert has enough layers, it is good to sprinkle cocoa powder on top as a garnish and decoration. This edible decoration is delicious and adds a splash of color on top of the creamy tan dessert. You can also sprinkly cinnamon on top and in between the layers. It is up to your preference.

Step 5: Eat, Enjoy, and Store

Once you add the final touches, including a sprinkle of cinnamon, you are ready to eat and enjoy the delicious treat! Need to store leftovers? You are in luck, as long as you have room in your fridge or freezer, you can keep leftovers! If you want the leftovers to last up to 4 months long, place them in the freezer in a container with a tight lid.
