Quick Tiramisu Pots

What is there not to love about these gorgeous pots of tiramisu?  Great to eat at parties as they can be made well ahead of guests arriving, and these are no cook, just putting together!  This recipe makes around 3 depending on the glass or pot you use.  Just alter the amount of ingredients to the number of people you are making them for.  Decorate as you want.



  • 125g Mascarpone cheese
  • 284ml Double Cream
  • 70ml Marsala Wine (Or you could use Amaretto)
  • 3 Tbsp of Caster Sugar
  • 150ml of Boiling Water with 1 Tbsp of Instant Espresso Granules mixed together
  • Pack of Sponge Fingers (Lady Fingers)
  • Dark Chocolate – Few Chunks grated.
  • 1Tsp Cocoa Powder

Whisk the double cream and the sugar with the Marsala/Amaretto until thick.  Fold in the mascarpone cheese.  It should be the consistency of whipped double cream.  If it isn’t, just whisk for a little longer.  Set to one side.

Get your pot/whiskey glass or other tumbler ready, and then dip the lady finger sponges into the coffee, gently lift out and then make a layer in the bottom of the glass.  Then spoon a layer of the double cream over, followed by a layer of the grated chocolate.  Repeat this process a couple more times until you end up with your last layer of cream mix, where I dust over cocoa and the grated chocolate.  Place in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
