Easy no-bake cake with an Italian flair. Try this quick tiramisu cheesecake with layers of cream cheese and mascarpone cremes and coffee infused lady finger cookies.
Coffee, cheesecake, no-bake: My three favorite words! No oven needed to create this amazing dessert!
5 Layers of coffee smooth goodness!
This easy dessert comes together in a few minutes. No need to turn on the oven, only if you like to bake the crust for a few minutes. When I recorded the video and took the pictures I wasn't completely happy with the cake and its layers. The recipe that I developed now is going to have more equally sized layers and a softer cheesecake part.
The lady finger crust is made not only from cookie crumbs and butter but a few tablespoons of coffee increase its flavor greatly.
Cream cheese and whipped cream play a big role in the cheesecake layer. If you like to add some vanilla, coffee or fresh lemon juice to it to give it a wonderful taste!
Coffee infused lady finger cookies are the star of this cake and a creamy mascarpone topping gives this cheesecake a tiramisu flavor! Lastly the chocolate ganache enriches this cake with a silky smooth texture. There is simply no way any coffee lover could say no to this cake!
