Instant Pudding Is Your Secret Weapon For Easy Tiramisu
Tiramisu may sound simple, since it requires no baking if you use packaged ladyfingers, but nailing the creamy mascarpone layer can be a challenge. Traditionally, the mascarpone cream uses a custard base made with raw egg yolks and sugar, but you can save yourself time and energy by replacing this with instant pudding.
Whether you want to avoid whisking yolks or would just prefer not to include raw eggs in your no-bake treat, instant pudding makes tiramisu even easier. You can certainly get creative and use any flavor you like, but vanilla is the best choice for a classic tiramisu flavor, and all you need is one 3.5-ounce package of mix.
Make the pudding and combine it with the other ingredients — including cream, powdered sugar, and mascarpone — and you'll have a rich and fluffy mixture to spread over each layer of coffee-soaked ladyfingers. Sprinkle the top with cocoa powder and pop it in the fridge until the cookies have absorbed all the liquid and the cream is set.
