This Gluten-Free Baked Tiramisu Cheesecake is outstanding! Think of this heavenly dessert as Greece meets Italy. This gluten-free cake is a mix of cheesecake and tiramisu. What a great combination, don’t you think?

three layer tiramisu cheesecake

Three layers make up this cake. First, a buttery chocolate shortbread crust, then a layer of coffee flavoured cheesecake and for the final layer, I combined whipping cream with mascarpone cheese and cocoa.

The Gluten-Free Baked Tiramisu Cheesecake recipe isn’t complicated, but it does take a little more time than my usual 15-minute recipes. Whether you like cheesecake or tiramisu, the two combined make for an insanely delicious gluten-free dessert. More on gluten-free tiramisu recipes here->




the details…

start with the shortbread crust,

Cream the butter with sugar, then add the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Press the mixture into the pan and bake. Just as a side note, this gluten-free dessert recipe is primarily flavoured with cocoa powder and espresso.

for the second layer – the cheesecake,

Cream the cream cheese with sugar. Add the cocoa powder, eggs, vanilla and espresso and whip it up. Then stir in almond flour. As soon as the crust is done baking and still hot, spread the cream cheese mixture over the top.

Pop it back in the oven and bake until the cheese layer is firm to touch. This layer will deflate a bit once it cools. But don’t stress, you will cover it up with the creamy topping.

for the third layer – the heavenly creaminess,

This layer is made with mascarpone cheese, maple syrup, cocoa powder and whipped cream. Once the cheesecake layer has cooled, remove it from the pan and top with the creamy topping—a sprinkle of cocoa powder to finish the gluten-free Tiramisu Cheesecake.

This gluten-free dessert is not complicated to make, but it takes time Because you are working with three layers. But trust me on this, well worth the effort. This baked tiramisu cheesecake is the BEST!

yes you can


Can you sub the arrowroot for tapioca flour? thanks :)


Best. Thing. Ever. Thank you!


can he have other nuts? If he can you can substitute cashew or walnut flour for almond flour. To make flour out of nuts, place them in a food processor and process until grainy but not smooth or they will get very oily. If he can’t have nuts you can try it with GF oat flour


My husband has a sensitivity to almonds, is there something I could substitute instead?
