Strawberry tiramisu puts a twist on the classic tiramisu dessert. This gluten-free dessert is made with layers of ladyfingers soaked with richly flavoured strawberries and light creamy mascarpone cheese. For the topping, I went an extra step and made strawberries dipped in chocolate ganache sauce.
this gluten-free strawberry tiramisu recipe is super easy!
I promise you that anyone can make this dessert. This Italian inspired dessert is all about mixing and layering. There is nothing to it, and you will get exceptional results every time. To keep this gluten-free dessert simple, you can buy gluten-free ladyfingers. If you have time, I recommend making them from scratch. Please see the gluten-free ladyfingers recipe below.
First, half of the strawberries are chopped and mixed with strawberry preserve and alcohol. If you want to skip the alcohol, you can replace it with orange juice. For extra special occasions like Valentine’s, I like to add Rum or Cointreau for an exotic flavour, and they are both gluten-free.
The mascarpone cheese mixture is made super simple without added eggs. The classic tiramisu recipe has egg yolks, which have to be cooked before adding them to the mascarpone cheese. In this recipe, I skipped the eggs keeping the mascarpone layer light. I did add a couple of tablespoons of alcohol, but you can replace it with an extra 1/2 a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract.
Once the strawberry mixture and the mascarpone cream is ready, all you have to do is start layering. Somewhere in between, I added some more fresh strawberries, giving this gluten-free tiramisu fresh strawberry flavour – this dessert is sooo good!
There are a couple of options here. The simplest option is sliced strawberries. However, if you want to impress someone, top this heavenly gluten-free tiramisu cake with chocolate ganache strawberries. YUM.
For the chocolate ganache dipped strawberries, I know it is an extra step…but well worth it. The chocolate ganache sauce takes about 4 minutes to make. The thing to remember when making strawberries dipped in chocolate is, the strawberries must be dry. If they are wet, the chocolate sauce doesn’t stick to the strawberries very well.
Whether you are celebrating Valentine’s or another special occasion, I promise you will not be disappointed with this gluten-free strawberry tiramisu dessert. Enjoy!
