Shortcut Tiramisu Cake

Chelsea Mitcham


I am lactose intolerant so the typical tiramisu is off-limits unless I take my magic pills! Plus, the typical tiramisu is a bit too rich for my taste. I came up with this for a graduation party and we all loved it! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did

pinch tips: How to Grease a Pan



1 box
white or chocolate cake mix(i prefer white but you could also marble them)
1 1/2 c
very strong brewed coffee or espresso
16 oz
cool whip, thawed
4 oz
cream cheese/neufchatel, thawed

Directions Step-By-Step

Prepare cake mix as directed on box, baking in two circle layer pans. Let cool.
Once cooled, poke holes using a fork into both layers, then pour 1/2 cup of the coffee over each layer.
Beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add the 1/2 cup remaining coffee. Fold in the cool whip. If yours looks really watery I suggest you stick this in the freezer a few minutes before icing the cake.
Frost between the layers then all around. I like to serve this cake slightly frozen, but chilled it is just as good. Just remember that you can't leave it out too long due to the cool whip :-D
