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

Ingredients

Add to Grocery List

  • 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

How to Make Shortcut Tiramisu Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare cake mix as directed on box, baking in two circle layer pans. Let cool.
  2. Once cooled, poke holes using a fork into both layers, then pour 1/2 cup of the coffee over each layer.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
