Unlike the traditional tiramisu, this tiramisu crepe cake is easy to make, but it doesn’t lack in taste! Imagine delicate, thin layers of crepes sandwiched with thick layers of sweetened crème…what’s not to love!

Every bite is rich and creamy and packed with coffee flavor—just what you’d expect from a traditional tiramisu! If you’ve been hesitant to make tiramisu because you think it’s too difficult, then why not give this Tiramisu crepe Cake a try? You’ll love how easy it is, and will fall in love with the taste.


How To Make Tiramisu Crepe Cake

Make the crepe batter by whisking together all the ingredients. Allow chilling in the fridge while you prepare the filling. Whisk the filling ingredients until fluffy and smooth, cover, and store in the fridge. Cook the crepes until all the crepe batter is used.

Layer the crepes and filling in a cake tin and store them overnight in the fridge. Flip the cake over onto a cake stand and serve.


Instead of crepes, you can also use vanilla wafers, Oreo biscuits, or graham crackers.

For best results, use Philadelphia cream cheese and a high-quality mascarpone.


How To Store Tiramisu Crepe Cake

The Tiramisu Crepe Cake can be made a few days ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to 4 days. It is often best when served the following day.

Can You Freeze Tiramisu Crepe Cake?

The assembled cake (without the sprinkling of cocoa on top) can be frozen. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and freeze for up to 3 months. To serve, thaw in the fridge (overnight) and dust with cocoa powder just before serving.
