Tiramisu the easy way

This is a super easy cheater tiramisu – everyone loves it!

Tiramisu the easy way


  • 1 – small container of cool whip
  • 1 – 8 ounce container of ricotta cheese
  • 1 sara lee pound cake (I use the bigger one – they sell 2 sizes)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons of sugar
  • 2 cups VERY strong coffee
  • Cocoa for serving


  1. Mix the ricotta with the 1/2 cup sugar, let set a minute, then fold in the cool whip.
  2. Mix the 2 tablespoons sugar with the strong coffee
  3. Cut the pound cake into thin slices.
  4. Get an oblong container (I use one of those cheapo glad rectangle containers for this) dip each slice of pound cake into the coffee – then lay in the container till the bottom of it is covered, then put a layer of the ricotta mixture, then do another layer of the dipped pound cake, then the ricotta mixture until it is all used up – ending with the ricotta mixture. Sprinkle with cocoa right before serving.
