  • Lady Fingers {soft cookies} - 10-12 . If you do not find these cookies use vanilla sponge cake.
  • Instant Coffee Powder - 1/2 tbsp
  • Water - 1/2 cup
  • Milk - 2 tbsp
  • Coffee Flavored Ice Cream - 4-8 scoops softened as desired
  • chocolate or/and Vanilla Ice cream - few scoops softened
  • Whipped Cream - 1/4 cup learn hot to make it at home if you do not get ready in the market
  • Strawberries or other berries and fruits
  • Chocolate bar for shavings as garnish or coco powder.


Make Coffee

  • Heat 1 cup of water and add instant coffee powder and milk to it. Set aside.

Making whipped cream at home if you can not buy from the market

  • Take 1/2 cup heavy cream and add few drops of vanilla essence and 1 tbsp powdered sugar to it. Beat it with electric beater for about 3-4 minutes on high till it fluffs up and comes together leaving trails in the cream. Be careful not to make butter out of it. For best results, chill the bowl and the blade attachment of the electric beater in freezer for 15 minutes before using. It gives great qualty of whipped cream with ease.

Assembling the Tiramisu Sundae

  • Take the dessert bowl or glass of your choice.
  • Tear the Lady fingers (Italian cookies) into rough pieces and place them at the bottom of the bowl or glass. You may make this layer thin or thick, as desired.
  • Pour 2 tbsp coffee on top of the cookies to make them soft. Press them down with spoon, firmly.
  • Add a scoop or 2 of Coffee Ice cream and then some vanilla or chocolate ice cream.
  • Add a dollop of whipped cream on top.
  • Shave some chocolate on top of the cream, with the help of vegetable peeler or sprinkle some coco powder.
  • Place the fruits on top.
  • Either serve it immediately or cover and freeze for later.


To make it more adult friendly, you may add Kahlua or Coffee liquor in the coffee.
To make it more kids' friendly, add chocolate drink instead of coffee to soak the cookies. Also, skip the coffee and just use the ice cream of their choice.
