At first I was skeptical about this recipe since it had such wierd ingredients. Namely the syrup. But I tried it because of the lack of eggs. I don't like the idea of eating raw eggs. But it turned out to be wonderful. I liked it so much I made it for a family party. They all loved it and asked for the recipe. I've made it about 5 times already. And still crave it. Thanx Read More

I had to try this. I don't totally regret it but it's just not that great traditional tiramisu. I didn't care for the maple and the marscapone cheese was badly missed. Read More

This is the absolute best tiramisu recipe ever. No it isn't Italian restaurant quality but it is the best homemade tiramisu you'll ever make. It was fairly easy and everyone loved it. There were no leftovers. Thanks Nancy B. Read More

Delicious! I wasn't sure about the combination of coffee and maple, but it works real well. To add more maple flavor, I added 1/8 - 1/4 tsp. of maple extract. As an alternative, pound cake would be good in place of ladyfingers. My family loved this. It's quick, easy, and different. Read More

This was a hit in my household! I did alter the recipe a little. I used french vanilla coolwhip instead of regular coolwhip. I used a shot less water and used one shot of kaluha to mix the 2/3 cup of strong coffee. It turned out wonderful! I will certainly make this again! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe Nancy B!

Great recipe. I used an entire package of cream cheese in the 8x8 dish and adjusted the other filling ingredients accordingly. I also added a layer of ladyfingers with the coffee-maple syrup in the middle of two layers of filling. I loved the fact there is no alcohol in this recipe and my guests enjoyed it also at the dessert buffet after high school graduation. Keeps well and I am having some of the leftovers (not much was left) three days later and even better now. Read More

This is truly a great recipe. I tried this recipe yesterday for a party and it was great hit. Thank you for posting it. I made the following changes to make it taste like the real thing. Pour the coffee ( use Gevalia espresso) in a shallow dish add two teaspoons of rum and a little coffee liquor. Mix well. Now place the ladyfingers until they are soaked. Do not leave them for too long. Take them out when they are still a little crispy on one side. Place them on a clean dish untill the entire dish bottom is covered with the fingers. Now poor the rest of the mixture from the shallow pan a little by little. Reserve about two table spoon of this mixture. Now beat a package of cream cheese with 1 cup of heavy whipping cream two teaspoon of the reserves coffee mixture and half a cup of golden syrup. I did not use maple syrup because it has a strong flavor. Golden syrup is english and has a great flavor. Taste the mixture and if you like add more syrup to make it sweeter. Now pour the mixture ob top of the layered fingers spread evenly. Now soft the powdered cocoa on top. Place in the fridge for two hours. You will LOVE it. Read More
