Enjoy two of the best summer fruits with this eggless Peach Raspberry Tiramisu! It is full of wonderful flavours which will give you a great taste experience.
Why is this recipe good
If you are a fan of Tiramisu and you also like fruits, you will love this recipe! Peaches and raspberries go very well together and the addition of coffee is surprisingly great as well. This dessert is a perfect flavour combination and is also easy to make. Instead of raw eggs, which are an element of the classic tiramisu, we are using here fruit puree. The result is very tasty and elegant: the perfect cake for summer parties!
How did I come up with this recipe
I am a big fan of different Tiramisu recipes. Not surprisingly you can find in this blog several variations of the Italian dessert, using different fruits.
This year my number one fruit is her majesty The Peach. Not that it is my most favourite (I love all summer fruits), it’s just that this year somehow it went into my culinary focus.
That’s how it came up to my mind to make a tiramisu with peaches. But later I thought that the peach flavour needed something additional to enhance it. Raspberry was the natural choice for me as I love raspberries so much… In fact the current dessert is very similar to the Apricot Tiramisu with Blueberries from last year but this time for a change it is made in a rectangular pan.
If you never combined peaches with raspberries, you are missing the fantastic taste combination they bring together! The mascarpone cheese and marsala wine compliment them additionally, so the overall experience is really great.
Tips for making this recipe
- Instead of peaches, you can make this recipe with nectarines. In fact I used exactly nectarines for decoration on the photos.
- If you don’t find marsala wine, you can get creative and use other flavoured liquors: cognac, port wine or amaretto could go well. Just don’t forget that this dessert is meant for adults as it contains coffee and alcohol.
- This Peach Raspberry Tiramisu is not at all hard to make. Same as other tiramisu recipes, the longest and the most challenging part is letting it stay in the fridge for 6-8 hours or overnight before serving.
If you try this recipe, I will be very glad if you share your experience with me!

Peach and Raspberry Tiramisu
For the tiramisu
- 2 medium peaches, peeled and chopped
- 1 tbs brown sugar
- 1 cup / 150 g raspberries
- 3 tbs marsala wine
- 2 cups/ 500 g mascarpone cheese
- ⅞ cup / 100 g powdered sugar
- 44-48 ladyfingers, about 400 g/ 14 oz
- ⅔ cup / 150 ml strong coffee
- 4 tbs / 60 ml milk
- 2 peaches, sliced
- ½ cup / 60 g white chocolate , grated (optional)
- In a small saucepan combine peaches, sugar and 1 tbs marsala wine. Place it over medium heat, stir occasionally and bring to boil. Lower the heat and let simmer for 4-5 minutes to thicken a bit. Shortly before removing the pan from the heat, add the raspberries and stir until combined. Let the mixture cool until room temperature before using it in the frosting.
- In a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer beat together mascarpone and powdered sugar. Little by little add the fruit mixture (cooled until room temperature). Continue beating until absorbed.
- In a soup plate combine coffee, 2 tbs marsala wine and milk. Stir until homogeneous.
- Dip shortly the ladyfingers in the coffee mixture and arrange them on the bottom of a rectangular pan. Spread some of the frosting on top (depending on how many layers you will be making it can be ½ or ⅓ of the whole quantity). Optionally sprinkle some grated chocolate over the frosting. Continue the same process until using all ladyfingers and frosting.
- Cover the pan with film or with aluminium foil and transfer to the fridge. Let sit for 6-8 hours or overnight.
- Decorate with peach slices and white chocolate shaves before serving.
- I used 33 x 23 cm /13 x 9 inch pan and managed to make 2 layers with 2 lines of ladyfingers. If you have a pan with different dimensions, you can make a different arrangement. Consider cutting some of the ladyfingers if they don’t fit in the pan.
- You can use nectarines instead of peaches.
- You can make the same recipe using only raspberries. Just increase the quantity accordingly to substitute all the peaches.
