July is National Ice Cream Month, so it’s the perfect time to share this Tiramisu Ice Cream Cake Recipe with you!

Traditional tiramisu is a light-as-air chilled dessert that consists of ladyfingers dipped in a coffee-liqueur mixture, then layered with mascarpone and grated chocolate. While it’s absolutely heavenly, we wanted something a bit more refreshing for summer.

Seeing that we have a fascination with frozen layered cakes, we thought we’d put a frozen, layered spin on traditional tiramisu. So in this recipe, you will find the traditional tiramisu ingredients, but we are substituting light vanilla ice cream for mascarpone.

Ladyfingers are small, finger-shaped sponge cakes available in two forms – crisp and soft. They can be found in most grocery stores as well as specialty markets. Crisp ladyfingers absorb the espresso-liqueur mixture really well without becoming mushy so that is what we prefer to use.

Before assembling this tiramisu cake, it’s essential to soften your ice cream. The best way to do this is by placing it in the refrigerator for 20 minutes, then scoop it into a large mixing bowl and beat until smooth.  This way it is universally smooth before spreading over the soaked ladyfingers.

To serve, lift cake from pan using plastic wrap overhang. Remove plastic wrap. Dust top of cake with cocoa powder. Slice into 1-inch slices.

Kitchen Tips:

1 package (3 to 3 1/2 oz.) soft ladyfingers can be used in place of crisp, but be sure to dip, not soak in the espresso liquid.

Here is the Tiramisu Ice Cream Cake nutrition information. The slices are generous in size, so they can easily be cut in half making 16 servings total (this is what we do!).

    Been thinking about this recipe for awhile. I’ve been looking for lady fingers but I might have to make them. Would a sprinkling of chocolate Quick be too much? It’s really calling to me.🙂

    I read it is hard to find Lady Fingers. If I want to find them, where is the best place to buy them? Never bought them before and I love Tiramisu dessert. I just read the other ingredients, sounds like a lot of ingredients, hope I can find them all.

      I’ve found them at Cost Plus/World Market, Gelson’s and Ralph’s recently (Southern California area). Not sure if that helps but wanted to mention. I hope you can find them – this is such a tasty recipe!
