Fresh berries, biscuits, and cream layered together make this French-inspired Raspberry Tiramisu recipe an instant classic sure to please!
This post and recipe was created for #EasterSweetsWeek. I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.
My good friend and photographer Fanette is French… and with her comes a lifetime worth of food experiences that I’ve never even imagined.
French cuisine and baking is one avenue which I have never explored and the benefit of having a French friend who is also a foodie means she bakes and I eat!

I asked if Fanette help out with a recipe for #EasterSweetsWeek and she jumped at the chance to make something from her childhood.
Fanette has fond memories of her grandmother in France making a delicious dessert made of raspberries and cream and wanted to make that for today.
Unfortunately, recipes in France often call for ingredients only found in France… not America.
So, Fanette decided on this recipe for Raspberry Tiramisu inspired by what her grandmother in France made for her as a child.
Fanette’s Raspberry Tiramisu is a simple, layered dessert that is nothing short of spectacular in flavor. Trust me, I had about three servings the first time she served it to me and then took home two more for leftovers.
The first layer is fresh berries that have been mashed until juicy. Dipped in the berries and juice are traditional French boudoirs biscuits… or as we call them in America, Lady Fingers.
Once the lady fingers are soaked in berry, they line the bottom of the serving dish and are immediately topped with more fresh berries. Following the berries is a cream mixture that may surprise you.
The cream mixture is made from not only heavy cream, but eggs and mascarpone cheese! For American’s this mixture may seem strange, but to those in France it’s a traditional cream mixture used in many desserts.
Let me tell you – we’re missing out here in America because this Raspberry Tiramisu is AMAZING.
The tart berries, the crunch and sweetness of the biscuits paired with the creamy, smooth, rich cream is pure perfection. I can see why Fanette loved when her grandmother made desserts with this cream and berries and why it’s still a favorite today.
So, thank you to Fanette for being inspired by her family to make this for us today.
I am incredibly thankful to have a friend who loves to share her culture and her recipes with me.
