BHG Guest Blogger: Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu

strawberry shortcake tiramisu

I am so pleased to be guest blogging over at Better Homes and Gardens’ blog Delish Dish today and sharing a Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu HERE ! I adore Delish Dish and follow it regularly.  And let’s face it, who isn’t familiar with BHG?  They have some incredible recipes on their site that you must try.  I actually picked their classic tiramisu recipe and decided to give it a fun Spring remix.

Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu was the concept I came up with, and let’s just say this is a recipe I will be making again and again this Spring.  And we already know how obsessed with Strawberry Shortcake I am so this was an easy call.  It is so easy, and it is such a lovely change from the traditional strawberry shortcake.

Again, you can check out my guest post, visit BHG’s Delish Dish HERE!

And the recipe is below!

    What an amazing twist on an old favourite! I’m not sure you could go wrong with this. I can’t imagine many people not liking a cross between strawberry shortcake and tiramisu. Such beautiful photos as well. This one is definitely not gettin g away without being pinned!

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Thanks so much Helen!!! I adore strawberry shortcake and tiramisu too! I loved combining them.

  2. says

    I’m a huge tiramisu fan and I love your twist on the classic version, Jocelyn! You’ve been on a roll lately – I am dying to try every single one of your recipes. This looks so, so good. Definitely heading over to check out the recipe :)

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Woot woot! Thank you so much Kathi!!!! That makes me feel soo good! I feel the same way about you!

    My boyfriend doesn’t eat fruit (I know, I’m shaking my head in disappointment, too) but has professed that strawberries “aren’t that bad” and tiramisu is his favorite dessert. This may be the easiest way to bring him over to the dark-side! Such a fun recipe- I can’t wait to try it!

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Yes that is a nice compromise. I have a picky eating husband so I totally understand that!

  4. says

    I’m a big Better Homes and Garden’s fan, I bet working with them is a real treat! And this strawberry tiramisu looks fabulous! I am going to try a gluten free version!

  5. says

    Yum!! I love strawberries and I love tiramisu, so this is like a recipe match made in heaven for me! Plus, I can make this for my mom – she hates coffee flavor, even in desserts, so tiramisu is usually off limits for her…but not this one!

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Thanks so much CakePants! And yes this one is sans coffee which sometimes makes people dislike tiramisu!

  6. Danna says

    I am dying for this recipe, but the links on the BHG site just show the plain tiramisu recipe and so do the links above. Can you paste the text here or somewhere on your site? It looks so good, and I am sad I can’t get to the recipe:-( thank you!!!!

      • Danna says

        Thank you!! I hope everyone finds it – this is definitely getting made for Easter! do you think it would work if I served in in a trifle bowl?? LOVE your site!!

        • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

          Thanks so much Danna! I think it would work so beautifully in a trifle bowl!! It would be such a great presentation! Enjoy and I would love to see a picture!

    Hi, this dessert sounds amazing, however I’m unsure of what frozen whipped dessert topping is? I’m from Australia and I don’t think we have this!

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Hi Belinda, you can also substitute the whipped dessert topping with fresh whipped cream which can be made at home. Let me know if you need a quick recipe for that.

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Hi Sharon, once you dip the ladyfingers in the orange juice and layer it, it will eventually soften up.

  8. Kerry says

    Really pretty and creative, Jocelyn.
    I don’t usually eat frozen whipped dessert topping. Would this work with whipped cream?

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Yes, the original recipe called for whipped dessert topping but that can totally be substituted with homemade whipped cream.

      • Kerry says

        Thank you for your quick reply, Jocelyn. I can’t wait to try this recipe with some organic strawberries. My family will love it!

  9. says

    This looks perfect for an event I’m cooking for next week and can’t wait to give it a try. What size pan do you use for this? 9×13?

    Thanks!!

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Hi Terry, I used an 8×8 pan but the recipe can be doubled to do a larger pan of 9×13.

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Hi Jackie, yes you can definitely freeze this and thaw it when ready to serve.

  10. Marie says

    Hello!! I love this recipe and I’m planking on making it for my Nona’s 90th birthday. Question- for a more authentic Italian taste could I substitute the cream cheese for marscapone cheese but keep everything else the same?

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Hi Marie, yes you can substitute the cream cheese for marscapone cheese, it will just have a slightly different taste but will still come out fine.

    • Jocelyn (Grandbaby Cakes) says

      Hi Nancy, you can use sponge or pound cake but it won’t have the exact same flavor.
