  • 8 tsp fresh coffee grounds (heaped) we use Vietnamese Trung Nguyen, but you can use any coffee you like
  • 250 g sponge finger / savoiardi biscuits
  • 300 g thickened cream
  • 200 g condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 4 phins vietnamese iced coffee + 4 tbsp condensed milk 2 tsp coffee grounds per phin
  • dark chocolate shaved


  • Prepare four batches of coffee in a traditional vietnamese phin filter (or a moka pot or plunger). Dollop in the 4 tablespoons of condensed milk.
  • Add thickened cream, the remaining 200g of sweetened condensed milk, caster sugar and vanilla essence into a mixing bowl. Beat with an electric beater for 6 - 10 mins until strong peaks form.
  • Dip biscuits into sweetened coffee and layer into serving dish. Spread each layer with cream, keep layering until biscuits and cream are finished. Pour any remaining coffee over the last layer of biscuits before the final layer of cream.
  • Sprinkle top layer with shaved dark chocolate. Store in the fridge until ready to serve.


A simple no-bake dessert recipe this may be, but feel free to get as fancy as you like with its presentation. You could serve it up in cute little individual glass dishes, or make a decadent round tower cake… But if you opt to keep things simple like we did, and dish it up in your favourite everyday baking dish, we promise it’ll be just as delicious! 
Quick note before you get cracking: for the most visually pleasing presentation, sprinkle your shaved chocolate or chocolate powder over the tiramisu just before serving!
