Dairy and Sugar-Free Tiramisu
150 g mascarpone (vegan)
4 tablespoons sucanat
3 tablespoons cocoa or carob powder
100 ml espresso
2 tablespoons coffee liqueur or cognac
Separate the egg yolks from the whites.
In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks with the sucanat until incorporated. In another bowl , whisk the egg whites until you get a foamy texture, then add slowly the yolk cream and vegan mascarpone.
Pour the cooled coffee in a bowl and add the coffee liquor or cognac. Dip the lady fingers in the liquid (not too much) and layer them in a medium tray (6-8 lady fingers / layer). Over the first layer of lady fingers add a layer of cream, then another layer of soaked lady fingers. Cover with cream and garnish with powdered cocoa or carob.
Let it cool for at least 5 hours before serving.
I hope you'll like this easy and delicious tiramisu recipe. You can use normal mascarpone cheese of course but I try to be as dairy-free as possible. Also I recommend you to use organic eggs bought from a safe source.
