Ingredients

Lady Fingers

Tiramisu

  • 2 1/2 cups greek yogurt*
  • 9 ounces marscapone cheese
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 ounce 85% dark chocolate shaved
  • 3-4 tablespoons Kahlua
  • 3 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

Instructions

Lady Fingers

  • Preheat over to 320º F.
  • Mix the wet ingredients together in a small bowl along with the baking soda. Mix well to combine.
  • Add the coconut flour and almond flour, mixing well until there are no clumps remaining. Do not worry about overstirring.
  • Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes. The coconut flour is very absorbent, and the batter should thicken up considerably. If after 5 minutes the batter doesn't seem thick enough to pipe into lady fingers, add another tablespoon of coconut flour, mix well, and allow to sit another 5 minutes to thicken.
  • Add the thickened batter to a plastic ziplock bag (or pastry bag). Cut a 1/2 inch slit in one corner, and pipe 2 1/2 inch long strips. Leave space between each one; the batter rises and spreads.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool.

Tiramisu

  • Add the greek yogurt, marscapone cheese, honey and vanilla to a food processor bowl, and process for 30-45 seconds, until mixture is very smooth. This can also be done by hand.
  • Put Kahlua in a small bowl, then dip cooled lady fingers in, soaking the bottom half of each one. Arrange soaked lady fingers along the bottom of a 8×8 baking dish. Cover the lady fingers with 1 cup of yogurt mixture, 1 teaspoon cocoa powder, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder, and 1 tablespoon chopped dark chocolate.
  • Repeat for 2 more layers.
  • Refrigerate to set. For pretty, well-set slices, it’s best to let it set overnight.

Notes

*Store bought lady fingers can be substituted.
**Greek yogurt must be very thick. If your yogurt isn’t super thick, put 2 paper towels on the bottom of a strainer, and add yogurt. Place the strainer into a bowl to catch the whey. Leave in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours, until the excess liquid has drained out of your yogurt. I often use this method with regular yogurt when greek yogurt is not available.
Other liqueurs/spices can be substituted. I recently saw photos of tiramisu’s made with cherries, strawberries, etc., and I think next time I make this it will be a fruity variety!
