Tiramisu

Makes 10 servings

  • unsalted butter
  • 4 oz. ground almonds
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup Splenda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Grease a 15-by 10-by 1-inch pan with butter. Line with parchment paper and grease with butter again. Preheat the oven to 350 ° F (175 ° C).

Combine the almonds, baking powder and salt. Separate the eggs. With an electric mixer, beat the yolks and Splenda with an electric mixer until thick and lemon coloured, 3-4 minutes. Beat in the vanilla. Fold in the almonds. With a clean bowl and beaters, beat the egg whites to firm peaks. Stir 1/4 into the almond mixture. Fold in 1/2 of the remaining whites until barely combined and then the remaining 1/2 until thoroughly combined. Spread evenly into the prepared pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the top springs back when pressed lightly. Let cool.

  • 5 eggs
  • 5 Tbsp. Splenda
  • 1 500 gr. Container mascarpone
  • 1/2 cup strong coffee
  • 3 Tbsp. rum
  • 1/2 cup cocoa

Separate the eggs. Beat the yolks with the Splenda until thick and lemon coloured. Add the mascarpone and beat it into the yolk mixture on low speed, scraping down the bowl. Do not overbeat or the mixture will curdle.

With clean bowl and beaters, beat the egg whites to soft peaks. Stir 1/4 into the mascarpone mixture. Fold in the remaining 3/4. Choose a large straight-sided dish, such as a soufflé dish to assemble the Tiramsu in.

Cut the almond cake into 16 fingers by cutting in half crosswise, then lengthwise. Cut each half crosswise into 8 fingers. Combine the rum and coffee in a shallow dish. Place the cocoa in a sieve over a bowl.

Sprinkle the bottom of the dish lightly with cocoa. Quickly dip a few of the fingers into the coffee mixture and line the bottom of the dish. Do not get them too wet or your tiramisu will be runny. Spread on 1/4 of the mascarpone mixture and dust the top with cocoa. Repeat the process 2-3 times so you have 3-4 layers. End with a sprinkling of cocoa. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
