Tiramisu

Tiramisu used to be my favourite dessert but I never attempted at making a vegan version of it. I have tried several vegan tiramisu's and so I decided to create one myself. This tiramisu is also pretty healthy since the cake is made with whole wheat flour and sweetened with coconut sugar, and the crème is simply made with cashews and silken tofu. The best part: it feels like a decadent dessert and doesn't taste ''healthy'' at all!

Ingredients (Serves 8-10) Prep time: 60 minutes (+ 1 night in the fridge)

Cake

  • 2 cups wholewheat flour

  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup soy milk + 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup almond oil (or any other oil)

''Mascarpone''

  • 1 1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked

  • 200 grams silken tofu

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Other

  • 300 ml espresso

  • 3-4 tablespoons marsala wine (optional)

  • Cocoa powder for dusting on top

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees Celsius (350 Fahrenheit).

  2. Combine the soy milk and apple cider vinegar and set aside.

  3. Combine the wholewheat flour, coconut sugar, baking powder and salt.

  4. Add the oil, soy milk and vanilla extract and combine until smooth.

  5. Pour the batter into an oiled square baking dish and bake for 40 minutes. Let cool down completely.

  6. In the meanwhile you can start making the mascarpone. Simply blend the ingredients until smooth and place it into the fridge to firm.

  7. When the cake has completely cooled down, cut halfway horizontally, and into 7 pieces vertically. Then cut into half horizontally again. In total you should have 28 cake sticks, 14 for each layer.

  8. Soak each cake stick into the coffee. If you want to add the marsala wine you should combine that with the coffee beforehand.

  9. Now it's time to assemble the tiramisu. First, add a layer of cake sticks. Spread a layer of mascarpone on top. Then add another layer of cake sticks. Proceed to add another layer of mascarpone. Place into the fridge overnight.

  10. Before serving, dust the cocoa powder on top.

  11. Enjoy!
