Quick Tiramisu

March 12, 2009  •  Desserts,

So sorry I’ve been away from the blog for a couple of days – busy with kids, parents, cooking classes, article deadlines, etc. But the good news is that I photographed things while I was working on all this so am prepared to share a few recipes, starting with this simple version of a sort of mock quick tiramisu that I made for the ladies in my Operation Frontline Eating Right class at Tooley Hall on Wednesday. They had requested a healthier version of the classic which is loaded with cream and eggs – this lightened recipe is compliments of OFL.
Start by beating together 1 package of light cream cheese with 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup chocolate syrup.

Cut a 9 x 5 inch loaf of angel food cake into slabs and line the bottom of a square baking pan with half of the slices. (I was making a double recipe so this is a larger pan.)

Next fold in gently 1 container of light or nonfat whipped topping…

…until it is totally combined like this:

Next 1/2 cup prepared coffee over the angel food cake…

…and then spread 1/2 half of the creamy chocolate mixture over the top. Add another layer, beginning with angel food cake, then coffee, and finishing it with the remaining chocolate mixture. Let it sit in the refrigerator for 1-12 hours and sprinkle with cocoa powder through a strainer just before serving. Enjoy!
