Keto Tiramisu Recipe
This delicate and delicious Keto Tiramisu is a ketogenic version of the classic Italian dessert. The sponge cake made with almond flour is gently soaked in strong coffee, creating a base for the creamy and velvety mascarpone cream. Instead of sugar, erythritol is used, which still provides a sweet taste without affecting blood sugar levels. The prepared layers of sponge cake and cream are assembled together, and the whole dessert is chilled to allow the flavors to blend and the consistency to stabilize. After chilling, the Tiramisu is ready to be served, topped with cocoa powder, creating an elegant and tasty dish that satisfies your taste buds without compromising the principles of the ketogenic diet.
For the sponge cake:
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup erythritol (or another sugar substitute)
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
For the cream:
- 2 cups creamy mascarpone cheese
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup erythritol (or another sugar substitute)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee, chilled
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- Prepare the sponge cake: Preheat the oven to 180°C. Separate the egg whites from the yolks. Beat the egg whites with salt until stiff peaks form. Gradually add erythritol while continuing to mix. Then add the egg yolks and vanilla extract, and gently combine. In a separate bowl, combine almond flour and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently mix until a homogeneous batter is formed.
- Transfer the batter to a rectangular baking dish lined with parchment paper. Smooth the top. Bake the sponge cake for about 15-20 minutes, until golden and springy. Remove from the oven and let it cool.
- Prepare the cream: In a bowl, combine mascarpone cheese, heavy cream, erythritol, and vanilla extract. Beat the ingredients with a mixer until smooth.
- Slice the cooled sponge cake into rectangular pieces that will fit into serving glasses or a tiramisu dish.
- Prepare the soaking mixture for the sponge cake: In a small bowl, combine strong brewed coffee with 1 tablespoon of erythritol.
- Assemble the Tiramisu: Dip each piece of sponge cake into the coffee mixture, on both sides, for a moment to soak. Place the soaked sponge cake pieces at the bottom of serving glasses or a dish.
- Layer the mascarpone cream on top of the sponge cake. Repeat the layering process until all the ingredients are used, finishing with the cream.
- Dust the top of the Tiramisu with cocoa powder.
- Place the Tiramisu in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (preferably overnight) to chill and set.
- After chilling, the Tiramisu is ready to be served. You can garnish it with additional cocoa powder or whipped cream.
- Enjoy! This is a Tiramisu recipe that adheres to the principles of the ketogenic diet. Remember to adjust the ingredients to your preferences and dietary needs.
