Eggless Low Fat Tiramisu with the Daring Bakers

The February Daring Bakers Challenge was Tiramisu, a dessert I have always been partial to. Coffee is not a drink that ranks high on my list of preferred beverages. I never really enjoyed it and its never the first drink that comes to mind when I am looking for refershment. Yet I love the taste of lightly sweetened coffee in milk desserts, and chocolates!! And for that reason, Tiramisu is well-loved. And I was delighted to experiment with a low fat, eggless version of the same for this challenge.

I made eggless Savoiardi/ Ladyfinger Biscuits, soaked them in diluted and warmed Kahlua, and made the cream part with a combuination of strained Greek yogurt, one teaspoon of icing sugar, and 1/2 cup fat free cool whip. Layered the dessert, chilled it and sprinkled with cocoa powder - and served it with herbal tea!! Absolutely delicious, guilt-free, and ever so repeatable.

As I am travelling at present, I will be able to post the photograph as soon as I am back home.Well, I am back home and over the jet lag!! At least I think that I am over the jet lag :) Here's my photograph of Tiramisu.

Post Script: The February 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen and Deeba of Passionate About Baking. They chose Tiramisu as the challenge for the month. Their challenge recipe is based on recipes from The Washington Post, Cordon Bleu at Home and Baking Obsession.

  1. Tiramisu! It's eggless and low-fat, does it taste distinctively different than the normal ones? tiramisu is just one of my guilty pleasures! but i think its the fat that makes it so yummy, haha

  2. Amy,
    Thanks for stopping by!! I adore the original tiramisu too!! But you'd be surprised at how delicious this version tastes. Greek yogurt is wonderful as a substitute for rich custards and creams :)Hope you will give my recipe a try!!
