👨🏿🍳How to make Easy Tiramisu Recipe for two people:
For the biscuit base:
1.) Add almond flour to a dry skillet and toast it over medium heat until golden brown. (2-3 minutes)
3.) Add in butter and coffee, mix until thoroughly combined. Spoon it evenly into 2 serving glasses. Let it chill in the fridge while you make the tiramisu (and don’t worry if it seems soggy; it’s normal at this stage!).
The Keto Tiramisu Filling:
4.) Take a small bowl, add in vanilla, Marsala, sweetener, and Mascarpone, and mix them well.
5.) In a medium bowl, add heavy cream and beat it with an electric beater until it’s fluffy. Now gently fold the above Mascarpone mixture into the heavy whipped cream.
I love this hand mixer! It costs more than I wanted it to but it’s amazing.
6.) Transfer the tiramisu mixture into prepared serving glasses and freeze for 30 minutes or chill in the refrigerator for 8 hours. Generously dust with cocoa powder and serve.
This is the perfect classy after dinner treat. But it’s even even better if you’re curled up on the couch watching some Netflix after a long frenzied week.
📋Tips & FAQ’s:
What alcohol is in tiramisu? Can I skip it?
Tiramisu traditionally contains Marsala wine, but if you want to substitute it, you can also go with brandy or rum.
However, if you want to prepare non-alcoholic tiramisu, you can skip it. It’s optional, and only used for flavor.
Can I use normal coffee for tiramisu?
Espresso is a signature component in tiramisu.
However, If you don’t want to use espresso you can use any strongly brewed coffee.
But I recommend you to go with espresso if you can to get the full taste of low carb tiramisu.
