Tiramisu recipe

A sumptuous but somehow low-calorie Italian dessert that'll stun your guests.

Serves 4

Takes 20 minutes to make, plus cooling and chilling


  • 2 tsp espresso coffee powder
  • 1 tbsp coffee liqueur
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 250g tub quark (from the chiller cabinet)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g fat-free vanilla yogurt
  • 10 sponge fingers
  • Cocoa powder, for dusting


How to make tiramisu

1. Stir the coffee into 50ml boiling water in a bowl, then cool. Stir in the liqueur and 1 tablespoon maple syrup.

2. In another bowl, beat the quark, vanilla and remaining maple syrup until smooth. Stir in the yogurt.

3. Break the sponge fingers in half. Dip 2 pieces briefly into the coffee syrup and put in a wine glass or a shallow dessert glass. Repeat with 3 more glasses. Spoon over some of the quark mixture, then repeat the layers with the remaining ingredients, using 3 sponge finger halves per glass for the second layer. Place the glasses on a tray and chill for 1 hour.

4. Dust the desserts with a little cocoa powder to serve.
