I must apologize for the slight delay in this recipe. In my defense, I do have a very good reason for leaving you all hanging after giving you the hint in my previous post that I was making tiramisu.
The reason being my younger sister’s confirmation. It is incredibly common to have a confirmation in Norway, either through the church or the Norwegian Humanist Association. Since my sister is also a vegan (yay), she decided that she wished for all the food for the feast after the ceremony to be made from scratch. That sentence is just music to my ears. However it does call for a lot of work on my part. I have spent all of the last two days cooking and preparing, and the same is going to be on the agenda for today. Luckily I am an early riser, so I have the time to publish this before getting to work.
Anyways, this is one of the planned desserts for the party, along with Carrot Cake, Double Layer Chocolate Cake, Molten Lava Cake and some various sweet treats. For the main courses we have decided on making a wide range of dishes, such as Vegetable Lasagna, Potato Salad, Curry Soup, Green Pea Soup, and then my sister is making a vegan quiche. All in all we are 25 people, which is the largest amount of people I have ever cooked for. Like you can probably imagine, this requires quite a lot of work!
Hopefully you can forgive me for the delay and enjoy this recipe!
Sinless Gluten-Free Vegan Tiramisu
makes 1 small pan
- 8-12 homemade ladyfingers (depending on size)
- 1 cup freshly brewed coffee
- 2 tbsp amaretto
- 2 x whipped coconut cream
- 1/2 cup raw cashews
- 1/2 cup dates
- 2 tbsp coffee
- 2 tbsp amaretto
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- shredded dark chocolate
- cacao powder
1. Start by making the ladyfingers according to said recipe. This whole recipe makes only a small tiramisu cake, so you only need about 8-12 biscuits (depending on size).
2. Stir together the dipping sauce. Grab each ladyfinger one by one and soak them in the coffee. Unlike traditional ladyfingers, which only needs to be soaked for a couple of seconds, these should be allowed to soak for about 1 minute. Do not worry, they will not become mushy!
3. Place all the cream layer ingredients, except for the whipped cream, in a food processor and run until completely smooth. Have the whipped coconut cream prepared in another bowl before stirring in the mixture.
4. Now comes the fun part. Grab a baking dish and line it with either parchment or plastic wrap paper. Start by making a bottom layer using half of the soaked ladyfingers. Add a thorough layer of the cream and smooth it down properly using a spatula. Take the remaining ladyfingers and place them on top, creating a second layer. Finish off with the remaining cream. Place this in the refrigerator overnight.
5. Garnish before serving with a dusting of cacao powder and optionally some shredded dark chocolate. Then simply grab the parchment/plastic wrap to lift it out of the pan, slice it up and enjoy. All in all, this makes about 8 squares.
