    Serves: 6 

    • 720ml strong freshly brewed black coffee
    • 6 tablespoons Amaretto liqueur
    • 2 eggs, separated
    • 5 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 340g (1½ tubs) Tofutti® Creamy Smooth Original (plain)
    • 250ml soya cream
    • 200g packet sponge fingers
    • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar (optional)
    • cocoa powder to dust

    Prep:30min  ›  Extra time:2hr chilling  ›  Ready in:2hr30min 

    1. Place the coffee in a bowl and allow to cool. When cooled, add 3 tablespoons Amaretto and put to one side.
    2. In a separate bowl beat the egg yolks and sugar until the mixture is thick and pale.
    3. Mix together the Tofutti and soya cream. Beat into the egg yolk and sugar mixture, preferably using an electric mixer.
    4. In another bowl whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Use the cream of tartar to ensure they whip up (also ensure the bowl is clean and free of grease to start with).
    5. Fold the egg whites into the egg yolk/cream mixture quickly but gently. If you are using an electric mixer, you can use that to mix the two mixtures together on a slow setting. Mix or fold in the rest of the Amaretto, 1 tablespoon at a time.
    6. Submerge each sponge finger into the coffee and Amaretto mixture for about 1 second. Shake off the excess. Use half of the packet (100g) to layer the base of a 4cm (2 in) deep rectangular ceramic dish.
    7. Cover the layer of sponge fingers with half of the creamy mixture. Dust the top with cocoa powder. Repeat the process in step 6 with the remainder of the packet of sponge fingers.
    8. Cover the second layer of sponge fingers with the rest of the creamy mixture. Smooth the surface and dust with cocoa powder.
    9. Refrigerate for 2 hours or preferably overnight.


    Use a metal beater to beat the egg yolks and sugar. Always ensure the eggs are fresh for this recipe.

    WOW!!! How lovely this was...Been unable to tolerate milk products for so many years so denied myself Tiramisu. Am overseas so could not locate any Tofutti so used firm silken tofu instead. Had to really blend it to get rid of miniscule grain type pieces but it was so worth it. Also cut down on the amount of soya cream as it looked a little runny & I did not think it would set. Actually thought of adding Agar Agar but decided against it. Anyway, I digress. It was amazing. Really tasty and what's more my other half who is a devout carnivore & milk drinker said how lush it was. I have not & will not tell him otherwise he will make some excuse not to eat it...I will def make again & also pass this on to my sister as she has been denying herself of this wonderful dessert for to long. A BIG thank you Sharon ;o)))  -  27 May 2017
