Eggless Berry Tiramisu


For this month Eggless Backing we got an interesting challenge, need to thank Gayathri and Sowmya for choosing tiramisu. Instead of mascarpone cheese I have tried this with cream cheese. For soaking used berry sauce, came across this recipe from here. Since I used cake flour the biscuits turned very soft and almonds gave a crunchy feel for this berry Tiramisu.

Ingredients:


Cake flour
1 cup
Sugar
2 Tbsp
Unsalted butter
¾ cup
Coarsely ground almonds
¼ cup
Vanilla extract
½ tsp
 
 
 

 

Directions:

  1. Mix all the ingredients and add ground nuts finally and mix until it blends well.
  2. Transfer the batter to piping bag with a ¾ inch round tip or cut the edge.
  3. Pipe the fingers about 3 inches long at one inch intervals on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 – 40 minutes or until slight brown at 300° F.
  5. Allow it to cool for 5 minutes and transfer to airtight container until you need.
 

Ingredients for Berry sauce and Cream Mixture:

 
Mixed berry
1 cup
Brown sugar
2 – 3 Tbsp
Lemon juice
½ medium size
Cream Cheese
4 oz
Whipped Cream
1 cup
Vanilla extract
2 drops
Sugar
3 Tbsp
 
 
 

 

Directions:

  • Heat a sauce pan, add berries, lemon juice and brown sugar stir until brown sugar blends and dissolve. When it start to boil turn off the stove and allow it to cool.
  • After it’s cooled, drain the sauce using a spoon. Warm it lightly.
 

  • Mean time in a large bowl, add cream cheese, sugar and vanilla extract and mix well.
  • Finally add whipped cream and mix gentle until it blends well.
  • Soak the lady fingers in warm berry sauce and arrange in the dish, then top it with cream cheese mixture until its covered (like a thick coating), next top it with berry mixture.
  • Repeat the process until you reach the top of the dish.
  • Refrigerate for about 4 – 6 hours. After it sets cut and serve.
