My Bulletproof Tiramisu Treat

I’ve been having cravings lately for a delicious tiramisu (one of my favourite desserts) and decided I should attempt to make a LCHF version myself.

I’m extremely pleased to say it was a roaring success!

For those playing at home, here’s how I did it…..

First let’s start with the LCHF Sponge Cake
Ingredients
• 6 Organic Eggs (separated)
• 50gm softened grass fed butter
• 2 tablespoons xylitol
• 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (I make my own infusing half a dozen of split vanilla beans in a bottle of vodka.)
• 1/3 cup Almond Meal
• 1/3 cup Coconut Flour
• 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
• 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
• pinch of salt

Method
Preheat oven to 170°c.

Cream xylitol, butter and egg yolks in a mixer until light and fluffy, add all other ingredients except the egg whites and mix till combined.

In a clean bowl whip egg whites until they form soft peaks. Next fold 1/3 off the egg whites into the batter, then repeat this step two more times till all ingredients are combined. Be careful not to knock the air out of the egg whites.

Place batter into a lined, greased cake tin (mine was approx. 12cm x 20cm) and bake in oven for 25-30mins.

You can see how light the sponge turned out… Perfect to absorb all those decadent upgraded coffee and Kahlúa flavours.

So to creating the Bulletproof Tiramisu.
I made 1 cup of strong Upgraded Bulletproof Coffee and set aside to cool. Next I whipped 125ml of pure cream until nearly whipped. To this I added 250ml Mascarpone Cheese, a splash of Kahlúa, 50ml of the cooled coffee, a few drops of liquid stevia, a cap full of MCT Oil, and a little vanilla then I whipped til combined.

All that’s left to do then is assemble. I sliced the sponge cake into 1cm thick fingers, dipped them one-by-one into the coffee (which I also added a splash of Kahlúa to) and simply layered the fingers alternately with the cream mix and placed them into mason jars. Topped with grated dark chocolate and refrigerated for a day to let the flavours combine and infuse.

Makes 6 serves.

    1. Not sure exactly Shannon 🙂 I don’t really worry about calculating the carbs out. I just eat low carb foods/ingredients… Eat when hungry, stop when full and that works for me. Main carbs would have come from the Kahlua which would be around 5gms per serve. I just think of it as a treat and a lower carb version to kill a craving 🙂

  1. So inspired by your blog. An as for this recipe! Tiramisu is my all time favourite. I will be trying this. Thankyou!

  2. So glad to see you re not into all this carb counting etc. The people on these LCHF sites are obsessed with it – I began to feel I was nt doing things correctly. You ve encouraged me again ! Love your site – actually my fav of all the LCHF sites but would love you to post more often !

    1. Thanks Tanya 😃

      I would love to post more just a bit time poor at the moment. I don’t think personally there’s a big need to ‘count carbs’. Just be conscious of what foods you’re eating (only choosing low carb ingredients in the first place). If weight loss slows lower carb intake. Simple.

  3. You are crazy good! I’m reading, with my jaw hanging open ! Omg!!!!!
    Where do I get xylitol and MT oil please in Australia? Eg – health food shop?
    Many thanks
