Tiramisu with Yogurt Cream Cheese

Tiramisu with Yogurt Cream Cheese

This is a healthy tiramisu made with Greek-style yogurt that is easily as delicious as any normal cream cheese version.

Ingredients: one 18 x 8 x 6 cm pound cake mold

500 g (200 g when strained)
Egg yolk
Granulated sugar
60-70 g
Heavy cream (low-fat is fine)
200 ml
★Espresso or strong coffee
50 ml
★Coffee liqueur or rum
1 tablespoon
Cocoa powder (I used Van Houten brand pure cocoa)
as needed
Castella or sponge cake
2 slices, cut to the size of your container


1. Combine the ★ ingredients to create a syrup. Line the bottom of the pound cake tray with sponge and brush half of the syrup over the top.
2. Add the Greek-style yogurt to a bowl and beat it with a whisk. Add the egg yolks to a separate bowl and beat together with the sugar until fluffy and pale.
3. Mix the egg and sugar into the yogurt a little bit at a time.
4. Whip the heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks then mix it into the main mixture in 2-3 batches.
5. Pour half of the cream mixture into the pound cake tray, followed by the remaining sponge, remaining syrup, then remaining cream.
6. Leave the tiramisu to chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Sift some cocoa powder over the top and cut into your desired size to serve.
7. If you make this tiramisu in a pound cake tray you should have a bit of cream left over. Try making a small and cute tiramisu in a cocotte or similar.

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried using Greek-style yogurt instead of the more standard cream cheese to make tiramisu.
