Tonight is cooking club with my gals! You remember it from here. Tonight's theme is Italian and I am in charge of dessert. What better Italian dessert is there besides Tiramisu? Gelato is up there but I sure has heck am not making gelato! Tiramisu is so rich and creamy and yummy and sinful! I was on a search of a lower fat/lower calorie version and I think I found it. This recipe is originally from Weight Watchers. Sorry for the lack of pictures lately!


The Stuff:
12oz angel food cake
8oz ff cream cheese, softened
4oz light cream cheese, softened 
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1 oz semisweet chocolate, finely grated (I used Bakers)
1 cup brewed espresso or strong coffee
The How To:
  • With a serrated knife cut angel food cake into 12 pieces, I cut it in half, then in half again then each of the four pieces were cut into 3rds, set aside
  • Use a mixer to blend cheeses, sugar and extract
  • In a small bowl mix chocolate and cocoa
  • In a wide, shallow dish pour in coffee
  • Dip each piece of cake into coffee and flip to coat completely
  • Cover the bottom of a round pie pan with 6 slices of the coffee soaked cake, break it up and stretch and move so there is no part of the pan showing and then pat it down so its even
  • Spread half of the cream cheese mixture on top
  • Sprinkle with half of the chocolate and cocoa mixture
  • Do this once more and finishing with the chocolate and cocoa mixture
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours
  • Cut into 12 pieces
