Keto Tiramisu Sugar-Free Low Carb Recipe

Tiramisu is a well-known Italian cheesecake dessert with a delightful coffee flavor that’s combined with rum. It has two or three cake layers and sweet, creamy filling between them.

Obviously, traditional tiramisu is not keto or low carb, but with some tips and tricks, we transformed this treat into a low-carb and keto-friendly fantasy.

To make it sugar-free and keto-approved, we use erythritol as a keto sugar substitute. You can use other keto-friendly sweeteners that you prefer.

Mascarpone cheese is the hero of the original tiramisu. Since it is high in fats and low in carbs, we saved this ingredient to make its fantastic creamy filling.

How to

Preheat the oven to 350F.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix almond flour, sweetener, and baking powder. Add melted butter and mix again. Then add in eggs, one at a time. Use an electric mixer for beating.

Pour rum extract. Depending on how much you like the taste, you can put more or less. We added three teaspoons because we adore it. Make sure to beat everything until homogeneous.

Transfer the cake mixture into the lined pan with parchment paper. Use a spatula to smooth.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Once baked, let the cake cool completely.

While the cake is baking, prepare the filling.

In a small double boiler, beat egg yolks with sweetener. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 7-10 minutes. Stir constantly until the color is lighter than at the beginning.

Use an electric mixer to mix with mascarpone cheese or some other full-fat cream cheese. As we mention, the original recipe is made with mascarpone, but you can put some other cream cheese. 

Combine gelatin with water until it becomes thick. Combine with the filling.

We wanted to get three smaller tiramisu cakes, so we cut our baked cake into three stripes. Then we cut each strip into half to get thinner cake layers.

Place the first three layers on the parchment paper then spread half of the filling on top of them.

Cover the filling with three more stripes and press with fingers.

Add espresso or dark coffee into the second part of the filling and mix it with a spoon.
