ingredients

  • 2 medium egg yolks*
  • 3 level tbsp sweetener
  • Few drops of vanilla essence
  • 400g plain quark
  • 12 sponge fingers
  • 2 tsp instant coffee dissolved in 2 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp brandy
  • 150g fat-free natural fromage frais
  • 6 chocolate-coated coffee beans
  • 2 level tsp cocoa powder

method

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks and 2 tbsp sweetener together until thick and creamy. Add the vanilla essence and 2 tbsp quark and whisk in gently. Gradually whisk in the remaining quark to form a smooth cream.
  2. Break the sponge fingers in half and place them in a shallow dish. Mix the coffee and brandy together and drizzle over the sponge fingers, mixing them gently to coat in the liquid.
  3. Divide half of the sponge fingers between 6 small serving glasses, top with half of the quark mixture, then with the rest of the sponge fingers and a second layer of quark. Chill for 30 minutes.
  4. Sweeten the fromage frais with the remaining sweetener and spoon on top of each glass. Decorate each tiramisu with a chocolate-coated coffee bean and dust evenly with cocoa before serving.

Tip: *Current government guidelines advise that pregnant women, the elderly, babies and toddlers have eggs marked with the British Lion stamp if eating them raw or partially cooked.
