Keto Tiramisu

The King of Desserts

Tiramisu is my favourite dessert in the whole wide world. My wonderful wife decided to make a Keto Tiramisu for me on New Years Eve in 2015 and it was spectacular. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time but put it off because I also wanted to show you how to make the Mascarpone cheese from scratch and once that was off my bucket list, this recipe was inevitable. So please enjoy and share it around. Also learn to make Mascarpone cheese at home right here.

What’s not Tiramisu

I have seen so many abominations in my time being passed off as tiramisu. From people using sponge cake for the lady fingers and others using whipped cream to replace the eggs. However if you don’t eat eggs, you can always sub it with whipped cream, just don’t call it tiramisu, maybe call it tira-me-fooled. Anyway, bad jokes aside, I would love to know if you made this and what you thought of it. The 90 second almond bread I used is a quick fix but I’m sure in the future we can figure out Keto ladyfingers.

  1. Hey, have you ever tried the simple paleo pancakes with green plantain? I’ve always thought that they would make an excellent wholefood gf sub for lady fingers but I just haven’t had the time or the confidence to try yet. I’d love to know what you think if you try!

  2. Can you recommend a substitute for the whisky? I don’t do alcohol (other than extracts). Thanks!

  3. A real winner. I used a bit of Brandy which worked well (but has some sugar so was very light with it). So delicious, thank you for this!

    1. Yes you can. I use whiskey normally for the flavour aspect. Alternatively you can use a dark rum. You can even skip it completely.

  4. Absolutely amazing! I made it in a glass dish and layered it. Changes the macros, I know, but it legit tastes like traditional tiramisu!!! Thank you for the recipe!

  5. You may want to reconsider where you place your ads on your website. Totally missed the mascarpone part and now I have to reschedule doing this on another day. :/

  6. Hi Sahil! I wonder if you could give a ballpark amount of sweetener. I know you say “to taste” but what would be a good starting amount?

    1. Depends which sweetener you are using. Normally stevia it’s a few drops. With Swerve or something it’s about a tablespoon mayb and then go from there.

  7. I’ve done this recipe 4 times now (in less than 3 months) and all I can say is thank you! I LOOOOOOVE tiramisu and this one pleases keto and non-keto. I use about 3 tablespoons of lakanto for mine and up the whisky a bit 🙂 and it’s a total hit. thanks!

    1. I mean you can try but it’s not the same dessert then, you can possible use whipped cream instead of the eggs to try and mimic the texture. It should work to make a tasty dessert.

  8. Hi, I just made this recipe today – we have not tried it yet. After I took the 60ml of soaking liquid to put in with mascarpone etc it left very little and the keto bread was so thirsty that it soaked it all up in the first 3 pieces I threw in there. Is it a ‘soak’ or a quick dip? I made extra (I know that changes everything up) because there was none left for the rest of the bread. Can’t wait to try!
