Tiramisu

Alcohol, chocolate and coffee...need I say more?
I worked for Chef Levana Kirschenbaum for two years during college as her assistant to her cooking classes.  We made many wonderful dishes inspired from her Moroccan background.  Although this isn't Moroccan, it is still the best (non dairy) Tiramisu out there!  I made this for my sisters birthday party alongside frozen lemon meringue bars (recipe to come in the future). Big hit!! And it's kind of addicting...
Makes 10-12 Servings ( I doubled the recipe and put it in a 9 X 13 pan)

1 ¼ Lbs. Sponge Cake
1 Lb Silken Tofu
2 T. Oil
½ C. Sugar
1- 8 Oz. Container Tofu Cream Cheese
¼ C. Brandy or Rum
½ C. Coffee, made
8 Oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate, grated (I like Trader Joe's brand)  I grated it in a cuisnart and it grates better when the chocolate is frozen.)

Coarsely chopped chocolate
                                                                    Slice and Bon Apetite!

Preheat oven to 350. Slice the pound cake ½ inch thick and toast in the oven about 15 minutes, until light brown on all sides. Meanwhile,  In a food processor, process tofu with the oil and sugar until smooth.  Add the tofu cream cheese and process a few more seconds. Pour mixture into a bowl.  Mix coffee and brandy in a container. Line a long loaf pan with plastic wrap, letting sides overhang.  Line bottom completely with slices of toasted pound cake, arranged to fit tightly.


Pour half the coffee mixture evenly  over the cake. Pour half the cream cheese mixture over the cake.  Sprinkle half the grated chocolate over the cream cheese.  Repeat: cake, coffee, cream cheese, chocolate.  Cover the whole loaf with the plastic wrap.  Refrigerate a few hours until set.  Unmold and slice.

  2. Looks great, but I am confused! Is this Levana Kirschenbaum's recipe??

  3. Sorry, but i would like a bit of clarification. When you say you doubled the recipe, is this the recipe with the already doubled amounts that you used in a 9 x 13 pan or did you double these ingredients and amounts to come up with the 9 x 13 version? Thank you very much and Shabbat Shalom

    1. The recipe is not already doubled. It is for one loaf pan. If you double the recipe you can put it in a 9X13.
