Happy Wednesday friends and welcome to another What I ate Wednesday Par-tay! I didn’t intend to share a recipe today but it IS tiramisu/coffee loaded week and today’s recipe is simply too good to share. 

Confession- I am actually the biggest goose out there. For the last couple of weeks, I’d been having trouble sleeping and could not pin point what it was. I hadn’t changed my coffee consumption and I was waking up at my standard earlier time. 

Then it hit me. I’d been trialling out a plethora of ‘tiramisu’ inspired recipes which were cocoa and espresso dense. These snack attacks would usually occur in the afternoons and as such, would result in sleepless nights. Oh well, the things you for for recipes. Before I share this delicious recipe, let’s see what else was eaten from last week!

WIAW

Breakfast- I had some errands to do in Manhattan so went early and set up camp in Pret a Manger. I ordered the California Club (I think) and it had turkey, avocado, a boiled egg and leaves. It was actually really disappointing and I added two packets of salt. It was also overpriced. I wanted to get the popcorn but remembered I have a recipe coming up this week and had leftovers. 

Lunch- Not going to lie, I ate a blueberry donut from Dunkin Donuts on my way home from the city. It wasn’t very satisfying and hence, no picture. I also snacked on one of the tiramisu cakes (the paleo version which I went overboard the the eggs and was like a fluffy sponge). 

Dinner- I went to a friend’s work event for a little bit and they had a buffet. I had steak, pesto salad and some leaves. I went back for more leaves because the dressing was probably made from HFCS and it was amazing. 

Dessert- Because recipes need taste testing, right? 

Okay, now let’s see the main event here- The healthy one minute tiramisu cake

I’ve been on a microwave cake kick lately as evidenced by this creation here. When I declared a week of tiramisu recipes, of course I had to flavour on with some zing coffee. This healthy 1 minute tiramisu cake is the perfect dessert or anytime snack which tastes amazing and is actually healthy for you. Clocking in at under 100 calories, not only is it naturally gluten free and sugar free, I also tested it successfully to cater for my vegan and paleo friends! Similar to the vanilla version, this tiramisu cake is so darn fluffy, you could…..um, eat it? 

A note though- For those familiar with baking/cooking with flax eggs, I’ve found they don’t come out as fluffy as when using egg whites like the standard version calls for. Furthermore, sometimes using a whole egg also makes it slightly more flat- Just an FYI! 

 

Make this healthy 1 minute tiramisu cake and add some zing before you sleep.

Ingredients

For the cake

For the optional 'tiramisu' sprinkles

Instructions

For the microwave version

  • In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • In a separate small bowl, combine the dairy free creamer, dairy free milk with the egg white (or flax egg) and whisk lightly. Add the mixture to the dry mixture and mix until just combined. Stir through bittersweet chunks.
  • Grease a large mug or deep bowl (I used a cereal bowl) generously and pour the batter in it and microwave for 50 seconds-2 minutes (Depending on brand and wattage).
  • Remove from bowl and enjoy!

For the oven version

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Grease a large ramekin with oil and set aside.
  • Follow directions as above and once ready, bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.

Notes

* You can use a whole egg but as mentioned earlier, it will be slightly more flat
** I used So delicious dairy free creamer
*** You may need more depending on what flour you use

    1. This looks so delicious. How do you come up with such amazing ideas? I will definitely have to try this with a flax egg and coconut cream.

    2. I haven’t been to a buffet in FOREVER! I would definitely be in pain leaving. I’m a “get my moneys worth” kinda gal. Cake in one minute is something of the heavens.

    3. Fluffy sponge….omg.
      Totally need to go back to the microwave kick too!! How did I forget about this gem in my kitchen? I normally just defrost everything in there, but hell yes, this sounds delicious. I probably skip the espresso(and take the cacao powder), cause let’s be honest, chicken on caffeine drug is a human punishment.

    4. Dude you’re on a tiramisu roll, and this mug cake looks delicious. Plus I love hoe easy it is. Total winner.
      But I have to give you a stern talking to: what’s up with that DD situation? No good my friend, no good. Just know that wou may or may not have been blacklisted by the paleo police. 😉

    5. That steak/pasta salad combo looks awesome. I would definitely have gone for seconds!

      Is it crazy that I’ve never made a mug cake…? I have so many “office kitchen hacks” that I use and I feel like I should add mug cake to the list.

    6. This would be a perfect dorm dessert! Ah, I am amazed with all the wonderful stuff you create. I’m a sucker for tiramisu. It is just a little piece of fluffy heaven 😉

    7. mmmm….buffet. It’s been a while! I need a good old Chinese buffet in my life soon, I think.

      As for caffeine consumption – i can drink a Monster at 3 am and crash out at 730 no problem – the joys of night shifts.

    8. You do know I am tapping my foot at you in “disgust” a little bit because of your lunch. However…. YOU KINDA made up for it by supplying me with this 1 minute recipe – and because um, how could I ever be mad at you?! lol
