Following our trip to Italy, we wanted to adapt the famous tiramisu recipe, this classic Italian coffee-based dessert, with local products and by simplifying the stages of execution. Here is what we offer:
- 2 François Lambert maple waffles
- 150g 5% Greek yogurt
- 150g cream cheese
- 100ml of Start-up coffee brewed then cooled or François Lambert cold brew coffee
- 50ml maple syrup (plus a little for serving)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Cocoa powder for sprinkling
In a medium bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, cream cheese, maple syrup and vanilla extract until smooth and combined.
Crumble the maple waffles into large pieces.
Quickly dip the waffle pieces into the cooled coffee.
Distribute the soaked waffle pieces at the bottom of 4 verrines or small serving bowls.
Spread a generous portion of the yogurt and cream cheese mixture over the waffle pieces in each verrine.
Sprinkle lightly with cocoa powder.
Drizzle with additional maple syrup if desired.
Serve immediately or refrigerate for 1-2 hours for a firmer consistency.
This is an express dessert, inspired by Italy but with a nice Quebec touch. Enjoy this delicious fusion of flavors!
