Low-fat tiramisu recipe

8 trifle sponges, about 180g
1 tbsp instant espresso coffee powder
2 tbsp Tia Maria
2 x 250g tubs quark (virtually fat-free soft cheese)
2 tbsp golden caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp good-quality cocoa powder
18 mixed chocolate-covered coffee beans, chopped to serve

1. Cut the sponge into fingers and lay half in a narrow, deep glass serving dish
(16 x 8cm deep; 1.4 litre capacity).
2. In a small bowl, mix the coffee powder with 2 tablespoons of hot water, then stir in the Tia Maria. Drizzle half of this all over the sponge and set aside.
3. Put the quark, sugar and vanilla extract in a large bowl and mix together. Spoon half over the sponge, levelling the surface. Arrange the remaining sponge on top and drizzle with the remaining coffee liquid. Top with the remaining quark mixture – peak the surface by dragging the back of the spoon across it. Chill for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
4. Use a small sieve to lightly dust cocoa powder over the tiramisu. Scatter over the chocolate-covered coffee beans to serve.
