A tiramisu recipe using cream cheese instead of mascarpone for a light and creamy consistency.

500g Philadelphia cream cheese

5 egg, separated

80g sugar

½ tsp vanilla extract

250ml coffee

1 pack of sponge fingers

Cocoa powder

Beat the egg yolks with the sugar, until frothy. Add the vanilla extract and the cream cheese and keep beating.

Whip the eggs whites until they form stiff peaks and fold into the cream cheese mix.

Dip a sponge biscuit in the coffee, and arrange in a medium rectangular dish. Make a full layer of soaked sponge biscuit and cover with half the cream.

Add another layer of soaked biscuit and pour the rest of the cream. Put in the fridge overnight.

Before serving, dust with cocoa powder to taste.
