Keto Low Carb Tiramisu is made of creamy mascarpone mousse layered with sponge cake dipped in espresso. This recipe uses keto sponge cake, and erythritol to sweeten the mascarpone filling (plus a little bit of rum).
Well, how did today’s recipe sit with you? I enjoyed sharing it. I’d definitely like to make it myself!

Clearly, there are many diet plans in the world. If you’re like me, you’re probably overwhelmed by all of the options.
I believe that the moment you’ve decided on a particular diet, and it’s time to start prepping weight loss meals, sticking to your chosen diet is of paramount importance. Straying from your original chosen plan may very well lead to failure. You could very well wind up starting all over again.
It’s really a good idea to build up a diet-focused recipe library on your computer or device. So if you’ve chosen the ketogenic diet as your weight loss method, for example, then you ONLY want those types of recipes in your library… and nothing else.
Know what I mean?
Hopping from one diet to the next is certainly something that I’ve done in the past. Why did I do this? Only one reason…
On low-sugar, you crave sugar. On low-calorie, you crave calories. It’s always super tempting to dabble. They say it’s healthy, after all. So it should be okay, right? And let’s make no mistake about it… Food videos are, in many instances, quite knee-weakening. 😉
Sticking to the plan long-term is perhaps the most important component of dieting. At the end of the day, eating healthy foods and not going into a crazy caloric surplus may be enough to help you reach your goals.
Makes sense. The fat should come right off if you control what and how much you eat and drink. Raising your activity levels will also prove beneficial (obviously).
You’ll probably recognize this as standard, conventional wisdom. And it probably has that designation for a reason!
Not all diets are calorically restrictive though. With some diets, macro-nutrient ratios are more important than calories consumed. And it’s generally not advised to mess around with those, if you’re trying to maximize your weight loss.
Stick to the plan. Give yourself a fighting chance!

Yield: 8 servings / one 8x8x2″ container
Serving size: 2/3 cup (150ml)
1 batch of keto sponge cake OR 4-5 keto vanilla mug cakes
8 tablespoons (84g) powdered erythritol OR xylitol
4 large egg white (~120g)
4 large egg yolk (~80g)
1 cup (124ml) espresso
2 Tb. (30ml) rum OR other keto-friendly alcohol
1.5 cups (12oz / 340g) mascarpone OR cream cheese
(optional) 1 tsp. vanilla
(optional) 1/2 ts salt
1. Bake the keto sponge cake according to the directions but leave out the butter, OR cook your mug cakes according to the directions, cutting the butter in half but not fully omitting it. Once baked, dehydrate in the oven at 100F/38C or lower until the sponge cake is mostly or fully dried out. (this is so they will better absorb the espresso later)
2. In a bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy, then add half of the erythritol (2 tbs.) and continue whipping until it turns into a shiny meringue and reaches soft peaks.
3. Without cleaning the whisk/beaters, in a separate bowl beat together the egg yolks, salt and remaining erythritol until creamy and pale yellow.
4. Add the mascarpone to the egg yolk mixture and mix well to combine, then add the vanilla and half of the rum. Once this mixture is smooth, gently fold in the meringue to combine.
5. Mix the remaining rum into the espresso, then dip thin slices/pieces of your dried sponge cake briefly in the espresso mixture so that only half of the sponge cake is soaked, then place it in your glass or container of choice. Continue doing this until you have made a layer over the bottom of your container.
6. Next, spoon over a similarly thick layer of mascarpone cream, tapping the container to even out the surface of the cream.
7. Continue layering espresso-soaked sponge cake and mascarpone cream until you have used up the sponge cakes, making sure that the top layer is mascarpone cream. Cover the container(s) with cling film or some similar cover and refrigerate the dessert for a minimum of 4 hours, ideally overnight.
8. Once the tiramisu has chilled, dust it with a VERY light cover of cocoa powder for decoration (optional) before serving.
