I created a lighter version of Tiramisu that is quick and easy through the creative use of a few convenience items.

  • Servings: 16


1 Prepared Angel Food Cake, 8-10"
3/ cup Strong Black Coffee, at room temperature
¼ cup Coffee Liqueur
8 oz pkg Reduced Fat Block Style Cream Cheese, softened
¾ cup Powdered Sugar, divided
3 Tbsp Coffee Liqueur
1 Tbsp Instant Espresso or Coffee Powder
1 Container (8 Oz) Frozen Light Whipped Topping, thawed
¼ cup Fat Free or Sugar Free Fudge Ice Cream Topping
1 Tbsp Coffee Liqueur


Using a serrated knife, cut angel food cake horizontally into 3 layers. Place 1 cake layer on a serving platter then set other layers aside on a flat work surface. In a small bowl, combine coffee and 1/4 cup coffee liqueur. With a long tined fork or skewers, poke holes all over all three layers. Drizzle mixture evenly over tops of all three layers and let mixture soak into holes.


In bowl of an electric mixer, cream together cream cheese, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and 3 tablespoons coffee liqueur until blended and smooth. Spread top of cake layer that is on serving platter with half of filling mixture. Place a second cake layer on top of first layer and spread top with remaining filling. Place third cake layer on top of second cake layer.


In a small bowl, stir together remaining powdered sugar with instant espresso. Fold mixture into whipped topping just until blended. Frost entire cake with whipped topping mixture. Chill cake at least 2 hours.

Before serving, stir together fudge ice cream topping and coffee liqueur. Drizzle over chilled cake. Using a serrated knife, cut cake into 16 servings.
