Gluten-free tiramisu with strawberries
In the past weeks, I have already shared my struggles with making low FODMAP tiramisu with you. I already have shared two other tiramisu recipes on the blog: a recipe for classic tiramisu and a recipe for speculaas tiramisu.
For these recipes, I used to use the gluten-free lady fingers from Schär and lactose-free mascarpone and whipping cream from MinusL. When I wanted to make this low FODMAP and gluten-free tiramisu with strawberries,
I found out that the gluten-free lady fingers now contained sorbitol syrup and are therefore not low FODMAP anymore. And to make matters even worse: the lactose-free mascarpone was nowhere to be found. Not in the supermarkets, not online. Isn’t it crazy!
Because I really wanted to make this recipe, I had to come up with some alternatives. I bought normal mascarpone and whipping cream and made it low in lactose by using lactase drops.
And the gluten-free lady fingers? I simply baked them myself! That was so much easier than I had thought. You can find the recipe for the gluten-free lady fingers in this blog.
Edit 2021: in 2021 I checked the gluten-free ladyfingers from Schär again and they were low FODMAP again. So you could use them for this recipe. Just make sure to check the ingredient list to make sure no high FODMAP ingredients are added.
I actually am not a big fan of tiramisu. Here in the Netherlands, everybody gets completely excited when they see tiramisu on the menu in a restaurant, but I never found it so special.
Mushy lady fingers, cacao, coffee and that greasy mascarpone. Nah, that really didn’t make me happy. Until I started to make my own tiramisu, then I suddenly started to appreciate it more!
I really find this fresh gluten-free tiramisu with strawberries wonderful. I think it is the tastiest tiramisu that I have ever eaten. I choose to not leave the tiramisu in the fridge too long, I took it out after about 1-1.5 hours instead of 3 or more.
When you do this, the lady fingers are still a bit more crunchy and I personally prefer that over soft and mushy. The mascarpone mixture will be a little less stiff when you do that, but that doesn’t bother me so much.
If you want to have a tiramisu that is stiff with soft lady vingers, I advise to leave it in the fridge for 3-4 hours.
I am a huge fan of my own recipe, haha! My boyfriend and I ate the entire dish of tiramisu by ourselves, so that tells you enough!
