Chai Tiramisu

Published on May 15, 2009 by   ·   51 Comments Pin It

This Chai Tiramisu serves 12, but you may need to eat the entire thing yourself, depending on where you are in your Menstrual cycle.   If there is something better than sex, we think we’ve found it in this recipe. Jason Wyrick, the executive Chef and publisher of The Vegan Culinary Experience (the world’s only vegan culinary magazine) graciously shared his prowess in the baking arena with us.


The Ladyfingers::

  • 2 cups of whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 tbsp. of baking powder
  • ¼ cup of finely ground turbinado sugar
  • ¼ tsp. of salt
  • 2 servings of prepared EnerG Egg Replacer
  • 1 cup of soy creamer
  • ¾ cup of sweet agave nectar
  • 2 tbsp. of canola oil

The Sweet Cream::

  • 1 1/2 cups of soy cream cheese
  • 8 oz. of firm silken tofu
  • 1/2 cup of sweet agave nectar
  • 1/2 cup of finely ground turbinado sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. of agar agar
  • ¼ cup of soy creamer

The Chai::

  • 2 cups of strongly brewed black masala chai

The Garnish::

  • 1/2 tsp. of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. of ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp. of ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp. of ground fennel seeds
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. of cocoa powder


Time to Prepare: 2 hours (includes 1hour and 30 minutes of time for the ingredients to set)

Making the Sweet Cream::
Whip all of the sweet cream ingredients together in a food processor until they are thoroughly combined. strong. Simmer this on a medium heat for 5 minutes. Chill it for at least an hour.

Making the Ladyfingers::

Combine the dry ingredients together. Prepare the EnerG Egg Replacer in the ladyfinger section. Mix this with all the wet ingredients. Fold the wet ingredients into the dry mix. Load a pastry bag with the batter. Pipe the batter into 3″ long, 1″ wide cookies, leaving about a 1″ space between each cookie. Bake these on 350 degrees for 18 minutes. Option: Do not pipe the batter, but fill a rectangular cake pan with the batter about 1″ high and bake the cake for 25 minutes.

Assembling the Tiramisu::

Brew the chai tea. Mix the spices together and set them aside. Dunk each ladyfinger in the chai tea for about 3 seconds. Line the bottom of a baking dish with the lady fingers. Lightly brush them with a little chai. Spread about 1/2″ of the sweet cream on top of the lady fingers. Repeat this process, making another layer of lady fingers and sweet cream. Sprinkle the spice mix over the top layer of sweet cream. Chill the tiramisu for at least 30 minutes.

Kitchen Equipment

  • 3 Mixing Bowls
  • 1 Small Mixing Bowl for the egg replacer
  • 1 Small Mixing Bowl for the spice mix
  • Whisk
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Pastry Bag
  • Sifter
  • Measuring Cup
  • Measuring Spoon
  • Spatula
  • Tea Pot
  • Tea Ball
  • Cup to brew the tea
  • Food Processor


Lay a cinnamon stick on top of the plated tiramisu and garnish the edge of the plate with a bit of extra cinnamon and cardamom and the top of the tiramisu with a few chocolate chips or cacao nibs.

Time Management

Start the sweet cream before making the ladyfingers because the sweet cream should finish chilling about ten minutes after the ladyfingers come out of the oven.   Of course, you can save about twenty minutes of labor and a lot of clean-up by doing the cake instead of the ladyfingers.

Where to Shop

Agave nectar can be purchased at Sprouts, Whole Foods, Central Market, Trader Joe’s, and most other stores that cater to vegetarians.   The egg replacer, soy creamer, and soy cream cheese can also be purchased at most of these stores.  Agar agar can be purchased at Whole Foods and most Asian markets, and will be markedly less expensive at an Asian market.   Silken tofu is the kind that comes in the box is readily available. The rest of the ingredients should be available on most baking aisles.   Approximate cost per serving is $1.00.

How It Works

The ladyfinger recipe is a basic sponge cake recipe with extra flour and cooked long enough to become a cookie instead of a cake.   For the sweet cream, the fat of the soy cream cheese carries most of the flavor as well as giving the cream a flavor reminiscent of mascarpone cheese.   The tofu binds everything together and the agave nectar and soy creamer add sweetness while keeping the cream from becoming too dense.   The agar agar provides the final binder, ensuring that the sweet cream has a little stiffness to it.   The spice mix added to the top is a powdered mix of basic masala chai spices.

Chef’s Notes

I’m torn between the traditional coffee and rum tiramisu and the chai tiramisu as to which is my favorite!

Interesting Facts

The Italian name for ladyfingers is savoiardi. Tiramisu is a recent invention in the culinary world, probably dating from the early 1970s.
