It's true that you know who your true friends are when you are in trouble. Recently I really needed the help and support of friends and I'm pleased that one in particular came to my rescue. She was a star and I am so grateful for her help. Of course my way of saying thank you is to bake a cake but she had recently started weight watchers and told me (jokingly I hope!) that part of the reason was my bakes!!
Undeterred, I looked up a recipe on weight watchers and came across this coffee tiramisu cake which has 4 weight watcher points per serving. I ended up having a slice with her when I delivered the cake but I'm afraid I don't have a picture of the slice. What I can say is that the cake is quite tasty for a fatless sponge. This is far better than my previous attempt at a low fat chocolate mocha cake. If you or your friends are on a diet, I highly recommend this for a healthy treat! Just to be clear my friend was very pleased to receive the cake and no I do not intentionally sabotage people's diets! :)
I'm sending this along to AlphaBakes hosted by myself this month and co-hosted by Caroline from Caroline Makes as the letter is T for tiramisu. I promise it was a total coincidence - my aim was to find a delicious low fat recipe that uses regular ingredients. I do wonder how they got the height of the cake in their photo - either a very small tin or a different recipe!
