This Vegan Tiramisu has fluffy layers consisting of a homemade sponge cake and  a soft cream made from vegan yogurt and tofu: it’s simple and it’s delicious! It is served cold and it is adored for its creaminess and bitter sweet taste. The perfect mixture of contrasting flavors in each layer makes this dessert a true delight. Throughout centuries, Tiramisu has been changed and interpreted in many different ways – and this version is completely cheese-free, nut-free and egg-free.
