Date Night Tiramisu

Another "metabolism miracle" friendly recipe, by me.

Cake:

6 eggs or 12 egg whites
1 cup splenda
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 T. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup coconut flour.

Beat eggs, beat in all ingredients and beat until batter is fluffy. Bake at 350 F. in a 9x6 pan, 20 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cake cool.

Set out 1 8 oz. package of neufchatel cheese to allow it to come to room temperature. Brew about a cup of double strength coffee (I used decaf).

Later, beat together:
8 oz. neufchatel cheese
1/2 of a 30 oz. container of part skim Ricotta cheese
1/2 cup splenda
1/2 tsp vanilla extract.

Cut cake in half to form two 9x6 inch layers. Soak each layer in half the coffee. Transfer bottom layer to original pan, and top with half the cheese mixture. Repeat layers. Sprinkle top with unsweetened cocoa powder through a sieve. Refrigerate. Top with whipped cream when ready to serve.

My favorite restaurant dessert. I made this to have at home after a date with my dearest husband, so I would not be tempted to order dessert at the restaurant.
