Vegan Tiramisu Brownies (gluten-free)

What’s better than dessert?

How about 2 desserts in one? These Tiramisu Brownies are sure to be a crowd pleaser.  The Brownie is dense and fudge-y with an intense chocolatey flavor, and hint of coffee you can get from single brew coffee tea bags.  Only to be topped off with a creamy tofu “cheesecake” that will fool everyone.  Historical records state that Tiramisù originated in Treviso in 1800. It is said that this dessert was invented by a clever “maitresse” of a house of pleasure in the centre of Treviso.

  1. Hi so I made these today and they were really tasty but the tofu cheesecake part was so thin and not really like the picture? I used the same size pan as you, I’m just wondering what I might have done wrong? Is it meant to be 8oz of tofu or half of that? 🙂

    • Hello! I wish I could remember… I am so sorry this recipe was developed 5 years ago! I would suggest trying it with 8oz and taste it to see if you can still taste the other flavours. If not, then double the rest of the cream cheese filling ingredients. I hope that helps. We will remake it soon to see and update the recipe post if needed. Thanks!
