I adapted this recipe ever so slightly from the Slimming World Love Desserts cookbook. It is absolutely delicious and had me craving for more afterwards. Just as well it was made up in individual glasses.
4 syns on Extra Easy
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp sweetener
a few drops vanilla essence
9 sponge fingers
3 tsbs instant coffee dissolved in 2 tbsps water
3 tbsp sweetener
1 tbsp brandy
250g fat free natural fromage frais
sweetener to taste
1 tsp cocoa powder
Whisk egg yolk with 1 tbsp sweetener until thick and creamy. Add the vanilla essence and 1 tbsp quark and whisk in gently. Gradually add the remaining quark, whisking to form a smooth cream.
Mix the coffee, water, 3 tbsp sweetener and brandy in a small bowl. Break each sponge finger in three and dip them in the coffee – long enough to soak up some of the liquid, but not so long that they become soggy and fall apart. Put half the coffee flavoured sponge fingers in the bottom of three tall-stemmed glasses, adding the quark mixture on top. Add the rest of the sponge fingers, then chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. Just before serving, top with the fromage frais, sweetened to taste, and dust with the cocoa powder.
