Tiramisu Cake
In my family, the cooking is left to the ladies in our home kitchen and the baking is left to my father, at our pastry shop. Ergo, when it came time to decide upon a recipe I chose a cake to test my own baking chops, with just a little bit of help. Classic tiramisu is made usually in a sheet pan or a glass casserole dish so the sponge is left to soak. However, in this instance, our rendition is dressed up a bit, in a cake form to make it easier to slice and serve. This version is still rich in espresso essence and holds truth to its Italian handle.

  We love this recipe because we think it’s an easy way to serve fish to a crowd during one of your summertime gatherings. Throw together the salmon cakes the night before and reheat them quickly in the oven — or even on the grill — just before serving.

This recipe mimics the fall flavors with apples, walnuts, and cranberries. Walt Alper shared with us tips for this cake. He said granulated sugar substitute cakes do not brown the same way or rise the same way as when using sugar. He also replaced 1/4 of the flour in the original recipe with ground nuts to cut the carbohydrate count. Instead, it add more fiber and protein. In addition, because artificial sweeteners don't react the same way as sugar, the cakes don't rise. Therefore, he uses sour cream, baking soda, and vinegar to help the cakes get a little more loft.    Click here to see the 10 Dessert Recipes for Diabetics (Slideshow)

This is a crustless, light verison of an Italian cheesecake. I find that baking it a day in advance and refrigerating it is not only convenient, but it also makes cutting a bit easier. Ricotta cake goes beautifully with an kind of berry.
