Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day or ignore it completely?

My four little ones are really keen! All afternoon  yesterday was dedicated to it. They made Valentine’s Day cards for each other and their friends as well as Hama Bead hearts, bookmarks and ombré candles. I did get sucked in and spent a good half hour colouring a bookmark for Crevette, my favourite bookworm. He was over the moon! This morning, as we were all having porridge, the doorbell rang. Beanie’s friend was at the door, holding a pretty carrier bag. Inside was a lovely teddy. How sweet is that?

I worked with this recipe and even attended ‘Sweet School’ with an expert nutritionist a few months ago. This lovely collaboration motivated me to bake with the sweetener and after some trial and error to try and reproduce one of the bakes we had on the day, I came up with these this recipe.

When the lovely people at Splenda asked me to share their Berry Tiramisu Recipe, I couldn’t say no: those babies looked incredible!

Recipe Notes

Tip: You can make a coffee tiramisu if you exclude the red fruits and moisten the sponge fingers with strong coffee and dust with cacao powder just before serving.

For the gluten-free sponge fingers, use this recipe by my friend Rebecca at ‘Glutarama.’

    Of this is so pretty! And so perfect for Valentine’s day. I love the traditional flavours in a tiramisu…but I’d be more than happy to try this version out too…I think it would also be lovely as summer dessert – too nice to save just for Valentine’s day!! And aren’t your little ones cute with all their Valentine’s crafts. My two surprised us with cards they’d made and presents they’d wrapped (albeit things they already owned – too little to go to the shops on their own) – so sweet!! Eb x

      Oh bless them! I love it when my children do that. I had a rather dishevelled Barbie for my birthday and a couple of teddies 🙂

    What a lovely take on Tiramisu. So pretty too.
    I love when kids share valentines….. sadly, it doesn’t seem to last. When they get to secondary school, they become rather cynical and ‘anti’. x

      Easy peasy is the only thing we’ll attempt in this house (with my 4, it would be carnage if I was pottering in the kitchen for hours and hours!).
