Tiramisu and lady fingers

I reviewed a handful of recipes for tiramisu, and settled on something that I think is closest to the original dish.  One recommendation I would make is to use a thicker coconut yogurt rather than a thinner soy one. It adds the right amount of body.  These, however, are a little lady finger sandwiches with a bit of filling and chocolate squares in the middle. 

For the tiramisu, I used:

Lady fingers:
2 cups of whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
1 cup of organic sugar
1/4 cup of vegetable oil
2/3 cup of water
1/3 cup of vanilla soy milk
Very small pinch of sea salt

Mix dry, mix wet, combine, and then smooth into a dusted baking dish. I bake on 350 for about 20 minutes (but I used a convection oven).  Bake time will vary, but they should be lightly browned.

About 2 cups of espresso to saturate these ones they were baked, cut and then rebaked. The quality of the espresso is very important.

For the filling:
2 packages of plant-only cream cheese
1 package (about 450 grams or 1 1/2 to 2 cups) of vanilla coconut yogurt
3/4 cups of organic powdered sugar
All blended

Cocoa to dust
Shaved chocolate to decorate

And the finished product!
