Helpful hints

  • A 10-ounce prepared pound cake is the smaller size.
  • This is a low phosphorus version of traditional tiramisu.
  • To reduce carbohydrates and fat, use sugar substitute instead of sugar and replace regular cream cheese with low-fat cream cheese. You can also adjust to a smaller portion size.
