“This is Bob’s absolute favourite El Piano dessert of all time. When we were working to put this book together he said more than once that he hoped that, if people made only one recipe from the book, then it would be the tiramisu.”


For the sponge:

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/3 cup maple or agave syrup
  • 1/3 cup sunflower oil
  • 2/3 cup coconut mylk (carton)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1½ tbsp baking powder

For the coconut cream:

  • 500g coconut cream – this is awkward to predict since the coconut cream in any tin varies from tin to tin. Keep opening them and scraping out the cream until there is 500g
  • 40ml brandy
  • 40ml vanilla essence
  • 80ml syrup
  • ¼ tsp salt

Make the soak sauce by combining:

  • 2 tbsp instant coffee
  • 300ml hot water
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 100ml syrup
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 60ml brandy (check the brandy is vegan, many aren’t!)


Bake the sponge:

  1. Whip together the oil, vanilla and sweetener; then the mylk.
  2. Fold in the flour, salt and baking powder.
  3. Bake in an oven tray at medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until the sponge is set. Remove and leave to cool.

Make the coconut cream:

  1. Whip everything by hand – not machine!

Now assemble it:

  1. Put a drop of brandy in the base of each parfait dish.
  2. Slice the cake into fingers and briefly soak in the soak sauce, just a quick in and out.
  3. Repeatedly layer the soaked cake and the coconut cream into the parfait glasses, finishing on a cream layer.
  4. Dust with cocoa and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
