This sugar-free recipe was created by William for his diabetic aunt, and even includes soft and tender sugar-free ladyfingers. The recipe also includes Marsala wine, which some diabetics can have. If it is not in their diet, then William suggests substituting an equal amount of raisin extract. He wrote: “Many diabetics will appreciate finally being able to share the delicious flavor of the Tiramisu.” Thank you, William! Serves 5.
