Home RecipesDessert Tiramisu

I don’t make Tiramisu often. It’s such a rich and heavy dessert you really shouldn’t have every week, but when I do make it, I feel like I’m in heaven with every bite I take. It’s the combination of juicy, coffee flavoured ladyfingers with the creamy, sweet mascarpone mixture that just takes this dish over the top. 

I had a lot of tiramisus in restaurants over the years, but I always come back to a classic nearly alcohol free recipe. Some people like to soak their ladyfingers in tons of booze, but that’s not for me. I feel it drowns the flavour of the cream. But hey… whatever floats your boat. I’m strange when it comes to alcohol in desserts and candy. I like booze and I like candy, but I don’t like the combination of both. I can tolerate a small amount, but that’s it.


What I also love about Tiramisu is that it’s sooo easy to make and almost fool proof. So with just a few steps you can create a delicious dessert, that will impress at every dinner party. So if you haven’t tried to make it yourself, go and give it a try!
