Never in a million years would I have thought I would be making my own tiramisu, but here we are. I am a devout lover of all things coffee: hot coffee, iced coffee, coffee ice cream. It’s not a surprise that I love tiramisu. The thought of making this on my own was initially horrifying considering I am not a professionally-taught baker. After a few weeks of researching ingredients, and developing the measurements of my recipe I decided to try it out last week and I am SO happy I did. Not only was this tiramisu exactly as I had pictured, it was incredibly easy to make.
Tiramisu originates in the 1800’s in Veneto, Italy. The term “tiramisu” translates to “pick me up,” which corresponds with the cocoa powder and espresso (or coffee in this version) ingredients. Making this recipe made me appreciate the simplicity of making classic dishes as well. Sometimes recipes get incredibly complicated fairly quickly, and I’m proud that my tiramisu recipe sticks to the classic ingredients of heavy cream, sugar, lady fingers, egg yolks, mascarpone, coffee, and a coffee liqueur.
This recipe for the classic Tiramisu will make you feel as if you were in Italy! Creamy mascarpone, coffee-soaked ladyfingers, with the perfect amount of coffee liquor, you won't stop at just one serving.
