My Quick And Easy Tiramisu Recipe
This is a great, easy recipe for the classic Italian dessert Tiramisu.
This tiramisu recipe is easy to make, it takes about 20 minutes, and, though the purists may scoff, I can honestly say that I have never given this tiramisu to anyone (who likes strong coffee puds!) who didn't love it.
I've been making this easy version of tiramisu for over 10 years now and it's a big family favourite with many a fan thinking it's better than the classic version of tiramisu. Give it a go; you won't be sorry!
What is Tiramisu?
Tiramisu is a traditional Italian layered dessert made by dipping sponge fingers in coffee and covering with a whipped mixture of egg yolks and mascarpone, and flavored with a coffee liquor and cocoa.
My Tiramisu recipe is a wonderfully flavored version of the traditional Italian Tiramisu without the work!
Try it, you won't be disappointed!
