Tiramisu

Tiramisu



I noticed all earlier comments left in lady fingers /savoiardi biscuits are gone missing, i guess due to blogger system broke down yesterday. But don't worry, I had read all your lovely comments. Yesterday i just done this Tiramisu using homemade lady fingers/savoiardi biscuits.

I even rushed to nearby Starbuck coffee shop to buy a cup of fresh expresso to make this Tiramisu..I want good and fresh coffee since I also use homemade fresh lady fingers, resulted a very fresh and delicious Tiramisu.I adapted the Tiramisu recipe in one of my collection "a year of desserts' book which requires no egg yolks to be added.


Tiramisu cut after 4 hours, the cream is not yet firm..

Tiramisu cut after kept overnight, easy to cut as the cream has firm up.

I managed to make a 7" Tiramisu and also use the leftover filling to make another 1 wine glass of Tiramisu. Next time, I will be serving Tiramisu in individual glass, I found this way more handy and presentable.

I also think that tiramisu serve with glass will be easier for handling. I have been thinking of buying Kahlua to make tiramisu.

I always puzzle if I should sprinkle unsweetened cocoa powder on tiramisu as it may turn out too bitter, guess using the chocolate shavings is a great idea ^_^

I wasn't able to comment on your lady fingers last time, because of the Blogger update. I was hoping that you would make tiramisu, this would be the first dessert that would pop up in my mind if I have lady fingers.

Yours look so inviting. Nicely decorated.

such a beautiful cake!

Min said...

Sonia, great job! What a pretty cake. I love tiramisu very much especially those with very strong coffee taste, yours look better than those sold outside :)

That looks so beautiful! You are such an accomplished cook. Only one suggestion: try using some sweet marsala wine ("Cremovo") next time instead of (or in addition to) Kahlua. The traditional flavor of Tiramisu depends on the unique combination of Marsala and coffee! :)
