Best ever Tiramisu Recipe

I’ve just returned from a quick weekend getaway with the girls in Italy at my best friend’s parents.  They live there for 20 years…..oh, Italy ….I so love this country, the language, the food(especially this best ever tiramisu ), the music, the people, the architecture, well,  pretty much everything about it. 🙂

So, after trying it at every restaurant that we went to, I’ve come back home and had to give it a try. If you don’t know tiramisu is a popular coffee-flavored Italian custard dessert, that I adore. It’s made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, but I prefer cappuccino for mine, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavored with cocoa.

So, with the insides learned from my best friend’s mother, I’ve made this tiramisu that I love so much and already made twice because is so good and can’t have enough of it.

This is the perfect dessert on a hot day; it is creamy, fluffy and chilled…just yummy. This is why I love Tiramisu ( And you should too! 🙂 )

I hope you will like my take to the recipe as it is a little different from the normal tiramisu recipe. But, I can tell you that it is just amazing and for sure it will be the best choice for a quick and delicious sweet recipe when you have somebody visiting or just for you at home.

This recipe does not require any backing and just a little cooking time.

Also, I have tried to use less sugar as I’m trying to eat less…if it will be possible 🙂 …. and it still remains sweet and delicious.

Please let me know if you will try it, will love to know if you like it!
