I love Italian food, every plate has a fresh, light and easy to cook feel to it. But I have to say that I truly love Tiramisu, which is an Italian inspired dessert or at least it’s a dessert you would find in any Italian restaurant. Tiramisu is a layer dessert, consisting of alternating layers of coffee-soaked ladyfingers and a sweet mixture of mascarpone cheese, egg yolks and sugar. Some liquor is also used, like for example Marsala Wine, Brandy, Amaretto or a Coffee liquor of your choice. Finally a sprinkle of cocoa powder can be added to every layer or just to top the dessert. Sounds super yummy already! The best part is that I have a recipe for you and some pictures of the one I made.
I also used an amazing vanilla extract from a local vendor. Mannix Vanilla, it’s a premium vanilla and family owned business. Love the smell of this vanilla. You can find them in Winter Park Farmers Market in Florida! or you can go online and shop there too. Great quality indeed.
Now for the recipe!
