This was long due for me. For a long long time I have wanted to bake a tiramisu from scratch, but the
fear of its’ long process kept me waiting. So finally, I got a chance to make my own Mascarpone cheese
from Heavy whipping cream, then every other step that was required. I decided to make the cake as a
base instead of the traditional savoiardi/lady fingers. Although, Tiramisu is best with lady fingers and
brings out its’ authentic taste but I just did not have the time to make that from scratch or buy it.
I took my Mascarpone recipe from Baking Obsessions, my filling recipes from
After devouring the cake, I felt that I should have omitted the custard filling from the filling as it made
the filling more sweet than I like it in a tiramisu. I should have used some coffee into the filling as well
because to me Tiramisu is all about COFFEE flavor!
I just sprinkled it with cocoa powder with a heart shaped cut out in middle to form the shape
and while serving the cake piece was drizzled with some chocolate syrup.
So those were my adapted recipes above, feel free to check them out to come up with
your version of Tiramisu.
