View my step-by-step video Tiramisu_NotextThe Italian that came up with this combination of Marscapone cheese and coffee was a genius. Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts, not just to eat but it’s also perfect to make a family style bowl that’s perfect for a large gathering but is still elegant. This is my version of Tiramisu and I love to lighten it up with the addition of whipped cream.
