Hello ladies,

Heeeelllllppppp....I had a customer request this cake and I have never even heard of it, lol icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif , I told him that I did not have any idea how to make it and he emailed me recipes!

Do any of you fine bakers have a Tiramisu recipe?

The cheese in the tiramisu is actually Italian cream cheese, Mascarpone. My sister has made lady fingers and her recipe is good.

First off don't worry about the marscapone cheese. It is an Italian cream cheese with a distinctive flavour.
You can buy it in most fine grocery stores or you can actually make it if you get desperate.
Secondly, this is not a cake that you can decorate much since it is similar to that of a truffle. It is a layered product.
It is made with lady fingers, cold strong expresso or strong coffee and soft cheese. It is lighter than air. Unlike the american cheese cake.
It is a poverty dessert of sorts as it would use stale cake, cold coffee and old cheese that you had around the housel.
Now is it a gourmet dessert that has been popular in many countries for about 15 yrs.
Tira means to pull
mi means me
su means from under
so translated the cake means a "little pick me up"

This dessert does use raw eggs in a lot of the recipes. So you must use fresh eggs if you use a recipe that contains them.
Also, do not substitute cream cheese for the Italian marscapone since it completely changes the flavour.
This is a fabulous dessert and you should make yourself a pan too. Wonderful.
Good luck
