“Tiramisu, a coffee flavoured Italian dessert that is not uncommonly found in the cafes and bakeries in Singapore.”
Tiramisu is made of Italian airy biscuit sticks (called it the ladyfingers), soaked in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavoured with alcohol, mostly… This popular sweet treat is not difficult to assemble. Many have been coming up with their own best version, and since it has been adapted and varied so much in order to blend into the culture and taste of the people in different countries, as for the homemade, we, too, make and try to achieve the best recipe that suits our very own tastebud.
Though the real aromatic Tiramisu is said to use expresso to soak the ladyfingers. Brewed one, especially. However, I used instant coffee powder which had left in my pantry for quite sometime. And, for that reason, I chose to add in the coffee emulco, or for liquor lover, use Kahlua (or any coffee liquor), to elevate the coffee aromas.
