Elegant Tiramisu


The literal meaning of Tiramisu in Italian is “pick me up” or “cheer me up”. As the name implies, this is an iconic Italian dessert that is served at the end of the meal that hopefully “cheers you up”. In our house hold this dessert has become a favourite.

Whether we are hosting or it is just for us, we love this decadent dessert. Depending on the occasion as well as who we are sharing it with, it might be a boozy Tiramisu. Traditionally, the alcohol used in this dessert is light rum, coffee liqueur, brandy, or cognac. A superb twist Chellzkitchen discovered instead of the aforementioned is using African Wild Caramel Cream.

This special dessert was created in the bakery of the restaurant. Over time, people have continued to make Tiramisu and develop their own techniques of making this delicious Italian dessert, as have we. Our version of this scrumptious dessert is the cheat version, for the mere fact that we make none of the ingredients from scratch. Everything is off the shelf for convenience, the cream that is used instead of custard from scratch and the lady finger biscuits instead of a baked sponge. I love cooking more than I do making dessert, which is why I naturally offer you so many baking hacks. Same amount of goodness with less skill set needed and less time to prepare.
