Tiramisu

I know that I don’t have to tell you any story of this soft and sweet dessert, most of us knows about it. Many people have their own dearest dessert, mine is Tiramisu. The love affair start form Italian restaurant in the childhood and it grows. I try any one that I can (I really love the Tiramisu at Harrods, but you have to eat it real soon after it leave the counter, the softness, lightly sweet, oh mine). I want to have a good recipe and I found this one. I love the lightness of this recipe, you can see that it uses only 150 g of mascarpone but it’s still rich enough to fulfill your mind (do you have the same feeling, when you eat something that you really like, it’s so comforting). Some of the easy recipe has a lot of cream, which I found it too rich, but you will only get the soft and light from this one. The original recipe ask for the grounded coffee or cocoa powder, but I found it too hash for many people so I change to grated dark chocolate and I like it more. I don’t see any liqueur in the recipe, and I don’t think that we should leave it out, so Kahlua®, I need you now (in fact you can use other kind of liqueur that you like).

I love this one, even the recipe is for 8 people, and I already finished half of it by now.
