Tiramisu Cake Recipe

If I didn’t name this the Best Tiramisu Recipe, I would be underestimating this dessert. It’s that DELICIOUS!

I came across some tiramisu recipes that required the yolks to cook over a double boiler, etc.. The taste of the tiramisu cake made by that method didn’t really impress me (maybe it’s just that recipe, but if I never attempted to try it again it means, I didn’t really care for it). My search for a tasty and a easy tiramisu recipe ended when my friend had amazed me with this tiramisu dessert. If you can beat and combine a few ingredients along with some ladyfingers, then I am sure you can make tiramisu! This cook-free Tiramisu recipe is indeed a simple and yet tasty dessert.

    Can I use rum extract instead of rum? How much would I need?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      you can completely leave out the rum

        Alyona, how do you make this tiramisu recioe and use raw eggs!! Salmonella poisoning!!!

          • Alyona’s Cooking

          Hi Andrea,
          Never got food poisoning from consuming raw eggs and don’t think people who tried this did either. The eggs are incorporated into the cream and are not that detectable in the cream. If that seems to be an issue, you can always look for a custard based tiramisu recipe that involves cooking the eggs. I really enjoy this version.
