About this recipe: Tiramisu literally translates to "pick me up". This recipe will not disappoint! Lady fingers are layered with a creamy mascarpone cheese, then topped with unsweetened cocoa. Serve as a decadent dessert.
I made this recipe but had to use raspberry liqueur rather than kirsch and strips of sponge cake instead of fingers, the only reason being i couldn't find the right ones in the shops. Unfortunately my tirimasu didn't set, which may have been the fault of the improvisation or the fact i may not have stiffened my egg whites enough, so I'm not going to blame it o the recipe. I froze it though and ate it like an ice cream and the taste was fantastic. ( mine was raspberry, not cherry) - 26 Oct 2014
This recipe is really tasty and tastes just like the Tiramisu at the Italian Restaurant I work at. However, it needs to chill over-night to make it sit-up properly. Also, the marscapone mixtures is too runny, so the second layer of lady fingers float to the top. I would possibly suggest letting the marscapone mixture chill for awhile before putting ontop of the lady fingers. - 15 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is so delicious. I skipped the kirschwasser and added about a teaspoon of vanilla. You will not be disapointed! - 03 Oct 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
