Tiramisu Recipe

This classic and easy tiramisu recipe stands out as one of my top three favorite dessert recipes. I discovered tiramisu late in my life, only after marrying my chef wife, and it was love at first sight, I mean, my wife, and then the tiramisu ?

Tiramisu translated to 'lift me up' in Italian and no other words could describe this recipe any better. It comes at the right time, during the afternoon slump, after a big lunch, when you need something to lift you up.

There are many variations to this tiramisu recipe. I have tried many different servings from different restaurants and coffee shops, but nothing comes to my wife's homemade tiramisu recipe. It is true that you always go back to what works best for you.

One of the secrets of this tiramisu recipe lies in the coffee that you use when preparing this recipe. We buy our coffee in bulk from a local coffee roaster, then we grind it as we need the coffee and that is the coffee we use, A good quality coffee.

We are happy you are here and hope you will enjoy our tiramisu recipe as much as we do. Please let us know what you think of this recipe, or even better yet, take a snapshot and tag us on Instagram @cookingcatdotcom
