Just another different Tiramisu recipe.
Where’s the coffee gone? I haven’t forgotten it, I swear. I’ve just decided to cheer myself up with another very popular Italian product, instead. Limoncello. Here citrus notes replace the caffeine kick of one of my favorite baverages. Why so? I had to share a cake/dessert with someone who doesn’t like coffee (oh yeah, this kind of person exists). Sure, I could have prepared any other dessert but Tiramisu is always my first option when I need to be sure to get a palatable dessert.
Since I have a bad relationship with the oven (meaning I systematically burn everything that goes inside), I welcome every recipe requiring no baking skills at all. Not even the “Baking for dummies” guide would help. I am too rebel to follow a recipe to the letter. That means sometimes my cakes turn out good, some (many) other times don’t. Absolutely don’t.
Tiramisu is a different story. It ALWAYS tastes delicious (and I don’t need to put in the oven 🙂 ). It’s what I call a comfort dessert.
A delicious bottle of a different type of Limoncello (Limoncino, made with grappa), has been gleaming yellow and mighty in my fridge for a few days. Strange and surprisingly enough, although it’s made with real Sicilian lemons, this elegant bottle didn’t arrive from Italy but from Denmark. Brought over by my dearest bloggers, Milana and Gordana. The combination limoncino/tiramisu was a natural consequence (I like to think)!
p.s. It’s summer in London. It’s uplifting (but how many hours will it last, I wonder). What’s your weather like?
