Tiramisu Cake
Tiramisu, which comes from an Italian word which means "pick me up", is an irresistible dessert which is made by soaking ladyfingers cookies into espresso and coffee liquor layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks and mascarpone cheese; and finally dusted with cocoa powder when served. This Tiramisu cake is made by my girlfriend in her baking class where everything is made from scratch, including the ladyfingers cookies.
