Barattolini con crema e cocco tostato. L’estate è finita da qualche mese, e per un po’ ho riposto i miei fidati barattolini. per un po’, ecco… mica ho detto per sempre? mi è venuta la nostalgia. così oggi li ho tolti dallo scaffale, soffiata via la polvere, e messi di nuovo in azione 😛 però […]
Tiramisu is an Italian classic.
It’s probably the most famous Italian cake in the world. Because of course mascarpone cheese is damn good!
Probably it’s not so easy to find abroad, and likely quite expensive, but when you will try this cake, you will not regret about your efforts to find it.
The name “Tiramisu” litterally means “pick/lift me up” because the legend says it has aphrodiasiac powers. I honestly doubt it ahaha but of course it’s a very energizing cake!
I prepared these nice single-serving Tiramisu-s because my mother often teaches cooking classes for foreign people who want to learn both Italian language and cooking 😛
There’s a famous language school near our hotel, they teach foreigners language of course, and we take care of the cooking part!
Tiramisu is a very fast and easy recipe. It doesn’t need to be cooked, just stored in the frigde.
If I have to compare Tiramisu to a famous English dessert i would say “trifle”, even if the flavour and method is totally different.
