Tiramisu, the Italian coffee flavoured dessert that’s name means “pick me up”, “cheer me up” or “lift me up” – and that is what it does indeed! It’s a rich, creamy, aromatic custard dessert and the flavour only gets better when ‘aged’ in fridge for a day or two.
I’ve removed my earlier recipe of this dessert as the recipe had some errors in the quantities ( thank you Sarah, for notifying me x). The main difference in the recipes is that I’ve done this one from scratch using homemade Lady Fingers and used almond flavoured Disaronno liqueur instead of coffee flavoured liqueur.
Coffee flavoured macarons make an excellent topping for this dessert, though you must add them only in the last moment before serving as the moist custard melts the delicate macaron shells if left in for longer.
