Tiramisu – The melt in the mouth Dessert

Tiramisu – The melt in the mouth Dessert

Tiramisu is an elegant and rich layered Italian dessert made with delicate ladyfinger cookies, espresso or instant espresso, mascarpone cheese, eggs, sugar, Marsala wine, rum and cocoa powder.

Traditional tiramisu begins with Savoiardi Ladyfingers, light and delicately sweet sponge cake biscuits. These cookies have a long standing heritage in Italian Cuisine.

Tiramisu literally translates as “pick me up”. I was instantly in love with the dessert when I first tasted it a few years ago. It was then when I started to google and search for a perfect recipe but every time it was just a failure.

Thanks to my Florida trip where I got an opportunity to meet an Italian family who came all the way from Naples for a holiday trip to Florida. Armilia and her husband were enjoying Florida with their grown up kids, one was 16 and other 23. I casually started talking to them and praised a lot about their famous Tiramisu which I could never make with perfection. Armilia was so disappointed upon hearing my Tiramisu recipe failures and she explained me the best way to make a perfect Tiramisu. The recipe she shared is a heritage recipe in their family and everyone is using the same way to make Tiramisu over the generations.

I was so motivated to try it again after receiving the recipe from an authentic Italian. Finally, I succeeded and it resulted into a perfect Tiramisu.

 

Many thanks to Armilia for sharing her family’s heritage recipe with me.

Great work!

I love to read gingeritup articles because it’s everything which you can relate to. The recipes so presentable and delicious yet so easy and simple ingredients and the lil intros which Mani writes to describe the recipe makes you connect with it. The other articles on gingeritup I find very honest and sincere . Rendezvous series is an inspiring unique initiative which she has started which I haven’t seen anywhere else . Overall, I admire Mani for she is so talented and a multitasker.
