Tiramisu is one of those desserts that perfectly concludes a five-star Italian dinner either in our favorite restaurants or even at the table with family. It's a classic recipe that has been a staple in households for generations, making it something that not only gets our tastebuds dancing but also holds a special place in our hearts. Even though many have certainly indulged in more than one serving over our lives, the time comes when we need to step up to the plate and make some of our own. We're here to give you an easy tiramisu recipe that will be just like Nonna used to make!
Some people enjoy topping their tiramisu with whipped cream as opposed to chocolate shavings so it's really up to you and your personal tastes. Traditional recipes call for a cocoa powder dusting to really add to the finished product, but feel free to make it your own!
If you don't particularly like the taste of espresso (it can be really strong for many people) then you can sub it out for hot chocolate. Additionally, some people don't enjoy the taste of mascarpone, in which case you can substitute with cream cheese or whipped cream. Some people even like mixing the two and using it that way!
Putting together a tiramisu doesn't need to be a difficult process. Gone are the days of trying to impress family members or live up to the recipe you indulged in as a kid. Make it your own and live life to your tastes, swapping out whatever ingredients don't work for you with something you know you'll enjoy. Bringing homemade tiramisu to the table for dessert is enough to get people to love you!
