- LoveThis tiramisu cake comes with quite a twist on an old favourite.
Tiramisu is a popular rich and creamy Italian dessert flavoured with coffee and liqueur. It’s made of sponge fingers that are dipped into coffee which has been flavoured with liqueur and layered with a delicious, creamy mascarpone mixture.
This tiramisu is made up-side-down and uses cream cheese instead of mascarpone to produce a firmer tiramisu. This allows the cake to be turned out, filled with fresh berries in the centre and sliced.
I have used the Mastrad Silicone Savarin Cake Pan for this gorgeous dessert.
