Tiramisu

NICE TO KNOW

Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts, so I cook it pretty often. There are a lot of recipes for this amazing dessert that you can find on the internet or cookbooks, and honestly, I can’t claim than the recipe that I’m going to share with you is unique. But it is the recipe that I came up with after experimenting with different proportions of ingredients, on my (and my family) opinion it has great consistency and very balanced and smooth taste that won’t go unnoticed. Enjoy the recipe and send me your feedback
