Tiramisu cake

NICE TO KNOW

Great classics in a cake form! This cake has a very mild and balanced taste of coffee, not too sweet and has been liked by all my guests (even ones, who doesn’t like original Tiramisu dessert), I’m not using uncooked eggs in this recipe, so you can easily store it in the fridge for a couple of days. And, of course, if you are afraid that it has too much of caffeine – use decaf coffee, it won’t affect the taste!
So follow the steps in the recipe below and leave comments!
