Had I known that it`s so easy to make your own Tiramisu, I wouldn`t have ordered it at Olive Garden or any Italian restaurants where we dine in every time and pay so much for a small slice of tiramisu cake. It`s ok:), now that I know the secret and how easy it is to make my own, I shall make it all the time at home. Here`s my first attempt of making a tiramisu cake for my hubby`s birthday two days ago and he loved it:) The only thing is that you have to make this cake at least a day before so that all the flavors come through together. I used a wonderful recipe that I`ve found on the Internet with great reviews and for any of you who loves tiramisu, this recipe is keeper!


6 egg yolks
3/4 cup white sugar
2/3 cup milk
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pound mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup strong brewed coffee, room temperature
2 tablespoons rum
2 (3 ounce) packages ladyfinger cookies
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

In a medium saucepan, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well blended. Whisk in milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil gently for 1 minute, remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Cover tightly and chill in refrigerator 1 hour.
In a medium bowl, beat cream with vanilla until stiff peaks form. Whisk mascarpone into yolk mixture until smooth.
In a small bowl, combine coffee and rum. Split ladyfingers in half lengthwise and drizzle with coffee mixture.
Arrange half of soaked ladyfingers in bottom of a 7x11 inch dish. Spread half of mascarpone mixture over ladyfingers, then half of whipped cream over that. Repeat layers and sprinkle with cocoa. Cover and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours, until set.
