strong brewed coffee
unsweetened cocoa powder
I served this at an Italian themed dinner party. It
was the easiest item on the menu to prepare - and the
that got the most compliments!
It is not cooked, so the alcohol is not burned off. I
wouldn't serve large pieces to children. :-) Also, remember,
the eggs are not coddled, so keep refridgerated.
I modified the recipe slightly to include a third layer. Very
easy recipe to modify. I used 50% more lady fingers, another 2/3 cup
coffee, teaspoon of cognac (Yes, I used cognac in lieu of
rum), etc. It wasn't an exact science - I eyeballed most
of it - but the recipe is really friendly, so everything
turned out perfectly.
Great recipe! Give it a try!
One other tip - use a glass pan, not metal. Metal will
react with your liquor and turn the lady fingers dark
green/black. Not pretty.
This recipe was okay. I replaced the rum with Kahula, which made it alot better. I highly recommend chilling this desert over night, it was much better than four hours after making it. I also suggest making a small batch to try your hand at it first, it was helpful to tweek the recipe to my taste.
wow. delicious and easy. i couldn't find ladyfingers at the store, so i used vanilla wafers instead. and i substituted kahlua for all the rum. it was fantastic, if i do say so myself. the only thing i would do differently next time is soak the cookies longer. i was afraid they would get too soggy, but i think they weren't soggy enough. my bad. overall, though, totally killer and it really was easy to prepare.
This ended up a little bit to soggy for us and the rum flavor was a bit overpowering. The cream mixture turned out pretty good. Maybe the lady fingers I used soaked up to much. I only dipped them for about 1 second, though. My husband usually loves tiramisu, but wasn't all that impressed. Sorry!
There are so many different ways to make this dessert. This is very tasty, try using rum extract~Very good.
I found it a bit to watery when it as sat for some time
This recipe was quite easy to prepare, but not as good as tiramisu in a restaurant. I agree with other reviewers that it was too runny and the alchohol overpowered the dish. The flavor masked the delicacy of the mascarpone.
The rum flavor was overpowering, but if less was used, or none at all, this would be delicious. It also seemed there was not enough of the mascarpone cheese mix, so I will make more next time.
