egg whites, stiffly beaten
1 1/4 cups

unsweetened cocoa powder
This recipe is really tasty and tastes just like the Tiramisu at the Italian Restaurant I work at. However, it needs to chill over-night to make it sit-up properly. Also, the marscapone mixtures is too runny, so the second layer of lady fingers float to the top. I would possibly suggest letting the marscapone mixture chill for awhile before putting ontop of the lady fingers.
I had great hopes on this recipe but it did not turn out that great. I am disappointed.The only thing differnt i did was to replace kirschwasser. The chesse mixture came out more like a custard and the lady fingers got too soggy. It was a waste of a lot of ingredients not to mention time and effort.
This recipe is so delicious. I skipped the kirschwasser and added about a teaspoon of vanilla. You will not be disapointed!
my family begs me to make this all the time. i don't have any kirschwasser so i just subbed with coffee liquor. this one is a keeper
with tiramisu you can also subsititute the coffee, and liquer with ovaltine, or hot chocolate mix, tiramisu means pick me up, but in italy children are given the substitued one.
This had a good taste to it, but it turned out more like tiramisoup.
this is a wonderful recipe!! i made it for a friend and they said it was better then any they have had before! it is easy and fast to make. i am going to make it next time we have company over! i highly recommend this recipe! i made tiramisu before and some of the other recipes i have tried are very difficult and time consuming, but this one is perfect!
Wow, this was amazing! Almost as good as my favorite restaurants version.
