I really enjoyed this tiramisu BUT the lady fingers were way too soggy! I took the advice of my fellow allrecipes members and doubled the coffee/liquor mixture and dipped the lady fingers instead of drizzling on top. Bad idea... My suggestions, Next time I will double only the coffee, not the rum. It was too "rummy" for my liking. I thought if I had too much cake I'd get drunk lol! I didn't use VERY strong coffee though. Also, I will only dip the lady fingers for a second! Definitely don't let them sit in the liquid mixture more than a second or two! It absorbs way too much, that's why everyone's having to double or triple their coffee/rum mixture. Trust me, you'll avoid the soupy mess in the bottom of the pan if you follow these instructions. Besides those alterations, I'd stick to the rest of the recipe AS IS. It was delicious! Oh, I almost forgot... I did let it sit in the fridge for 24 hours before sinking my teeth in it. Other members suggested the longer you let it sit, the more amazing the flavor gets; I'd have to agree! I'm on Day two and its even more delicious! Thanks for the recipe Christine ;)
