My mom used to make Tiramisu as it's my sister's favorite, but hasn't made it in forever. I found this recipe was even better than hers.
First, I followed another reviewer's instructions and decreased the sugar to 1/2 cup, and prepared the sugar in the double boiler separate from the egg yolks; I'm not sure what a difference it made as I never made it the other way,
I HIGHLY recommend making it in a springform pan. My biggest complaint with my mom's version was that the bottom tended to get soggy because the coffee from the cookies would leak out. That being said, I put a larger bowl under the pan as I worked to absorb the coffee that leaked out.
Also, because I was taking the cake to go, I froze it for a few hours beforehand. It kept its shape PERFECTLY on the drive over, made slicing it much neater, and even though the center was slightly frozen, I'd probably just not freeze it as long next time.
Great recipe. Loved it.
