I used this Tiramisu recipe at a family function, and to say it was a hit would be an understatement. My whole family bakes and they know their desserts very well, so this is a definite 5/5.
The only things I changed were the following: I used Kahlua instead of Rum because I like its flavour more, and I used MUCH more than 1/4 cup of strong coffee. I used about 1.5 cups per layer of lady fingers. I didn't soak them beforehand, I simply laid them dry and then poured the 1.5 cups of coffee (mixed with about 1/4 cup kahlua) onto them. This worked well since the ladyfingers absorb very quickly. I also found the mascarpone mixture difficult to spread with a spatula (it's quick thick) so just a head up: it's probably easiest to use your washed hands.
In accordance with one other review here, I made it 24 hours before it was to be served, and I agree that the flavour was more intense. Happy Baking!
