This desert is awesome! It is not however for the timid! If you're a java junkie like me, welcome to heaven! Caution, do not eat this desert if you plan to sleep in the next 4-6 hours! It's not going to happen!
One change I like to make is to not finely grind the espresso as suggested, but rather leave it chunky. You might also want to sprinkle a few espresso beans on top for the ultimate java junkie desert!
Next time you go the the grocery store, check out all the new coffee/espresso ice creams & find which one you'd like best in this desert!
I love coffee and this recipe is perfect! :)
I didnt follow this recipe exactly, but I used the idea as the basis for a more traditional looking (and weaker coffee tasting) tiramisu icecream cake. Since I didnt make this exact cake, I gave it a rating equal to what it currently is at (4.5) to avoid changing the rating. I used the recipe for the coffee syrup, but instead of a sponge cake, I used the traditional ladyfinger cookies. I also used about 1 litre of Chapmans brand cappucino frozen yogurt (a healthier option), and another of vanilla, layering them. I assembled it in a springform pan, wrapped in waxpaper, to keep it upright and prevent leakage. I then shaved a bar of room-temperature dark chocolate overtop, using a potato peeler (some recipes said to freeze the bar, but that just made it flakey rather than nice long peels). Thanks for the awesome idea!
I never drink coffee, but this dessert still had me licking my lips. Definitely easy to make. I made this while I was in Turkey in the hot summer so it melted quite quickly and was a bit difficult to assemble, but still tasted great.
I hosted an italian dinner party and served this ice cream tiramisu for dessert - my guests were in AWE! I highly recommend a spring form pan. I used bavarian expresso light ice cream from turkey hill and low fat coffee ice cream from Edy's. I did have a difficult time trying to soak the syrup into the sponge cake - next time I will pierce the cake. I topped the cake with chocolate shavings and wrapped it with lady fingers for an elegant look. I will definitely make this again... and totally suggest using bavarian espresso ice cream, YUMMY!!!
P.S. My husband does not like coffee and he absolutely loved this cake!
