What is Tiramisu?
Tiramisu is a coffee-flavored Italian dessert that is now beloved all over the world. The origins of tiramisu are a bit of a mystery, but the dessert is believed to have originated in the Veneto region of Italy in the 1960s or 1970s. Some sources credit the dessert's creation to a restaurant in Treviso, Italy, while others claim it was first made in the city of Siena. Despite the uncertainty about its origins, it's clear that tiramisu has become an iconic Italian dessert that has gained worldwide popularity.
Classic tiramisu is made with ladyfingers (aka sweet sponge cake biscuits shaped like large fingers) dipped in coffee, and then layered in a whipped mixture that originally calls for eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, then topped with cocoa.
Fun fact: traditional tiramisu recipes soak the ladyfingers in a coffee mixture that also contains marsala wine or liqueur.
While Tiramisu is a decadent dessert, it is much lighter compared to other desserts that are overly sweet without anything to balance out the sugar. Tiramisu achieves a balanced taste by adding a touch of bitterness with the coffee or espresso. You can also adjust the amount of sugar used to achieve the sweetness level of your liking.
There are several new varieties of this dessert, and we’re bringing you one today that is easy to make and safe to enjoy for those with food allergies or adhering to a vegan diet.
