Many people are familiar with the delicious Italian dessert Tiramisu. This recipe from blogger Sabine’s blog Also All the Crumbs Please transforms the classic dessert into a decadent cake. The recipe calls for a lot of mascarpone cream, over 2 lbs, but it is well worth it! I love this food blog because it is very detailed and technical in its directions which is so important when you are baking. She also has beautiful photographs and video which are exceptionally helpful, along with notes and details about her recipe. I shared this dessert for a dinner party. I made the cakes the day before and frosted the cake the day of my dinner party. To flavor my mascarpone frosting, I used 2 tablespoons of espresso powder rather than brewed coffee. I dissolved in in the cream before adding it to the whipped mascarpone as I wanted to ensure my frosting was not terribly runny, If you like a strong coffee flavor, you could add more. I also used a little vanilla extract in the genoise cake and in my whipped cream. I have never been a great cake baker, but this recipe was a winner and has given me more confidence and enthusiasm to experiment with new cake recipes. I have provided the recipe below and a link to the blog.
