With Valentine's Day coming up soon, I have been looking for romantic recipes to serve my husband. He loves desserts, and for him, the sweeter the better. I, on the other hand, prefer desserts that are a bit less sweet, like cheesecake or Tiramisu.
Have you ever tried making traditional Tiramisu? It can be pretty tricky, and not something to attempt if you're a "kitchen virgin".
Luckily, while browsing the internet, I found some great recipes for Tiramisu cakes! These are full of that wonderful flavor but take a lot less work. I have made a few of the recipes, played with ingredients, and tweaked it until I found what I believe is perfection. My husband and kids agree! The best part? This uses a simple boxed white cake mix as a base. Can't get much easier than that!
The secret behind this deceptively simple recipe is to use good quality ingredients. For the coffee, we like Tim Horton's. This can be ordered online if you're not in certain places in the US or in Canada, where Timmy's is abundant. (Trust me...This coffee is AMAZING, and I am not even a big coffee drinker!) We also like Ghiradelli chocolate for the chocolate curls. Any chocolate will do, of course, but we have found that this brand is quite easy to work with and has a wonderful, complex flavor. The end result? A decadent Tiramisu cake that will make people think you slaved away all day long!
