Tiramisu – though Italian by origin has won the hearts of people all over the world. I am sure there are very people on this earth who don’t swear by this dessert.  My only regret is that I did not make this sooner or even think of making it. I was under the impression that it needs a lot of ingredients and skill that I believed I seriously lacked. But that is so far from the truth – you can make Tiramisu even if you haven’t made any kind of cake before. You can’t go wrong with this recipe!

I read through a lot of recipes before I settled for this Tiramisu recipe to get started. I was a little nervous and skeptical because I modified the recipe a little and was not sure how my Tiramisu would turn out.  The occasion seemed perfect though – T’s birthday was around the corner and also I was hosting my friends who were kind enough to volunteer as guinea pigs. What more motivation could I ever need?

So what’s great about this recipe –  Easy to make (check), Crowdpleaser (check), Makes people (read husband) take you seriously as a cook (BIG SMILE followed by a happy dance and a BIG check).

Also, I would like to highlight another version of this Tiramisu recipe that I might try one day, which involves the preparation of the cream with eggs heated to sterilize it. But for now, this will more than do.

Note: This recipe uses raw eggs. Please make sure to use fresh eggs!
