Tiramisu…is a da bomb!
Yup. I’m going there. Dorie was right. Tiramisu was everywhere in the 90s (and still makes a respectable showing). I myself went through an 18 month period when I ordered it every time it was on the menu. Then, and I am sorry to admit this is the honest truth, it randomly occurred to me one day that I prefer about a million other desserts, especially ones that up the chocolate quotient. Tiramisu was my favorite dessert…not! Either I was just sucked into the hype or had experienced a tiramisu overload – both are entirely possible. It wasn’t as bad as the time my friend and I ate an entire bag of Nacho Cheese Doritos while watching Valley Girl and pining for our own Randy (Nicholas Cage). I still can’t stand the sight or smell of those. But, I haven’t ordered tiramisu in probably 15 years.
I was stoked when one of my favorite bloggers, Megan of My Baking Adventures, chose the Tiramisu Cake this week. Coffee, cake, cream…sweet. I made half the recipe in a 6 inch springform. Next time I need to use two separate pans – my layering/cutting skills are hella bad. I did not halve the syrup or the filling/frosting. As if.
ignore the slope…
Since we are going back to the 90s with this one, I have decided my cake is an ode to the style and spirit of grunge. I scoff at your perfectly flat and frosted cakes. Cobain lives!
PS the cake was dope. We ate it in like 10 seconds.
Peace out, dawg.
