While Megan of Delicious Dishings is in Italy for her honeymoon, I am guest posting for her on her blog! Check out the excerpt below:
It’s no secret that Megan and I both love desserts and that we are both chocoholics. So when she asked for guests bloggers for while she is getting married and honeymooning in Italy, I was thrilled at the chance to indulge my (and her) sweet tooth and whip up an Italian dessert that’s finished with a feathery dusting of dark chocolate: tiramisu.
I love all the components of tiramisu – the soft sponginess of the espresso and liqueur-soaked ladyfingers, the creaminess of the mascarpone cheese mixture, and the light sweetness from the shaved chocolate. Some recipes call for zabaglione, an Italian custard made with egg yolks, sugar, and a sweet wine (usually Marsala wine) that is then folded in with mascarpone cheese and espresso for the filling. However, I didn’t have any Marsala wine so I tried a recipe that just had egg yolks and sugar. But don’t worry, I didn’t skip on the alcohol completely – I soaked the ladyfingers in espresso mixed with plenty of Kahlua (coffee liqueur).
