Daring Baker’s: Tiramisu

The February 2010 Daring Baker’s Challenge was hosted by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen and Deeba of Passionate About Baking. They chose Tiramisu as the challenge for the month. Their challenge recipe is based on recipes from The Washington Post, Cordon Bleu at Home and Baking Obsession.

I’ve heard of Tiramisu but didn’t know much about it before completing this “project”. Here is a little about Tiramisu from the Daring Baker’s website: the perfect Tiramisu is a balance of flavors of a sweet zabaglione, strong coffee, marsala wine, creamy mascarpone cheese and the dusting of unsweetened cocoa. 

This turned out to be pretty tasty, but it definitely takes a lot of time and work!!

There are five separate components that must all be made separately before the Tiramisu can be assembeled: mascarpone cheese, zabaglione, vanilla pastry cream, whipped cream, and savoiardi (“ladyfinger biscuits”).

The tools, ingredients and directions are pretty extensive, so I’m just including links to recipes below, instead of including all of that in my post.

Below are pictures of some of the components I made and my finished Tiramisu:
