I have been asked for a dessert recipe, and this is the one I will start with. I have a ton of recipes for great desserts, and I happened to film this episode this past summer. My sister asked for this recipe just a few days ago, so I figured I better get it on the site! This, if followed correctly, will make a wonderful Tiramisu with filling/topping that stands up nicely, and has just the right amount of firmness. The sweetness of the mascarpone/whipped cream balanced against the espresso & rum, make for an unbelievable mixture of tastes and textures. This is something I get asked to make every year for a family reunion… and it always gets finnished!
This episode is nearly 50 minutes, but that is because it is a long process and I wanted to be sure you got to see everything. There is nothing worse than trying to follow a recipe, and having a step truncated or skipped for time constraints. On the bright side, I put 5 15-20 second commercials with Uhn-Cletus in the episode to break it up!
Enjoy… and wait until you taste this!
