I love walking inside the supermarket. Do you think that's strange? It doesn't matter which supermarket it was or how many times I've been there but I always feel excited like a little girl in a toy store. When I was in Netherlands, I saw this Tiramisu dessert in a cup at C1000 supermarket. From then on, I was hooked. Everytime we go to there, I'd always get a box of 2 and stuff my face each day with a cup. Luckily, my boyfriend liked the other Limoncello flavor so I had the Tiramisu ALL TO MYSELF. They were so good, every pound I gained was totally worth it!
I've never been a big fan of any liqueur and I hate the taste of any alcoholic drink but there's just something so addictive about Tiramisu. The blend of coffee with just a small amount of coffee liqueur soaked in a sponge cake topped with whipped cream with just a slight hint of cream cheese dusted with grated chocolate or cocoa powder sends me to heaven. I have a confession. I'm embarrassed to admit that I've never ever tried mascarpone cheese. Traditional tiramisu recipes use mascarpone but since a small imported tub here is insanely expensive at 500 pesos (about 11-12 dollars or so), one has to look for more practical options.
I stumbled upon this recipe at Chef Chloe. Though her recipes are vegan, you'd never tell from the taste and look of it. I've used her recipes many times and if you follow the measurements and directions carefully, they're pretty much fail-proof too.
