With “Game Day” (Super Bowl Sunday) just around the corner, I figured sharing one of my favorite recipes was very much needed. And even if you’re not a football fan, you still need to try this!
Tiramisu, Italian, from the phrase tirami su translates to “pick-me-up”. It is a popular Italian dessert made with coffee and liquor-soaked layers of sponge cake alternating with mascarpone cheese and chocolate. The recipe has been adapted into many varieties of cakes and other desserts. Its origins are often disputed between Italian regions such as Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Piedmont, and others. It is believed to have been created in the 1960s.
