The Italian Tiramisu means “pick me up” or “make me happy”, and nothing makes me happier than the kick I get out of the caffeine from the espresso and cocoa powder, the two dominant flavors in this dessert.
Tiramisu is not a difficult dessert. It's just an assembling of ingredients and the taste entirely depends on the quality of these ingredients. I've split the recipe into three parts: the sabayon, the body of mascarpone with sugar, and whipped cream and whipped egg whites. Simple!
