Tiramisu

Love coffee, chocolate and make ahead dessert?? Then here is a dessert for you – Tiramisu!!!! Tiramisu is a very popular, decadent Italian dessert. Made a non alcoholic, eggless and no bake version of this dessert which is a quick make recipe. The lady fingers are readily available in the market, so all you need to do is bring the ingredients together and assemble them and refrigerate. Very easy !!!
This cake tastes best when made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator. All the flavors come together as they soak in them for few hours. Tiramisu has intense flavor of the coffee, and is mildly sweet, which makes it perfect to eat it any time of the day. The light and creamy texture of the mascarpone cheese is such a treat, as it gently melts in your mouth. Every bite entices you to eat more :).
