Daring Bakers: Tiramisu

The February 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen and Deeba of Passionate About Baking. They chose Tiramisu as the challenge for the month. Their challenge recipe is based on recipes from The Washington Post, Cordon Bleu at Home and Baking Obsession.

Daring Bakers:Tiramisu

February is an insanely busy month for me and I knew that this challenge would require some time. There are many compenents to this dessert, but none were terribly difficult. I also got excited to try some new techniques including making my own cheese (the leftovers went great with blood oranges). This was my favorite Daring Bakers challenge since the pizza. The mascarpone was so easy and such a dream. It was smooth and creamy and I couldn't get enough. I normally don't like whipped cream, but mixed with mascarpone, pastry cream, and zabaglione, it transforms into something I can consume non-stop. I halved all the recipe parts and served it in these little wine glasses I love.

Nice!! I love me some tiramisu. I like that you put it in a glass to make it into an individual serving. Then again that wouldn't stop me from eating up two.
