Tiramisu Cupcake – ethereal chiffon cake drenched with coffee syrup and topped with Kahlua-spiked cream flecked with grated chocolate. Price available upon request.
who doesn’t love tiramisu?
This is my take on the beloved Italian dessert—a cupcake form. Though the form is different, I did not stray too much from the traditional flavor which includes cream, espresso and chocolate. It is also a bit heady due to the addition of Kahlua, a coffee-flavored liqueur.
The potent and rich flavor of tiramisu is so popular that you can also find it reincarnated in ice cream, cheesecake, blended coffee and even pizza. Recipe variations also include “new” ingredients such as strawberries, green tea, eggnog, and Nutella, the luscious hazelnut spread. I wonder what Italians have to say about the ever evolving twist in their much loved dessert?
