This was better than I expected. I wound up substancially modifying the recipe, but it was fabulous anyway. I wanted the tiramisu to be edible for all my dinner guests, including a pregnant woman. I cut the angel food cake into strips to mock ladyfingers, then beat the cream, marscapone, vanilla and sugar until fluffy. I added a fourth cup of strongly brewed decaf coffee to the marscapone mixture, and whipped it again. I then alternated layers of angelfood fingers, the marscapone mixture, and cinnamon sprinklings, topping it off with the last of the marscapone mix and cinnamon. I chilled for about an hour. This was a huge hit and I will definitely make it again!



This recipe turned out yummy - almost as good as the restaurants' with a few personal adjustments. I made it with 1/2 c. decaf coffee instead of the coffee liqueur and granules (pregnant women friendly). I also made it with cream cheese instead mascarpone cheese (couldn't find mascarpone cheese anywhere!). And it turned out fabulous! Thanks for this easy and delicious recipe!!



Wonderful results. Nice and easy to prepare. I added additional whipped cream and frosted the top of the cake. Final step: just before serving I dusted a little cocoa powder over the whipped cream. I like this recipe because "no" eggs were used. Results: smooth light taste....not a heavy dessert!
