I love Tiramisu and so does my family and friends. So, here is my homemade Tiramisu with extra spices and kicks. This delicacy is coffee infused, creamy, and chocolate-y. Many people assume that Tiramisu is difficult to make because it is so expensive in the bakeries, but I have realized it was the mascarpone cheese that makes this cake pricey. However, once you have these ingredients, you can make many pans of Tiramisu. They are good for family and friends’ birthday, the super bowl party, or a romantic dessert for two. Please try this recipe and let me know what you think!

1. Make two cups of espresso and to it add 1 cup of Marsala wine, 1 tbsp Kahula, and 1 tbsp of Godiva Mocha.

3. Prepare a cold water bath in the sink in preparation for step 4
4. Place the egg mixture on double boiler and steam for 9-10 minutes, and stir frequently. Make sure the eggs do not cook. (I do not have a double boiler, so I placed a plate on top of pan of boiling water)
5. Place plate into the cold water bath to stop the cooking and continue to stir occasionally
