Bring us all the tiramisu!
I know it feels like FOREVER since I last posted a recipe for you all! I have been so incredibly occupied these days and unfortunately, was on a roller coaster of a ride in the month of December. Finally, after what felt like a never-ending nightmare, I am back-in-action, and can once again be 100% committed to maintaining my blog! YAY me! 🙂
I don’t know about all of you but I am NOT a coffee drinker at all. I find that it intensifies my anxiety symptoms and causes me to bounce off the wall with hyperactivity. You see, I have a naturally hyper personality which most of the time, needs toning down. However, I do enjoy the taste of coffee and find myself craving it from time-to-time. Now tea on the other hand is a different story! I am pretty sure I drink more than I should on a regular basis but being Middle Eastern, that’s quite expected and normal :).
I love enjoying desserts with my tea and am always looking for new things to make at home. Recently, I wanted to try my hand at making tiramisu…not the healthy kind that I am going to share with you now but the traditional kind–you know, the one that uses heavy cream and lady fingers. However, given the fact that I pretty much ate my weight in food over the holidays, I decided I needed to tone it down and go healthy instead.
This was one of those rare occasions that I craved coffee so I figured, why not add it a healthy dessert the whole family can enjoy? Brilliant. I have to admit, although you can taste the coffee, it isn’t as strong as I would have liked. I think in the future, I would probably use instant coffee for a more intense flavor. But for now, feel free to use this recipe and tweak it to your liking!
