What Is Tiramisú?

One of the most popular desserts that originated in Italy in the late 1960s is the tiramisú. It has a soft texture and utilizes Italian custard to give it a sweet and delicious taste. The dessert also has a strong contrasting flavor from the addition of a cocoa powder and espresso-flavored mixture. The word tiramisú means “pick me up” in Italian so there is no surprise that there is a strong presence of espresso found in this dessert. If you’re fond of the taste of espresso then you will surely love this dessert even more! However, due to the content of espresso, it is not commonly known to be a dessert for most children. Instead, we recommend keeping this dessert in the hands of adults.
