After craving this for so long I just had to try making it at home. I could have gotten all the ingredients I needed, Ladyfingers, Mascarpone cheese blah blah lol well for some reason Walmart didnt have Ladyfingers or Mascarpone cheese, soooo I improvised. Im preety sure the original Tiramisu taste way better than this quick clever version, sorry real tiramisu lovers, this will have to do. I usually just like taking shortcuts when making recipes.
This was easy and quick.
1 10oz Angel Food Cake
1 1/2 cups Philadelphia Cream Cheesecake Flilling
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 cup Copa De Oro Coffee Liqueur
1/2 cup White Chocolate Chips
1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
For the Coffee Liqueur frosting:
In a mixing bow, mix 2 tsp of the Coffee Liqueur and a teaspoon of vanilla, this will be the frosting for the cake. Set aside.
Slice accross the angel food cake, 4 slices. Drizzle coffee liqueur on top of the cake slices, do not soak! put just enough to moisten some of the cake.
The next step is to spread cheesecake filling onto the plate where the cake will be set(this is for preventing the cake from moving around as your spreading the filling and frosting). Spread cheesecake filling on top of every slice of cake. Stalk, spread filling, and stalk the cake until your done.
Spread the Coffee liqueur frosting all over the cake with a spatula or if you want to get fancy, pipe it and make it look perty!
To make the chocolate shavings I put the chocolate chips into a cheese grater and grated the chocolate.
Sprinkle chocolate shavings on top of the cake. Chilll in the fridge for 30 minutes or eat right away if you want, I won't stop you :)
For the photo with the slice of cake I sprinkled a bit more coffee liqueur but it was a bit much lol, I reccomend not to put too much cofee liqueur when you moisten the cake slices.
Its preety good!
Slice and enjoy!
