    Nadine81's Note:

    I went through EVERY tiramisu recipe on the site, and this one is different and is definitely worth trying. I had a Swiss Au Pair when I was a child and she taught me this recipe. I have made it every Christmas since from memory and this is the first time I've written it down, I usually guess quantities. If there was one recipe that I hope my kids will learn and pass on to future generations its this one! I use any spirits that are in my cabinet at the time of making so use whatever alcohol you like or leave it out if you prefer. I use a large trifle bowl.
