Creamy dessert called "pick me up cake". Coffee flavor and ameretto are the stars of this cake.

Top Review by Cat R.

This is a perfectly nice, easy to pull together tiramisu. The recipe reduced down to a third well (there's just 2 of us eating it, and I only had half a cup of cream around). When I make tiramisu again, I'll make sure my sponge fingers are properly soggy; they must be less absorbant than lady fingers. I might also flavour the mascarpone cheese/egg mixture as well. Thanks for sharing the recipe JudesP!
