Made this last night for the Super Bowl game and it was absolutely perfect. I could not find lady fingers at my supermarket so I made the lady fingers in the Lady Fingers.
I pulsed granulated sugar in a food processor and used about 1/3 cup. I used coffee flavored vodka for the liqueur. Instead of freshly brewed coffee I used a high quality instant coffee 2 tablespoons per 2 cups of boiling water. I made individual desserts in wine goblets and quite frankly this dessert made me a rock star! Thanks Syrah.

This is delish! I sub quark because mascarpone doesn't make it to my remote corner of the world... so I added a smidge extra sugar and a starbucks via coffee packet to get the taste right. And Amaretto again all there is here. It was still super!

I made this for my girlfriend because she loves Tiramisu and this recipe was FANTASTIC! For my poor cooking skills, this was relatively easy to make. I dipped the (soft) lady fingers a little too much, so got soggy and fell apart in about 3 days, which was my only problem. But by that time we had devoured most of it because it's so delicious. I'll definitely be making this again sometime soon.

just finished making this for my potluck at school. im a culinary student so we all had to make something ourselves. I thought this would be nice and fresh and not too sweet. I had a bunch of cream left over so i made individuals for here at home and i tried one and it was DELISH! its my favorite desert and now i love it even more since i can make it on my own.

Amazing! This is the best tiramisu I've ever eaten. I've sampled tiramisu all over the world, but never had anything as good as this simple, from scratch, inexpensive version!! Unlike other posters, I think the amount of sugar is perfect.

We gave this a try and it was outstanding! Reminded us of Tiramisu we had in Italy. We made our own caster sugar and I would increase the amount to 1/3 cup. But sweetness is very much a personal taste. Looking forward to making this recipe again in the near future.

This is very similar to Delia Smith's tiramisu that I've made & absolutely loved. The only addition in Delia's recipe is that she adds 50 gms of chopped dark chocolate, divided in half and added on top of each of the two layers of mascarpone.

Awesome! I found the amount of coffee to be too much, unless I did something wrong. I ended up having to throw quite a bit out. I added a tsp of cinnamon in the cocoa for dusting @ also added a light layer of cocoa between layers. This is my first time making tiramisu, I hope my guests enjoy it. Tiramisu is one of my fav desserts! I could not find caster sugar anywhere so I put granulated sugar in a ziplock, and rolled w/a rolling pin. Next time I will probably use berry sugar, if unable to find caster. Yummy ......

I just made this last night. My first time making tiramisu and I'd looked through so many recipes trying to find one that seemed like a good one to try and decided on this one. I actually didn't have any caster sugar, so I used 1/4c of regular organic table sugar and the sweetness was perfect in my opinion. And I'm alcohol-free so I just made strong dark coffee to dip the lady fingers in. I loved it. It took me a while since it was my first time, but i definitely see myself making this over and over again in the future. Thanks a lot!

After perusing many recipes on the web for Tiramisu I choose this one. Doubled the recipe. Was not able to find caster sugar so I tweaked the filling to taste. Also, the same with the combination of strong coffee and coffee liquor. Tweaked it also to taste. Had four layers of lady fingers. Dusted each layer with cocoa powder and chocolate shavings. Delish!!! It was a hit. Made it the day before serving. Will definitely make again.
