This week's Tuesday With Dorie revolves around Dorie's delicious Tiramisu Cake, and was chosen by Megan of My Baking Adventures. I have made the Tiramisu Cake once before (I think it was the first thing that I ever made out of BFMHTY), but was happy to make it again, without any alterations, for a brand new audience. Unfortunately, there is no special occasion involved - other than TWD, of course.
My previous comments about this cake really sum up my thoughts. In making it, I used instant coffee powder instead of expresso powder, and it worked just fine. For the alcohol component, I used brandy. Luckily, marscapone is readily available in the supermarkets here, so I didn't have to make any substitutions (unlike some TWDers, who had the challenge of finding a substitute for marscapone). Although I thought it would be fun to do cupcakes second time around, I really didn't have the time up my sleeve (I left it until Monday night before posting to make it!), although I understand that a few TWDers did try this.
The finished cake looks like a huge cappucino - which is very cool for a coffee flavoured cake.
