Cake: Tiramisu

kept byaileeoops

Tiramisù means “pick-me-up” in Italian. I have taken the idea of sponge, liqueur, mascarpone, coffee and cocoa beans and created a delicious, rich (strictly for adults) cake perfect for a birthday celebration. Make the cake and filling ahead (even the day before), assembling it a couple of hours before it is served. Please make sure you use very strong coffee for this recipe; brew it twice as strong as usual.


* 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, really soft and diced, plus more for the pans
* 1 2/3 cups (scant) self-rising flour
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 1/8 cups unrefined superfine sugar
* 4 eggs, lightly beaten
* 2 tablespoons very strong black coffee (espresso or instant), cooled

* 1 cup (generous) mascarpone
* 3/4 cup (generous) heavy cream, very lightly whipped
* 1/4 cup light muscovado sugar or light brown sugar
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 3 tablespoons very strong black coffee (espresso or instant), cooled
* 3 tablespoons Tia Maria, dark rum, or Kahlúa
* 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
* 1 ounce 70% cocoa solids chocolate, finely grated
* 15 to 20 chocolate-covered coffee beans
