Tiramisu Sandwich

Labels: , ,


It was love at first sight bite when I had tiramisu over 22 years ago. Soft lady fingers soaked in strong coffee nestled in rich zabaglione and mascarpone cheese cream flavored with marsala (or rum) then lightly dusted with dark cocoa; what's not to love? 

Unfortunately, I have also tasted some truly awful ones using chocolate cake as the base. Chocolate cake!!! Yuck!! Sorry for my excessive use of exclamation points but it's one of the reasons I make my own tiramisu. And thanks to our lovely hosts for February, Abigail and Marni for giving me another excuse to make them again, this time with a touch of Filipino flavors.

Inspired by Yummy magazine online, I made 'tiramisandwiches'. The slightly sweetened mascarpone and heavy cream filling doesn't have egg nor marsala for a lighter treat but I added a small amount of lambanog to the brewed coffee for a bit of kick. To complete the Filipino version of tiramisu I used broas and grated a little tablea on top. Love at first bite...again. ♥♥♥

Tiramisu Sandwich
1 cup strong brewed coffee, cooled
1 tablespoon lambanog or marsala
½ cup mascarpone cheese
1 cup whipped heavy cream
2 tablespoon powdered sugar
1 tablea
  • In a flat container, stir together coffee and lambanog. In a small bowl beat together mascarpone cheese, heavy cream, and sugar until fully combined. Transfer into a pastry bag; snip half an inch opening. Dip just the bottom of one broa in coffee mixture, fill with cream, dip another broa, and top the filled one to make a sandwich. Grate tablea on top and all over the plate, if desired. Enjoy with a cup of strong espresso or barako.
