Author's Comments

This tiramisù will bring lots of love to your table.

Please note that I prefer to serve this tiramisù in two bowls for larger dinner parties, as it will allow each end of the table to have their own bowl. Serve as you deem appropriate.

Buon appettito!

what do you do with the egg yokes?

You may either discard the egg yolks, or save them to use in another recipe, such as a Caesar salad dressing.
