Even people who thought they ate enough tiramisù in the ’80s to last them a lifetime love this dessert. It’s light, sophisticated, and not too sweet. What makes this tiramisù deliciously different is that the cake itself is flavored with coffee.

This was pretty labor intensive, but worth it. The cake with coffee in the batter is a great idea -- it was the easiest part, with the toughest task whisking the yolk mixture for the filling vigorously and constantly to get it thick. Even with a hand mixer, it didn't take as long as the recipe said to beat the yolks and whites for the cake, but it took a little longer for the filling. May try the electric hand mixer with whisk attachment to beat the filling next time. Recipe could be a little more specific -- for example, you only need to line the bottom of the cake sheet. And I was afraid to mix hot coffee into the yolks and sugar for the cake, worrried it might scramble the egg. As another reviewer suggested, I brushed the cake layers with additional liqueur as well as coffee. All in all, a dessert worthy of a special occasion, sure to get compliments.
Outstanding. I made this for a dinner party and not a crumb was left - second helpings all around. I loved that it could be made a day in advance. This is a recipe I'll definitely make again.
I have made this recipe several times and it's delicious! I can't wait to make it again for my hubby's Valentine/Birthday dinner.
Worked well. I used a round cookie cutter (to cut the sheet cake)& made individual desserts.Will use it again I'm sure.
