Eggless Tiramisu Cake
This cake especially made for my hubby’s birthday this year on 10th August. Since his birthday falls on Friday whereby special prayers will be held and all of us will be vegetarian on that day. I have no choice than baking an eggless cake. When I was browsing and looking for ideas, suddenly the idea of Tiramisu crossed in my mind. Well Tiramisu basically an Italian dessert alternating layers of saviordi fingers with whipped mixture of mascarpone cheese and egg yolks and flavored with coffee liquor. This mouthwatering dessert requires no baking. All you need to do is assemble everything together and chill. The research started one week earlier before his birthday. I have to make sure all the ingredients which Im going to use is free from egg. So happened to know saviordi fingers are made from eggs. Hmm need to substitute with eggless plain cake. Finally got the recipe for eggless sponge cake from tarladalal which later I modify with eggless coffee flavored sponge cake. I have prepared eggless version of tiramisu before this, unfortunately I forgot to jot down the recipe. I have to look again for the recipe. There are few recipes which attracted me. Finally I chose eggless recipe from Hunger Hunger guest post for Rasa Malaysia. Since I don’t prefer coffee liqueur, so normal coffee been used in this recipe. Cappucino emulco helps to bring some extra flavor in the cake. My husband really loves it. It was quiet surprise for him since he was wrongly predicted that Im going to bake carrot cake for him. Eggless carrot cake was my on going research which will be posted soon. I did brought some for my friends. They did not believe as they thought it was bought and I’m kidding. Last but not least myself was happy with the outcome and glad to share with everyone. Sorry this time my snaps not that clear cause my DSLR not with me at the moment. Please bear with me. Will update if happens bake Tiramisu again!
