Tiramisu Angel Food Cake

Tiramisu Angel Food Cake consists of light airy layers of angel food cake, liquor infused espresso, creamy marscapone filling, and topped with chocolate curls. serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com
If we go out to eat and Tiramisu's on the dessert menu it's almost always my guaranteed pick. Tiramisu is traditionally made with ladyfingers, but I used Angel Food Cake soaked in liquor infused espresso or strong coffee could be used, and then covered in creamy marscapone mixture that's hard to keep from eating straight out of the bowl. Tiramisu Angel Food Cake is best made at least 8 hours ahead of time so the flavors can mingle in the fridge but an overnight is even better. It holds up exceptionally well made a day ahead of time. 

In Italian Tiramisu translates into "pick me up" and this dessert is sure to pick you up at the end of the day. Tiramisu Angel Food Cake is a slice of heaven for the taste buds.

In the top of a double boiler or in a heat safe bowl over a saucepan with simmering water, add 5 whole Egg Yolks, 1 1/2 tablespoons Dark Rum, and 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar. Beat mixture until light, airy, and pale yellow. It took about 6-8 minutes of whisking, and I was lucky enough Lorna volunteered to help whisk. You can alternatively use a hand mixer.

INSTRUCTIONS:

For Marscapone Filling / Frosting
  1. In the top of a double boiler or in a heat safe bowl over a saucepan with simmering water, add egg yolks, 1 1/2 tablespoons rum, and 3/4 cup sugar. Beat until light, airy, and pale yellow, with a whisk or hand blender. About 6-8 minutes by hand.

  3. Beat whipping cream until whipped.
  4. Fold whipping cream into marscapone mixture 1/3 at a time, until all whipping cream has been incorporated. Set mixture aside.
For Liquor Infused Coffee
  1. Mix all ingredients together until sugar is dissolved.
To Assemble Tiramisu Angel Food Cake
  1. Cut angel food cake in 3 equal layers. Set top two layers aside.
  2. Brush top of bottom layer of angel food cake with liquor infused coffee, cover with about 1/4 of marscapone filling, brush bottom of next layer with liquor infused coffee, and cover marscapone filling. Repeat with next layer.
  3. Brush tops and sides of angel food cake with remaining liquor infused coffee. Frost sides, inside, and top of cake. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
To Make Chocolate Curls
  1. Use a sharp vegetable peeler on the side of chocolate bar to create curls, and shavings. Chocolate curls best when firm but slightly softened, close to the point it leaves chocolate on your fingers. Make sure to keep fingers tucked to prevent cuts. Alternatively chocolate can be grated.
  2. Cover top of cake with chocolate curls, and serve.
