Tiramisu Angel Food Cake consists of light airy layers of angel food cake, liquor infused espresso, creamy marscapone filling, and topped with chocolate curls is a favorite dessert recipe from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

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 Cake is a slice of heaven for the taste buds.

  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.
Liquor Infused Coffee

  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. Absolutely delicious.
    However my filling was to wet.

    1. Hi Uwe! Did the egg yolks thicken up and become light and airy? My first guess was the egg yolks weren't cooked long enough or my only other guess would be the whipped cream wasn't quite stiff enough before folding into the marscapone mixture. I hope that helps. The fillings pretty creamy but shouldn't be runny. Thanks, Serena
