Tiramisu Cake

Angela Nair


This is a lovely cake - and does not use sponge ladyfinger biscuits. I always make a square Tiramisu, it makes for easier handling and slicing! But you you can use two round cake pans if you like!
Dust the tops with cocoa powder and chocolate curls or simply serve as is.
This recipe can be made two days ahead and stored in a refrigerator.
