LIMONCELLO TIRAMISU !

I know many of you are Chocoholics out there, and rightly so, but if you want something equally as decadent, and a little different than the norm, try this sinfully delicious Limoncello Tiramisu!! This is definitely for very special occasions, when you want to Wow your certain someone with a special dessert. The one I made was meant to be shared by two, because of its size. But you can certainly make smaller, individual ones. The main characters consist of pound cake that is drenched in Limoncello, a homemade lemon curd, all layered with Mascarpone and whipped cream!! Need I say more??

In a pan place the juice and zest of 3 lemons seeds and all, you’re going to strain it. 1 Tbl. short of a whole stick of butter, 6oz. of sugar, and 3 whole eggs. Whisk everything on med low just till bubbles start to show. Strain with a fine mesh strainer.

Next, take your pound cake and cut it to fit the size of your glass, I used a biscuit cutter.

Now take your bottle of Limoncello, and drench your pound cake pieces, you could use either a homemade, or a good quality store bought one. Just use a basic pound cake recipe if you make it, you want to be sure to taste the Limoncello.


Make sure it’s soaked!!
Finally, start whipping up a small carton of heavy cream, when you have stiff peaks, add a small container of room temperature Mascarpone, beat together just till incorporated.
Assemble it by layering all the components together in a pretty glass, and topping it off with some lemon peel.


Words cannot describe Hubby’s face when he took his first spoonful, I think he said “OMG!!!”

And for that reason, this post will be my entry for the Serindipity Bake Off which is hosted by Amy, of Familia Bencomo with the help of The Soapchix. Check them out you still have time to submit something, deadline is the 29th.

Note** You can also layer this in a glass 9×12 pan, or a glass loaf pan.

Enjoy!!

  31. Hi Diana, I bet you were a big hit with your boyfriend last night! The Godfather and tiramisu! Oh, what a night! So glad you liked it!

  32. What a nice twist on tiramisu. I will try it this weekend with my homemade limoncello.

  33. I can’t wait to try this! I love lemoncello. You didn’t mention adding any sugar to the whipped cream, is that correct, just straight cream and cheese?

    Flavourful wishes,
    Claudia
