15 min Tiramisu

Its been a while since I have posted any recipe. I have been so preoccupied with my travel tales that I almost forgot about this section of my blog. Guilty as charged, today I thought to post a recipe instead of another post in the Trip Of Lifetime series. Such an easy peasy one it is. You just need to think about making it and you are done with it in 15 minutes literally. So lets get down to the business…

About Tiramisu: It (meaning “pick me up”, “cheer me up”,”wake me up” or “lift me up”) is a popular coffee-flavored dessert.
