Tiramisu (tih-ruh-mee-SOO) – The Italian translation for tiramisu is “carry me up.”  Also known as Tuscan Trifle.  Tradition tiramisu is a pudding-like dessert that usually consists of sponge cake or ladyfingers dipped in a liqueur, then layered with grated chocolate and rich custard.  Tiramisu was originally made as a loose custard.  It is only in recent years that using mascarpone cheese has come into fashion.
