offee lovers, today is your day! I’m making super yummy no-bake gluten free cappuccino tiramisu cake!
What is Tiramisu?
is a layered dessert, often considered a cake, that is primarily flavored with coffee. It is typically made by soaking finger biscuits in coffee that may be mixed with a liqueur. Lady fingers are then arranged in a dish so that a mascarpone mixture can be layered on top. Word tiramisu derived from the Venetian dialect “Tirame su” which means “pick me up”, often thought to be referring to the energy boosting caffeine and sugar content. There are several legends about the birth of the tiramisu. Some say that it was conceived in Piedmont by a Turinese chef to support Camillo Benso Count of Cavour while performing his work of Italy ‘s reunification.
Even further back in time it is said that the tiramisu was created in Tuscany around 1600, during the visit of Cosimo III de Medici in Siena. However, the two most commonly recognized regions of origin are Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto. Most of the theses attribute, in fact, the paternity of the “tiramesù” to the city of Treviso, where, sometime in the 1960s, at the restaurant “Alle Beccherie” the pastry maker Roberto Linguanotto made it for the first time. However, many disagree – like the towns of Tolmezzo and Pieris of San Canzian d’Isonzo, claiming the origin of this dessert. And again, as it is usual in the world of sweetness, nobody knows for sure where, when, how and by whom a certain dessert was invented, so we can only wonder and – enjoy!

Now, today I’m making a bit different tiramisu! Instead of lady fingers, I’ll make a chocolate cookie crust, and no, I will not soak it with coffee! Nope, I’ll do better and make an additional layer of pure sweetness – a cappuccino mousse! Yummy! So, let’s get to work and make one hell of a ‘pick me up’ – my lovely no-bake, gluten free cappuccino tiramisu cake! :)
