To serve for an elegant dessert on a loaf dish, or even as a yule log cake for Christmas, why not an easy and tasty tiramisu?
It can be done in advance which is quite interesting. I suggest the tiramisu in a mold and unmold it on a plate before serving and sprinkle it with cocoa powder.
I know that you’re going to tell me that tiramisu is not French, but the French absolutely love tiramisu and bake some very often, and Italy is not that far away isn’t it?
