Tiramisu is an elegant dessert loved by all. With layers of light, luscious cream, cakey, espresso-soaked lady fingers, and a touch of chocolate, what’s not to enjoy? Tiramisu is creamy, fluffy, and cloud-like. It evokes a feeling of indulgence and luxury. Presenting this layered beauty for dessert is sure to impress any dinner guest. Plus, it’s not an offensive dessert. It doesn’t involve any ingredients that people typically dislike. Therefore, you can always count on it to be a crowd-pleaser.
Like any delicious dessert, it’s always fun to play around and see what tantalizing twists you can create. This light and heavenly Pumpkin Tiramisu resulted from my love for two things: pumpkin and, of course, tiramisu. When the thought occurred to me to combine the two, it was one of those moments where you hit yourself on the head and ask, “Why didn’t I think of that before?”
It just makes so much sense! Any food that can fuse together two delicious entities into one super-dish is sure to be a winner, and this Pumpkin Tiramisu is no exception. There was some question in my mind as to how pumpkin would taste with espresso. This problem was easily resolved. Instead of soaking the lady fingers in espresso, you soak them in delicious apple cider! Not only are these flavors incredible together and completely ideal for Fall, but it also ensures that eaters of all ages will enjoy this dessert. Kids don’t always love coffee. But apple cider? Now that’s a different story.
