Do You Love Tiramisu? Check Out My Fast & Easy Recipe For the Best Homemade Tiramisu

One of the first things that I think of when I hear or read 'Italy' is Tiramisu. I just can't help it. Of course, Italy has much more to offer then just their delicious Tiramisu.

Tiramisu is the most well-known dessert, it simply is the crème de la crème!

Tiramisu was invented by a confectioner called Roberto Linguanotto while he was working in his restaurant 'Le Beccherie' in Treviso, Italy. People say that tiramisu has aphrodisiac effects and therefore was served in brothels in Trevisto.

The name tiramisu comes from tireme su, which is dialect of Treviso for 'pick me up'. In Italian it's tiramisu.
