Easy Tiramisu Recipe with Pound Cake

This recipe might not be for the hard-core Tiramisu lovers. Instead of ladyfingers (I can never find them when I look at the grocery store) it has pound cake, instead of coffee liqueur it has brewed coffee and instead of mascarpone cheese, it uses cream cheese. It’s a great recipe when you can’t find those hard-to-find ingredients that I hope will satisfy the Tiramisu fans out there.

What is Tiramisu?

  • Tiramisu is an Italian dessert that usually has some form of coffee or espresso, a liquor, ladyfingers, whipped mixture, cocoa, and mascarpone cheese
