I know this is not a fully proper tiramisu, but it really does capture the flavors. It is also so incredibly simple to make that I predict you'll be eating tiramisu at home much more often from now on.

Recipe Notes

If you want coffee flavor but not caffiene, you can of course use decaf, but coffee liqueur (such as Tia Maria) is slightly more indulgent.
