“I know that there are already plenty of tiramisu recipes here on zaar. I've been making this one for years. Having it on zaar means I can add it to my shopping list, which is great! It freezes well and can easily be increased. Your serving dish should be of such a size that it holds ca 75g (2 5/8 ounces) ladyfingers in a single layer.”
