Tiramisu with A Twist

Tiramisu is a coffee-flavoured Italian dessert that is made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar and mascarpone cheese, flavoured with cocoa. This dessert is the ultimate comfort food for my family irrespective of the occasion. Thus, sharing my eggless version of tiramisu made with sponge cake and cream cheese.
