Brownie Tiramisu

When I was looking for an inspiration on Pinterest, a picture of a chocolate cake with white filling and ladyfingers dipped in coffee popped out. Therefore, I made my version of Brownie Tiramisu. Traditional brownie cake, which we bake, then apply a little bit of lemon tiramisu filling so the ladyfingers hold better. Then, we add ladyfingers dipped in coffee and the rest of the filing. As you know, I make tiramisu filling using heavy cream, mascarpone and a little bit of lemon zest so the filling has better taste and I avoid using eggs. The combination of American and Italian cuisine is great, dense chocolate brownie cake together with coffee ladyfingers is complemented with lovely filling.
