I did it -I joined the Daring Bakers community. My very first challenge is everyone's favorite afternoon pick-me-up. Tiramisu! I love tiramisu so much. This is the second time I've made it this year.
I'll admit that one part of the challenge was not something I understood very well upon first blush. Specifically when I read the words "...make your own mascarpone cheese..."
Luckily, making the cheese was very easy. And henceforth I will probably always make my own mascarpone cheese. It takes less time than you'd think and cuts the expense of pre-packaged mascarpone nearly in half! I'm all for that!
The February 2010 Daring Bakers' challenge was hosted by Aparna of My Diverse Kitchen, and Deeba of Passionate About Baking. They chose Tiramisu as the challenge for the month. Their challenge recipe is based on recipes from The Washington Post, Cordon Bleu at Home and Baking Obsession.
