One year ago I began this journey InDannysKitchen. A journey into a passion, a celebration of life and food. Food for the eyes, mouth, stomach and soul for myself and friends around the world . We can celebrate with dance or music but no celebration is complete without good food. Good food that makes your heart warm and creates lasting memories. To my family and friends around the world who have embraced InDannysKitchen, I thank you for being here to share this special day and everyday as we come together for the love of food.
No celebration is complete without a cake. When thinking of a cake to make for this special day I could not decide. Cheesecake and Tiramisu are my favorite desserts so I figured, why not combine both of them?
The decadent creaminess of cheesecake and the luxurious mascarpone and coffee infused savoiardi of tiamisu combined to make one great cake. Here we have the best of both worlds, fit for any special occasion.
2 8oz. packages of cream cheese, softened at room temperature
1 500g container of mascarpone cheese
