Three layers tiramisu cheesecake with soft crust, baked coffee cheesecake and sweet tiramisu mousse. If you are a coffee lover this dessert is definitely for you. One of the best cheesecakes I’ve ever made. It is not so sweet; I don’t like very…very sweet desserts. Moderate sugar is enough for me.
I love cheesecakes. I will always choose instead of brownies or any other dessert. I’ve never had problem to bake them. They are always success for me. Maybe this is my type of desserts. When I moved to US from Europe I quickly discovered cheesecake made with cream cheese. I was invited to a party and there was my first American cheesecake that I tried. I got in love right away. I still like them so much.
It is not difficult to make this gorgeous tiramisu cheesecake … it just requires a little time and preparation. First, the bottom crust has to be baked, then second layer of tiramisu cheesecake has to be baked, and in the end sweet coffee flavored cheesecake mousse needs to be added. Try it! You will be amazed how it tastes!
I’ve made this tiramisu cheesecake many times before: for Church fundraising, party or just to eat at home. However, recently I thought about sharing it on the blog. I just totally forgot about this sweet coffee flavored dessert. I know there are many different versions of tiramisu. But I think that tiramisu cheesecake is the simplest. After baking, I sprinkled the top of this sweet dessert with cocoa powder.
