Pound Cake Tiramisu

It has been a while that i've posted something.Was bsy with eid chores, school re-opening; xams...uff...nw  settled down a bit... I was not here for a few days in between;went to Istanbul (Turkey) for a few days during Eid holidays. It was a nice place. It's the largest city in Turkey and second largest Metropolitan area in Europe by population. It's culinary culture includes a wide variety of tastes like Doners(shawarma in a different bread) which is served with Ayran (buttermilk) and Simit. Simit is one of the most traditional & common types of Turkish food.One can find simit at every hour of the day in bakeries and shops which sell baked flour goods. You also might encounter simit merchants with their glass pane wagons, walking along the city's bustling streets.You can have a luk at the picture at the end of ths page.


Now, coming to the recipe, it s so easy & yummy that anyone can make it . It's another version of Tiramisu. Pound cake is used instead of Saviordi biscuits. Being a great fan of Martha Stewart, ths recipe found its own way to ma kitchen.You can use any cakes here; I used Marbled Butter Cake.

Ingredients: (serves 8) ((I've made in 2 same dishes seen n ths picture with the same measurement))


U can use water instead of rum..


1 cup heavy cream
4 ounces bar cream cheese, room temperature
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup strong coffee or espresso, room temperature
1 loaf pound cake,preferably marbled, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1/4 cup shaved semisweet chocolate
Unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting


Method: 


In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat cream, cream cheese, and confectioners' sugar until combined. In a small bowl, combine coffee and rum/water.


In a 2-quart baking dish, lay half the cake slices in a single layer, trimming to fit. Brush with half the coffee mixture. Top with half the cream mixture and half the chocolate. Repeat. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hrs before serving.Dust top with cocoa powder while serving.
