This is a delicious, light version of tiramisu. I say light because some recipes call for egg yolks which seems unnecessary. I brew a strong cup of coffee instead of using instant coffee. I've also used Aztec coffee liqueur instead of the more expensive Kahlua and it works just as well. I also only do two layers. It really depends on the dish you're using (I use a standard glass baking dish). A friend of mine who is a food connoisseur says this is the best tiramisu he's ever had. Enjoy!

Very, very good! Instead of using coco powder I ginded up some chocolate chips! This was definitely a crowd pleaser!

I have made these a few times and it is wonderful. I am not not sure how anyone can say it is not. Different tastes I guess but my picky 8 year old loves it too!
