Olive Garden's Tiramisu Dessert

Serving Size: 6
Ingredients:
1 sponge cake - (10" to 12" dia, abt 3" tall)
3 ounces strong black coffee or instant espresso
3 ounces brandy or rum
1 1/2 pounds cream cheese or mascarpone -- room temperature
1 1/2 cups superfine or powdered sugar
Unsweetened cocoa powder

Cooking Directions:

Cut across middle of sponge cake forming two layers, each about 1 1/2 inches high. Blend coffee and brandy. Sprinkle enough of mixture over bottom half of cake to flavor it strongly. Don't moisten cake too much or it may collapse on serving.
Beat room-temperature cheese and 1 cup sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and cheese is light and spreadable. Test for sweetness during beating, adding more sugar if needed.
Spread cut surface of bottom layer with half of the cheese mixture. Replace second layer and top this with remaining cheese mixture. Sprinkle top liberally with sifted cocoa. Refrigerate cake for at least 2 hours before cutting and serving.
This recipe yields 6 servings.

everyone is upset when a recipe isn't what they wanted. There's a reason you use a recipe, so you get what you want. When you stop eating garbage and eat some real food maybe you'll understand you ignorant judgmental fool.
