Lemon Blueberry Tiramisu
Tiramisu. The word alone makes me salivate with excitement!
I’ve always been a huge fan of desserts that consist of layers. Whether it’s a chocolate trifle, the rich, yet painstakingly involved, Baklava, or those sweet 7-layer bars. However, there’s something about Tiramisu that just makes it irresistible.
Is it the creamy mascarpone filling?
Is it the light and pillowy ladyfingers?
Or is it just the sweet melding of flavors and textures that come together in perfect harmony?
Whatever it is, it’s AMAZING! So I decided to create a spin on the Italian classic by incorporating my favorite summertime duo into those wonderful layers.
Behold the Lemon Blueberry Tiramisu!
Not to toot my own horn or anything, but man was this a good idea! First, you have those wonderful light-as-air ladyfingers soaked with a homemade blueberry syrup. Then you have that beautifully tart, yet smooth layer of lemon curd. And finally, there’s the sweet, yet not overly sweet, and creamy texture of the white chocolate mascarpone filling. Yes, I said WHITE CHOCOLATE. I couldn’t stop myself!
Lemon and blueberry go together like Paula Deen and butter! You can’t go wrong when you combine these two flavors. You just can’t! And when white chocolate joins the party...whoa, man! Whoa!
You don’t even have to be a fan of Tiramisu to love this recipe. It may have a lot of the elements of Tiramisu, but there’s definitely a difference in flavors. Instead of coffee and chocolate, you have lemon and blueberry!
