This Thai Tea Tiramisu was apart of my submission to IL Desco’s Italian Dinner Competition.
The competition post is here.
What is there to say? This dessert speaks for itself. You have seen tiramisu on every Italian menu and Iced Thai tea on every Thai menu. I simply put them together. There are a few differences though
Traditional Tiramisu in America
- Uses espresso and Marsala wine
- Sweetened with sugar
- Topped with coco powder
Thai Tea Tiramisu
- Uses strong brewed Thai tea
- Sweetened with condensed milk
- Topped with cinnamon and white chocolate
As you may know, tiramisu means “pick me up” in Italian. What you may not know is that this dessert is rumored to have originated from Treviso, Italy; In a restaurant named Le Beccherie. Above this restaurant was a brothel. Do you see where I’m going with this?
Tiramisu is said to have been created to fuel the “activities” that went on. It makes sense if you think about it. Let’s look at what is in a traditional tiramisu again…
- Alcohol: Liquid Courage!
- Caffeine: Energy!
- Chocolate: Aphrodisiac?
It’s pretty straight forward. These are all building blocks to se…um…several different activities.
Although my Thai tea tiramisu is missing all of that, it is still oh so very seductive. It’s like eating a Thai tea flavored cloud! Imagine spiced Thai tea soaked Savoiardis…caressed by sweetened condensed milk custard…blanketed by white chocolate flakes…married into a very dreamy bite! Did you imagine something like the picture below?
This has the texture similar to cotton candy! It just dissolves. If you want to have a creamier bite, then I have included instructions below. Give this a try and improve your chances of getting some……praise!
