This is no regular Strawberry Tiramisu. Strawberry Shortcake and Tiramisu merge into the most delicious mashup yet: Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu.
I am so pleased to be guest blogging over at Better Homes and Gardens’ blog Delish Dish today and sharing a Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu HERE ! I adore Delish Dish and follow it regularly. And let’s face it, who isn’t familiar with BHG? They have some incredible recipes on their site that you must try. I actually picked their classic tiramisu recipe and decided to give it a fun Spring remix. I saw several renditions of strawberry tiramisu and even raspberry tiramisu but I thought giving it that shortcake twist would up the stakes even more.
Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu was the concept I came up with, and let’s just say this is a recipe I will be making again and again this Spring. And we already know how obsessed with Strawberry Shortcake I am so this was an easy call.
It is so easy, and it is such a lovely change from the traditional strawberry shortcake. Also it is a great change of pace from the classic tiramisu or even strawberry tiramisu. This Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu is the best of both worlds.
