TWD Chocolate Cream Tarte and Tiramisu Cake

Last week I was just finishing my job so I couldn't bake this wonderful tarte but here it is !
I really liked it and with a bit of planning it isn't hard to make at all ! Thanks to Kim of Scrumptious Photography who chose the wonderful recipe !



Then it came the Tiramisu chosen by Megan of My Baking Adventures and I changed it a bit because I had forgotten the cream so I used a cup of greek yogurt instead (making it a bit leaner too) . Usually I make Tiramisù with mascarpone and a kind of zabaione (so the yolks are cooked) and I missed the zabaione flavour but the cake was a hit at my mum's house ! Thank you Megan ! Please visit the TWD blogroll to check all the others Tiramisù.

They both look beautiful! The yogurt was a good idea to make it a little bit healthier.

I haven't made tiramisu in ages. Yours sounds delicious and I like it so much but my daughter doesn't like the taste of coffee.

Natalia, you just gave me an idea...what do you think about combining the chocolate pastry cream with the tiramisu, maybe as a filling?

I think both of these look WAY better than the tasty but homely desserts I made. I agree, must be the Italian genes!

See, I couldn't do that because I would eat them both - all by myself!

Natashya said...

Beautiful cake! That would be worth travelling to Italy for.

Natalia,
indovina chi ho intravisto oggi davanti al suo negozio? Tyler....e ho dovuto tenermi dall'uscire dalla macchina e raccontargli del vostro gruppo, e di te. Non volevo montargli la testa ancora di piu'.

Scherzi a parte, mio figlio era molto interessato al fatto che mi hai detto che tuo marito e' geloso di Tyler Florence e non capiva che dicendoti che l'ho visto ti avrei preso in giro.

CIAO!

I'm sure the tiramisu would be so delicious with the zabaione, but this way it was healthier, right? And that chocolate tart is one of my very favorite Dorie recipes! Great job making them both.
