After my double bass lesson today, I met up with JY.
JY has been very kind to travel all the way to a place that was nearby where I was having my double bass classes to pass me the pseudo-tiramisu that she has made! I could not help but take a photo of it as a momento. (Pardon me, I have taken a few spoons of it before taking the photo. I wanted to show the biscuit-layer.)
It tasted nice. I particularly like the layer containing the the zabaglione cream. I like the generous serving of cocoa powder on on the surface layer. Overall, the pseudo-tiramisu was rich and heavenly.
Instead of Savoiardi, JY had used what appears to be made up of the same ingredients as those found in the base of cheese-cake. I think it is a pleasant and refreshing idea to have such base.
To be awfully critical, perhaps the biscuits that made up the base of the pseudo-tiramisu felt a little too dry and coarse for my liking. Having a layer of Savoiardi in between the biscuit-base and upper layer of zabaglione cream may help the pseudo-tiramisu to be less dry at its base.
JY was also very thoughtful to include a spoon in the container containing the pseudo-tiramisu. I wasn't returning home after my double bass lesson so I would have to eat the pseudo-tiramisu some time after the double bass lesson. The spoon came in very handy.
Thank you JY for the delicious pseudo-tiramisu. I appreciate your kind and thoughtful gesture.
