Comments about Balconi Tiramisu:
I fell in love with Tiramisu the first time that I tried it in a restaurant. I have been on a search for a comparable Tiramisu since then. **Balconi Tiramisu** is one of those stops along the way. Although, Balconi's version is not the final destination of my search, it is worth mentioning for a number of reasons.
If you have never tried Tiramisu, it is an Italian cake that is made with layers of sponge cake, mascarpone cheese and coffee cream fillings- dusted with cocoa. Depending on the recipe, it may be soaked in coffee or coffee flavoring.
Balconi Tiramisu is rich, moist and flavorful. It comes in an air-tight plastic container that is enclosed in an airtight packaging that lasts for months. I bought my last cake on May 22nd and the expiration date is November 30, 2009. Because of that, it can be kept on hand for unexpected guests or a quick dessert.
The cake comes in a 17.6 ounce size that gives six servings at 320 calories [150g fat] each. The dessert is high in sugars [28g] but, it is, after all, a dessert. The cakes are made in Italy, just outside of Milan.
Although the Balconi cake is not the best I have ever eaten, it is a great way to satisfy a craving at an inexpensive price.
