Tiramisu

Tiramisu is my mom’s favourite dessert. It also happens to be a dessert that I am very afraid of making (or used to be, anyway). This is because one of the first things I’ve ever made was tiramisu, but back then I substituted cottage cheese [unstrained, genius that I am] for mascarpone (!), left out a couple of eggs here and there (!!), did not know how to properly dip ladyfingers in coffee (!!!), and substituted hot chocolate powder for cocoa powder (!!!!). That tiramisu was a gooey disaster that refused to set.

Buttermilk Cluster

Clusters of pillowy, soft rolls, I’ll say. This buttermilk cluster will be an attractive addition at holiday gatherings, and compared to other breads, this is relatively easy to make and fun to eat – best enjoyed by pulling the rolls apart, while they’re still warm from the oven. They stayed nice and soft the next day too.
