zuppa inglese della nonna


this delicious light dessert is very similar to tiramisù but it is based on lighter ingredients. grandama prepared this often after heavy meals, we always enjoyed it as my children too. sometimes she prepared this with alkermes, but usually she preferred the coffee version. this is her original recipe.
