Bake hazelnuts and almonds in the oven. Select a bowl that you will use for the cake and place the entire interior and transparent foil. Mix wine and coffee. Melting briefly biscuits in them and ordinal in the bottom and sides of the bowl. Beat the cream with a mixer, chop nuts and cherries, grate the chocolate and add in the cream. Stir the mixture and divide in two. Pour over biscuits ordered white mixture and then spread on the walls. To the remaining mixture add melted chocolate and mix. Pour the brown mixture in the middle of the white. Cover with biscotti. Leave tiramisu in the refrigerator for two hours. After removing from the refrigerator turn it on a flat tray. Sprinkle with cocoa and powdered sugar. * Instead blend espresso and wine melting biscuits I used syrup 2 cups water, 1 and 1/2 cup sugar 1 tsp vanilla and 2 cognac. In this case, my cake became more cake than tiramisu. * Also instead of candied cherries used fresh strawberries (about 6-7 large strawberries). * My bowl had a diameter of 21 cm.

Chrissy, congratulations! Submitted their own view recipe and give a good idea. With the first cursory reading recipe seemed complicated, but looking at the pictures, everything became immediately clear.

Thanks. Actually to me first I saw hard looking recipe, but in reality is quite simple and only took me an hour to make it.

Very nice pictures and recipe. Bravo! I liked determined. Tsukototo a Tuscan specialty and its name means a large pumpkin :) is not necessarily tiramisu. This is no less the recipe, on the contrary a very good deal. Santo wine is slightly sweet dessert wine with amber color, typical of Tuscany and served with Kantuchini. You successfully think to replace it.

Well done, Chris. This tiramisu love it. Accurately and in detail describe their preparation.

How big is the package biscuits?

My package is 300 grams and came to me exactly, but it all depends on the size of the cup.
