Beeramisu? Yes, please!

Apparently, it’s Guinness Week at Serious Eats and I approve. If you know me, you know I
So, needless to say, I was very happy to see that it’s Guinness Week at Serious Eats – my favorite food blog. This recipe for “Beeramisu” looks incredible. Take my favorite beer and my favorite dessert and combine them and it looks like you’ve got heaven. I’m pretty psyched to try this out – I may actually do it Wednesday night so we can enjoy it for dessert on St. Patrick’s day. I’ll be sure to post a follow up if/when I do try it out.

But for now, I’ll just stare at the picture and drool.

Guinness Week: Beeramisu


This take on Tiramisu strays pretty far from the traditional. It calls for Guinness and Irish Cream instead of coffee and Marsala, but the requisite creamy, soft layers will surely please anyone crazy for this Italian dessert.

This version also leaves out the egg-based zabaglione, which means it’s seriously easy to put together. But take note, this dessert is best if it hangs out in the fridge overnight so it can properly set up and really go to town soaking those ladyfingers.

Like coffee would, the Guinness adds a hint of bitterness to balance the sweetness, and its malty, chocolatey, coffee notes are the perfect pair with sweet Irish Cream and smooth mascarpone.
