One of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make in your life - this is really just tiramisu without the lady fingers. There are many versions of this throughout Italy. Sometimes ground espresso, sugar and rum or brandy are passed around instead of mixed in and everyone adds what they like but sometimes presentation is important.
