      Made tiramisu for the first time last week. Felt nice to be using espresso extracted from home roasted beans. Instead of double espresso shots, I think that next time I'll be dipping the savoiardi biscuits in more of a long black equivalent. The tiramisu was incredibly strong espresso wise (I really liked it, but my standard coffee is a double ristretto). I think that at least one guest found it a bit challenging.

          Don't have a photo but the missus makes triple-choc-espresso brownies with espresso creamcheese frosting that have the guys at the pub putting aside their beer to get a taste of...

                  Well, I "invented" something, nearly (should I admit this?) 50 years ago. Waaay before I had an espresso machine at home - had a moka pot, then an Atomic, can't remember the year.
                  A friend of ours owned a coffee lounge. Every time we went there, he'd put me in service, pulling shots. Anyway, when the place quieted down a bit, I used to fill a glass with whipped cream and pulled a double "short black" over it. Very slimming! Some people saw me do it and wanted some too. :-)

                    Not sure what became of the 'baking with coffee' thread, but it had a ripper recipe for coffee cheesecake... only enhanced by replacing the plain biscuit base with Arnott's choc ripple biscuits and ~20g of ground coffee

                      My feeling is you cant beat a good vanilla slice! Just so happens this recipe was in todays SMH, ok, no coffee, but, they are seriously good.

                        Ok. Tiramisu was a success. Doesn't look pretty but fresh good espresso sure makes a difference... Yummy

                          So, that looks identical to the tiramisu I made at mine in Hobart. Same dish, same benchtops, freakin' me out right now. /twilight-zone

                          Looks freaking delicious though...

                              Made a double batch of the taste.com.au tiramisu recipe last night (forgetting how much it makes)... I was about to use a mate's Europiccola until I realised exactly how long it was going to take to do 4 cups worth of strong long black with something that pours 20ml shots from an 11g basket.

                              Made french-press, which was really nice, but I think I preferred it last time with the espresso.

                              Kwantfm, I reckon it'd be strong using straight shots... dayum.
