Recipe: Tiramisu Cake

This is a great cake because it tastes like tiramisu but also this recipe has a FANTASTIC cake base. The base of the cake is made pretty differently from how I’m used to making cake and uses a ton of eggs in order to get its lift but it makes such a nice, springy cake that it’d be great for many other uses.
