Tiramisł means "pick me up" and aptly describes an Italian dessert made from lady fingers[?], espresso coffee, mascarpone[?] cheese, egg whites, sugar, and marsala wine. The biscuits are sprinkled with strong coffee and the marsala, and then embedded in a thick rich custard. Sometimes chocolate is also used, but that is not traditional.

In Australia, particularly over the past few years, it has become one of the most popular types of dessert served in restaurants. The recipe has been adapted into cakes, puddings and other varieties of dessert made with coffee-flavoured custard.
