Can you use instant coffee for this dessert? I don't drink coffee and therefore do not have a coffee maker. But, I love Tiramisu.

I have other tiramisu recipes that use instant and that works too. I think it depends on how much you love coffee :D
And have you tried the Tiramisu Anacapri? It's not as light as the white russian but in my opinion it is SOOOOOOOOOO much better!!!
My hubby would have it everyday if he could ;)

I made this last night.
It was so GOOD! It was really rich. I've never made any tiramisu recipes simply because I never had Kahlua on hand. I broke down and bought some and was glad I did!
It was also very easy. I made salmon for dinner, and while it was cooking, I prepared the tiramisu. I did soak some of the lady fingers a bit long, so I tossed 'em cause they got soggy.
Overall, a good recipe - especially for company!
