This Chai Tiramisu is SO easy!

ChaiTiramisu_miseenplace_web

This Chai Tiramisu is so easy and flavorful! Chai, vanilla, cream, and rum…all in an easy-to-assemble and transport dessert. You will not forget this one!

We used pre-made ladyfingers, but you can make your own sponge cake (we have the recipe right here). Then, we whipped up a super simple mascarpone and cream mixture. Top it all off with some dark rum (we used Captain Morgan) and a chai concentrate (like 3rd Street or Oregon Chai) and you are cruising for dessert success.

This dish needs to be refrigerated for 24 hours so all of the flavors can meld and mix. But, it comes together so quickly and easily that it can be made in 15 – 20 minutes and then just throw it in the refrigerator and you’ll be ready to enjoy the next day. The chopped pistachios on the top really add to the flavor, but if pistachios aren’t your favorite, it would be good with walnuts or pecans too.

Let us know what you think of our new favorite Tiramisu recipe! Or, if you are more into the traditional Tiramisu, this recipe is a fan favorite!

Rodelle Reserve is here!

Rodelle Reserve French Oak Aged Vanilla Extract

Rodelle is so excited to launch our newest, ultra-premium vanilla extract! Rodelle Reserve French Oak Aged Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract…at a suggested retail price of $50 for a 6.75 ounce bottle, Rodelle Reserve elevates the company’s already highly-regarded line of superior baking essentials by being the first of its kind available. This high-end gourmet vanilla extract is for savvy consumers; Rodelle Reserve is an exciting announcement for the company.

Eighty years in the making, Rodelle Reserve is one of the most complex and carefully crafted vanilla extracts now available. Founded in 1936, Rodelle has produced high-quality vanilla products for both professional and home baking applications. Rodelle Reserve celebrates the traditional aspects of vanilla manufacturing while utilizing the most-advanced extraction techniques of today to create a luxury vanilla product. Rodelle’s process engineers carefully crafted small batches of two-fold, pure vanilla extract with premium quality gourmet vanilla beans handpicked from Madagascar. Then, like Rodelle’s process in the 1930’s, the vanilla was aged for months in French Oak barrels to enhance the natural flavors and aromas inherent in vanilla extract. Dr. Krishna Bala, co-founder of Rodelle, explains: “Aging vanilla in oak barrels softens the harsher elements of the alcohol that all vanilla extracts must contain, while smoothing out complex vanilla flavors and increasing the intensity by generating more flavor molecules.” The flavors found in Rodelle Reserve are unlike any other vanilla extract.

Rodelle Reserve offers a small-batch vanilla experience that was previously unavailable to consumers. The flavors and quality found in Rodelle Reserve will enhance any baking occasion from an everyday experience to a memory that your family will cherish forever. In addition to the superior quality of Rodelle Reserve, Rodelle carefully packaged and presents the vanilla as a beautiful addition for any home. From stunning, imported Italian glass bottles to a made-to-fit pour-spout cap, each bottle of Rodelle Reserve is unique. Rodelle’s team also carefully selected one whole gourmet Madagascar Bourbon vanilla bean to be added to each bottle, so no two bottles will be the same.

Rodelle Reserve brings the quality standard of professional bakers into the home to make make bakers’ dreams come true. “Rodelle has pioneered vanilla traditions and processes since 1936,” says Joe Basta, co-founder of Rodelle, Inc. “Rodelle Reserve is the best vanilla extract available with the purest of ingredients and a vintage feel that honors the heritage of the world’s favorite flavor,” he says. “Rodelle is excited to launch this innovative, luxury vanilla extract,” Basta concludes.
