I've been searching for the brasiliana cake in New York and have posted on the New York message board, but no one has heard of this cake. My friend bought the brasiliana cake from Emporio Rulli in Larkspur and it is the most heavenly cake. Does anyone know where I could find it on the east cost?
It is similar to a tiramisu, but instead of using ladyfingers, they use a chocolate sponge cake that is brushed with espresso liqueur. I believe there are three layers of this cake and each layer is filled with chantilly cream. The cake is in the shape of a dome and then covered with the chantilly cream and milk chocolate shavings. The brasiliana doesn't have the soupy texture as the tiramisu. yuuummy!
