Easy Tiramisu Poke Cake – a simple white cake drizzled with a sweetened coffee syrup, and topped with a whipped mascarpone vanilla frosting. It’s a simple recipe to put together without the liqueur and uses Fair Trade ingredients.
It’s that time of year again!
During the month of October, we celebrate Fair Trade. If you’ve been following my blog for some time then you know that I enjoy promoting Fair Trade products and the farmers associated with them. Buying any product with a Fair Trade label on it will not only benefit your family but will also give back to the people and the families responsible for providing us with such great items.
Big changes can come from small, everyday decisions. Each moment offers an opportunity to build strong families, support education for children, protect the environment, and more. That’s why Fair Trade USA is running a special campaign called “Fair Moments” this October. Its goal is to show how everyday moments can have a worldwide impact when you choose Fair Trade products. See how your #FairMoments add up by going to FairMoments.org, and show us the difference you’re making in your own #FairMoments photos!
I used the Sunspire Fair Trade Organic Unsweetened Chocolate Baking Bar, High Brew Double Espresso Coffee, and Wholesome Organic Vanilla Frosting in this Easy Tiramisu Poke Cake recipe. It was absolutely delicious and I really couldn’t stop eating it. It was perfectly sweetened and has a great coffee taste. Of course, it’s not a real tiramisu as it doesn’t contain ladyfingers and I also chose not to include any liqueur so everyone can enjoy it!
