Challenge: No Oven Allowed - Lemon Mascarpone Cake
The weather was so nice yesterday though, which meant that our kitchen was already hot like an oven and turning on our actual oven would have caused us heat strokes. So baking is not an option, but I still had to turn out a cake nice enough to be a present for my coworker, so I improvised.

I figured I could substitute the coffee with a lemon syrup and just leave out the chocolate and make it as if I was making tiramisu, and the cake turned out quite nice:
