Tiramisu Cupcakes with Marscapone Frosting (optional)

This recipe is Sooo good and very easy to make, those tasting them never stop at one ! lol

Tiramisu Cupcakes

1 1/2 cups butter
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, packed.
3 lg.eggs
1 1/4 cup milk
2 tsp.vanilla
2 tsp.baking powder
1/2 tsp.salt
3 cups flour

Preheat oven 180c.

Melt butter and whisk in brown sugar.
Allow to cool-4 mins.
Whisk in eggs.
Add vanilla ,milk ,baking powder,salt…whisk to combine.
Fold in flour.

Coffee Syrup
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup water or Expresso depending on the strength you prefer.
3 Tblsp.  strong coffee
1 tsp. cinnamon powder or 2 tsp Kahlua (optional)

Combine all ingredients and boil.
Reduce heat and allow to simmer until it thickens alittle.

Once your cupcakes are baked ,remove them from the oven and pour a little coffee syrup over each cupcake.
Once cool ….

Add Mascarpone frosting (see below) or the frosting of your choice, it’s all Om NOM NOM from there lol

Marcapone Frosting

250g mascarpone cheese
200g Philadelphia
150g icing sugar

To make the frosting, beat the mascarpone, Philly and icing sugar together in a mixer until smooth and creamy.  (don’t overwork it) You stand a better chance of this happening if the cheeses are at room temperature when you start.

Add some lightly sprinked cocoa powder and top with some grated white or dark chocolate, if you want to get really Fancy pants add a single coffee bean to the top !

This frosting also makes a great filler between larger cake layers or butterfly cupcakes.


** There was a slight ingredient typo I have now rectified the error above with humble apologies to another wonderful blogger I dream of Cake who made these cuppies and noted the syrup was too thin, it should have read 1/3 of a cup not 1 cup for the Coffee syrup!

I usually rigorously proof read and somehow this one slipped past me.  OOOPS!!!!!

  2. Welcome back MF 🙂

    Very Good point!! This is why I love blogs LOL

    I will definately make sure I have conversions listed in future !! Those currently listed are only Australian measurements, I’ll include US measurements as well from now on, and amend this recipe in a little while.

    Below is the proper conversion to F for 180 celsius.

    180 C = 350 F

    (if you use gas then it’s Gas mark 4 or a Moderate oven)

  3. Tiramisu is my absolute favorite and in no way is Mascarpone optional!

    Will definitely be trying these, once I convert some of the measurements. What is 180C in Fahrenheit anyway? 😉
