Tiramisu Cupcake with Mascarpone cream

You may know that I love mascarpone cheese, and that the reason of my passion for Tiramisu, so it will be great to have another Tiramisu in my collection, in a cupcake form. This recipe is an adaptation from ................ have to say that the original recipe uses less Mascarpone cream (or not enough for me) but if you want to fell like having a cup of Tiramisu, lot of cream is in need. I don’t have Masala so I use Kahlua® instead (ok, I have to tell you I like Kahlua®, I can have it by its own, so it’s good to use any liqueur that you like to drink on you food). So now Tiramisu is in a form of cupcake, it’s easy to make, and more important, it’s easy to eat too.

  1. hi,i would like to try your recipe:) but wondering if the flour need to be sifted?

  2. more qn.will the frosting melt easily?do i need to chill the cupcakes after frosting?

  3. Hi, ivy
    First the flour need to be sifted and the frosting will melt easily in the hot weather, so chilling is better option.

  4. Thank you so much for your prompt reply!

  5. I made these cupcakes and they were divine! It only cooked for 10 min. When I saw in shop, how much fat is in mascarpone, I balked. So I used plain smooth cottage cheese - it wasn't a thick frosting, but very nice.
