One of my favorite, newfound desserts is tiramisu! Although, lady fingers are expensive to buy, so I thought about a tiramisu cupcake!
I found a recipe for them from http://www.yourcupofcake.com
It is a delicious, moist, vanilla & coffee cake with a marscapone & coffee filling, topped with a light cream cheese & whipped cream topping!
1 box white cake mix
2 egg whites
1/3 cup oil
3/4 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup sour cream
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup strong coffee
8 oz. marscapone
1 tablespoon strong coffee
1/2 cup powdered sugar
8 oz. cream cheese softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 pint heavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 350.
Line 24 cupcake wells with liners.
In a large bowl whisk egg whites, eggs, oil, buttermilk, sour cream, and vanilla gently.
Stir cake mix into wet ingredients.
Use half of the batter and fill the liners 1/3 of the way full.
Add the strong coffee to the remaining batter, and mix.
Drop one tablespoon of the coffee mixture on to the top of each batter-filled liner.
Bake for 16-20 minutes, or until the tops spring back.
Combine all filling ingredients with a spoon.
Beat cream cheese and sugar for the frosting until blended. Add the vanilla and heavy cream and beat until fluffy.
Once cupcakes are cool…
To assemble, cut a small cone shape out of each cupcake and fill with a teaspoon of filling.
Pipe whipped cream on to the top of the filled cupcakes.
Dust with a little cocoa powder & enjoy!
