Tiramisu Cupcakes

Finally, another recipe!!!!

I tried to make a recipe in the beginning of the week, but alas, we had no eggs :'(. I LOVE tiramisu! It's made up of only things that I love, so it would just be impossible for me not to love it. My dad also loves tiramisu, so i definitely wanted to try to make it into a cupcake. 

Tiramisu Cupcakes
Yields 18


1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup almond milk


1/3 cup brewed espresso (or strong coffee)
2 tbsp raw sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp almond extract
16 oz. mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup confectionery sugar

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside

Whisk the eggs in a large bowl, and then slowly add the sugar a little at a time while still whisking.

Add the vanilla extract, almond extract, and the oil, and whisk until completely combined. 

Alternately whisk in half of the flour and half of the almond milk until they are both completely combined.

Fill baking cups about half way, and bake on 350 for 15/20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean and cupcakes are golden yellow.

 Let the cupcakes cool to warm, then remove them from the pan.

Aren't they pretty??

I'd like to give a quick shout-out to the scavenger that keeps my kitchen floors clean...


While your cupcakes are cooling, you can start to work on the frosting!

Combine hot brewed coffee with the raw sugar until it dissolves completely. Add the vanilla and almond extracts.

Brush this coffee syrup on the tops of the cupcakes to add some of the coffee flavor into the cupcakes.

In a medium bowl, beat the mascarpone cheese and confectionery sugar.

Beat in the remaining coffee syrup

Using a circle tip, pipe the frosting onto completely cooled cupcakes.

Top with cocoa powder and shaved chocolate.

That's it! Enjoy your cupcakes! :)
