Tiramisu Cupcakes Recipes


I have to say, this is the first time Tiramisu made an appearance here on my blog. It really didn’t tickle my fancy. Nope, not one tiny bit.
And now I feel the need to explain.

I love tiramisu (who doesn’t?)
Especially in cupcake form.

A long time ago, I was this lady who could barely look at tiramisu to someone who bakes and eats like crazy. This is one of my favorites dessert and trust me, I love trying new things.

To resemble the coffee-soaked ladyfingers, brush the coffee/Marsala syrup on the warm cupcakes. This way the syrup will be absorbed effortlessly by the cupcakes with just a perfect amount.

Add the butter

Set a mixing bowl over a pan of simmering water. With an electric mixer, mix eggs, yolks, and sugar until just sugar is dissolved and the mixture is smooth (no grainy texture felt) and warm which is about 6 minutes. Remove bowl from heat.

With an electric mixer, whisk until mixture is fluffy, thick and is pale yellow. Fold flour mixture into the egg mixture in three batches.
