Tiramisu Cupcake Recipe
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 3/4 C white sugar
  • 2/3 C milk
  • 1 1/4 C heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 lb mascarpone cheese
  • 1 C strong brewed coffee, room temperature
  • 2 tbsp rum
  • ladyfingers baked in cupcake wrappers (see post on ladyfingers for instructions.)
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • a small amount of dark chocolate for chocolate curls (optional)
  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together egg yolks and sugar until well blended.
  2. Whisk in milk and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils.
  3. Boil gently for 1 minute, remove from heat, and allow to cool slightly.
  4. Cover tightly and chill in refrigerator 1 hour.
  5. Remove from refrigerator and whisk in mascarpone until smooth.  Set aside.
  6. In a medium bowl, beat cream with vanilla until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  7. In a small bowl, combine coffee and rum.
  8. Drizzle approximately 1 tbsp + 2 tsp of the coffee/rum mixture over each pre-baked ladyfinger.  Add it a little at a time and wait for it to absorb into the ladyfingers before adding more.  When it stops absorbing, stop adding more.
  9. Spread the mascarpone mixture over the soaked ladyfingers.
  10. Pipe or spread the whipped cream over the mascarpone.
  11. Sprinkle with cocoa powder.
  12. Optionally, top with chocolate curls.  Make the chocolate curls using a vegetable peeler on a piece of chocolate.  It works best if the chocolate is slightly warm, but not melty.
  13. Cover and refrigerate 4 to 6 hours, until set.
