Awesome recipe. Seriously, it inspired awe in those who tasted it. I just wanted to repost a mascarpone substitute I found in another Tiramisu recipe. It worked wonderfully in this one! HEIDI8803 posted this in Raspberry Tiramisu, not sure which recipe she got it from: mascarpone substitute- 2pkgs cream cheese blended with 1/2 c heavy cream and 5 T sour cream And, to reiterate other advice given by previous reviewers, I too made two of the three cake layers with the instant coffee (I’d’ve made it three, but the changing colors are beautiful) and I doubled the coffee liquer everywhere it was called for.
AMAZING! Make this and you will look like a pro! My suggestions: 1) use 4x as much instant coffee powder in cake batter, and make 2 layers of coffee flavored cake 2) i followed another reviewer’s suggestion for substituting mascarpone with a mix of cream cheese, sour cream, and heavy cream, and it tastes great and is cheaper 3) you must turn the cake upside down when layering, otherwise coffee liqueur will not soak into it 4) i used kahlua for liqueur 5) I used Duncan Hines supreme white cake mix-it is moist and uses egg whites 6) i used a very strong espresso instead of the coffee to give it more flavor…also, instead of making coffee/espresso, just add water to some of the instant coffee powder, it tastes just fine in the cake
Used 1 cup of coffee and 3T of liqueur. Made it twice this way and it turns out so wonderfly moist and flavorful. Oddly the coffee flavor is still very subtle. The cake layers are so moist with the extra liquid it is best to freeze them before you layer them.This way they will not fall apart when stacking.
Excellent. To make things easier, I used only 2 pans. I poured half of the cake batter onto 1 deep pan and used a cake slicer to evenly divide it. I followed the instructions to detail afterward. Follow these tips for outstanding results: 1. Instead of mixing the instant coffee into the batter, mix 1/4 cup of water with about 1 tbsp of instant cofee powder and mix into the batter. It tastes like an awesome mocha cake.
2. Also, be generous with the coffee mixture as you’re pouring it over your cakes, that way the cake is MOIST. Don’t overdo it though! 3. Buy your MASCARPONE CHEESE at Trader Joes or Sams Club (even cheaper)…it’s significantly cheaper there than any other grocery store that I went to. Excellent recipe!! thank you.
