A super tasty (and simple!) Tiramisu cake!

  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
Coffee Marsala Syrup:
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder
  • 1 tablespoon Marsala wine
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar (packed)
Creamy Whipped Frosting:
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese (softened)
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar (plus 1 teaspoon, divided)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (divided)
  • pinch Kosher salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
To Assemble:
  • 1 store-bought 9-inch round yellow cake
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (to garnish)
  • For the Coffee Marsala Syrup: In a small saucepan over medium heat, add coffee, Marsala, and brown sugar and stir to combine. Cook until sugar is fully dissolved, remove from heat, set aside, and keep slightly warm.
  • For the Creamy Whipped Frosting: In a large bowl, add cream cheese, 1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, and a pinch of salt, stir until fully incorporated. Set aside.
  • In a second large bowl, add heavy cream and whip until medium-stiff peaks form. Add remaining confectioners' sugar and remaining vanilla and stir to combine.
  • Gently fold whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture and transfer to a piping bag fitted with a round tip.
  • To Assemble: On a clean work surface, using a wooden skewer, poke holes halfway into cake, leaving an inch between holes. Carefully pour coffee syrup over cake. Garnish with whipped cream rosettes and a dusting of cocoa powder.
  • Tip: Stir any leftover cake into vanilla ice cream for second sweet treat!
