Serves: Serves 10 to 12
  • ½ cup cake flour plus more for dusting the pan.
  • 5 eggs, room temperature, separated,
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • ½ cup brewed espresso
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Frangelico
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon Frangelico
  • ½ cup chilled heavy cream
  • Cocoa for Dusting

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Lightly coat a jelly roll pan with baking spray and line with parchment paper.
  3. Spray parchment paper with baking spray and dust with flour; shake off any excess flour and set aside.
  4. In your mixer's bowl, beat together yolks, vanilla, and ½ cup sugar at high speed until thick and pale yellow; about 10 minutes.
  5. Add half of flour to yolks-mixture and fold it in gently.
  6. Add the rest of the flour and fold in gently. Set aside.
  7. In a large mixing bowl combine egg whites, salt and cream of tartar; beat at medium speed until soft peaks form.
  8. Add 2 tablespoons sugar and continue to beat until whites just hold stiff peaks.
  9. Fold ¼ of whites into yolk mixture, then fold in remaining whites until thoroughly combined.
  10. Pour melted butter in a small mixing bowl.
  11. Stir ½ cup of the prepared cake batter into melted butter.
  12. Gently fold the butter mixture back into the batter; fold until thoroughly combined.
  13. Spread batter evenly in previously prepared pan; rap pan once on counter to eliminate air bubbles.
  14. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until top of cake springs back when you touch it.
  15. Sift powdered sugar over cake; cover cake with a kitchen towel and a baking sheet.
  16. Holding sheet and cake pan together, flip cake onto cloth on baking sheet. Carefully peel off the parchment paper. Use oven mitts!
  17. Using the towel, roll up cake, jelly-roll style, keeping it wrapped in the towel.
  18. Place cake seam-side down on a rack, still wrapped in the towel, and cool completely.
In the meantime, prepare the syrup.
  1. Combine espresso and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Stir until sugar dissolves, then boil until liquid is reduced to a ¼ cup.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in Frangelico; let cool to room temperature.
Make the Filling
  1. Combine mascarpone, sugar, cinnamon and Frangelico in a large bowl; beat with a mixer until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat heavy cream until it just holds stiff peaks.
  3. Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture until combined.
  1. Gently unroll cooled cake on a baking sheet, keeping it on the towel.
  2. Brush cake with the espresso syrup.
  3. Using an offset spatula, spread the whipped cream filling evenly over cake, leaving a ½-inch border all around.
  4. Starting from long side nearest you, roll up cake without towel, leaving it seam-side down on baking sheet.
  5. Dust with cocoa powder.
  6. Cut and Serve.

Tiramisu Cake

For the cake layers:
2 cups (255 grams) cake flour
2 teaspoons (10 grams) baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 sticks (10 tablespoons or 140 grams)) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup (200 grams) sugar
3 large eggs
1 large egg yolk
1 1/2 teaspoons (8 ml) pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup (175 ml) buttermilk

For the espresso extract:
2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
2 tablespoons (30 ml) boiling water

For the espresso syrup:
1/2 cup (120 ml) water
1/3 cup (65 grams) sugar
1 tablespoon (15 ml) amaretto, Kahlua, or brandy (Deb note: I used brandy)

For the filling and frosting:
1 8-ounce (225 grams) container mascarpone
1/2 cup (60 grams) confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1 1/2 teaspoons (8 ml) pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon (15 ml) amaretto, Kahlua, or brandy (Deb note: I used brandy)
1 cup (235 ml) cold heavy cream
2 1/2 ounces (70 grams) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped, or about 1/2 cup store-bought mini chocolate chips

Chocolate-covered espresso beans, for decoration (optional)
Cocoa powder, for dusting

Getting ready:
Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter two 9×2 inch round cake pans, dust the insides with flour, tap out the excess, and line the bottoms of the pans with parchment or wax paper. Put the pans on a baking sheet.

To make the cake:
Sift together the cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Working with a stand mixer, preferably fitted with a paddle attachment, or with a hand mixer in a large bowl, beat the butter on medium speed until soft and creamy. 

Add the sugar and beat for another 3 minutes. Add the eggs one by one, and then the yolk, beating for 1 minute after each addition. Beat in the vanilla; don’t be concerned if the mixture looks curdled.

Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk, adding the dry ingredients in 3 additions and the milk in 2 (begin and end with the dry ingredients); scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed and mix only until the ingredients disappear into the batter. Divide the batter evenly between the two pans and smooth the tops with a rubber spatula.

Bake for 28 to 30 minutes, rotating the pans at the midway point. When fully baked, the cakes will be golden and springy to the touch and a thin knife inserted into the centers will come out clean. Transfer the cakes to a rack and cool for about 5 minutes, then run a knife around the sides of the cakes, unmold them, and peel off the paper liners. Invert and cool to room temperature right-side up.

To make the extract:
Stir the espresso powder and boiling water together in a small cup until blended. Set aside.

To make the syrup:
Stir the water and sugar together in a small saucepan and bring just to a boil. Pour the syrup into a small heatproof bowl and stir in 1 tablespoon of the espresso extract and the liqueur or brandy; set aside.

To make the filling and frosting:
Put the mascarpone, sugar, vanilla, and liqueur in a large bowl and whisk just until blended and smooth.

Working with the stand mixer with the whisk attachment or with a hand mixer, whip the heavy cream until it holds firm peaks. Switch to a rubber spatula and stir about one quarter of the whipped cream into the mascarpone. Fold in the rest of the whipped cream with a light touch.

To assemble the cake:
If the tops of the cake layers have crowned, use a long serrated knife and a gentle sawing motion to even them. Place one layer right-side up on a cardboard round or a cake plate protected with strips of wax or parchment paper. Using a pastry brush or a small spoon, soak the layer with about one third of the espresso syrup.

Smooth some of the mascarpone cream over the layer – user about 1 1/4 cups – and gently press the chopped chocolate into the filling. Put the second cake layer on the counter and soak the top of it with half the remaining espresso syrup, then turn the layer over and position it, soaked side down, over the filling. Soak the top of the cake with the remaining syrup.

For the frosting, whisk 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of the remaining espresso extract into the remaining mascarpone filling. Taste the frosting as you go to decide how much extract you want to add. If the frosting looks as if it might be a little too soft to spread over the cake, press a piece of plastic wrap against its surface and refrigerate it for 15 minutes or so. Refrigerate the cake too.

With a long metal icing spatula, smooth the frosting around the sides of the cake and over the top. If you want to decorate the cake with chocolate-covered espresso beans, press them into the filling, making concentric circles of beans or just putting some beans in the center of the cake.

Refrigerate the cake for at least 3 hours (or for up to 1 day) before serving – the elements need time to meld.

Just before serving, dust the top of the cake with cocoa. I cut a star shape out of waxed paper and placed it lightly over the cake, and shaved a layer of chocolate over it with a microplane, before carefully removing the star to leave a stenciled shape.
