Tiramisu Cupcakes with Mascarpone
It's time to take the making of the usual Tiramisu cake onto the next level. Introducing the Tiramisu Cupcakes with Mascarpone! If you serve these during parties, you are guaranteed to be the talk of the town. These cupcakes are going to be so good that your guests might even ask if you are willing to take orders. You could perhaps even make a little money as the local baker for friends and family. There are some Nonna's that do this as they are so well known for certain desserts they bake that rather than their 'non-baking family and friends' buying from a bakery, they in fact do have a little business on the side!
Thanks to this blog called Cooking With Nonna, we were able to share this cool recipe to share with you all. It is not everyday you get to discover a recipe gem like this, so whenever we do, it just feels right to let the world know about it as well. The blog offers a lot of recipes since it has been established since 2008. A company named The BaciTV, LLC has a goal is to keep the tradition of the Italian cuisine alive through their recipes and posts. What a great idea to bring awareness to preserving culinary culture by using the Internet.
They decided to bring this idea to the public because they believe that the real recipes come from our grandmothers or as they are called in Italian, "Nonne." This is why they named their website after it. Our grandmothers can indeed be as great or even better than the professionals! They are the ones who hold the secret recipes that they pass on to the next generations. Our grandmothers don’t usually get the credit that is due them when it comes to this subject, but thanks to this website, the masses can now recognize them and give them the honor that they are worthy to receive. Rosella Rago, is the face of the website, and the website actually features recipes from her own grandmother. It also features videos of them cooking and baking together, so you can really get the full effect of the nonna experience. You will feel like you have your very own nonna with you, helping you cook and bake all of these amazing Italian recipes. How fun!
Moving on to this sweet recipe that you're about to learn, the ingredients that you need are butter, flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, milk, eggs, vanilla extract, unsweetened cocoa powder, espresso coffee and a quarter cup milk. For the Mascarpone frosting, all you need are some Mascarpone cheese and a cup of confectioners sugar. It is a must that you preheat your oven to 350 degrees before prepping for the ingredients. Doesn't that all sound awesome? It would be fairly easy to make as well. So why not try it out for yourself?
