coffee and cake, all in one handy package
Of course, while traditional tiramisu is made with very light finger-shaped biscuits dipped in coffee and topped with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar and mascarpone cheese, we have totally simplified the whole process down to these delicious cupcakes. These little delights are like having coffee and a cake all in the one package. How convenient is this for the new-age folk, eating with one hand and mobile phone in the other?

Cup Cake Tray
400gself raising flour
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Cream together sugar, butter and vanilla with an electric beater. Add eggs one at a time, stir through until just combined. Add some flour, then some milk, alternating, whilst stirring with a wooden spoon. Spoon into cases and bake for 15-20 minutes, the set aside to cool.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter for 5 minutes until pale and fluffy. Add in mascarpone and beat until combined and fluffy. Add 1 tbsp at a time of the icing sugar, until it’s dissolved. Continue mixing while adding the espresso, taste, use more espresso if required.
Make a hollow in each of the cupcakes, then tip in 2 tsp of the espresso. Fill the cupcake with butter cream mixture and pipe on top for a fancy finish. Sprinkle with grated chocolate.
