Could find that kind of cheese - will Riccotta work the same? I am going to try it and I will let you know if it tastes ok. This is going to be the filling between two layers of chocolate cake then covered with cream cheese frosting.

A cheaper alternative to mascarpone cheese: cream together 8 oz softened cream cheese, 1/4 c heavy cream, and 2.5 Tbsp sour cream. I would double it to make the 14 oz needed for this recipe :)

I think coffee would work fine, after all you use real coffee to make real tiramisu :-)

I have made a tiramisu cake using a vanilla sponge cake (bar shape) torted into several layers, filled with a marscapone/cream cheese fiilling and finely grated dark chocolate. Use sweetened strong black expresso coffee to moisten the layers before adding filling. Delish!

I'm sorry fans of this recipe, but I cannot see my self making this. I've been making tiramisu for years now, and this just sounds gross:( I'm sure It may taste great to others but not in my family:)

That was rude. Thank you MoG for saying something. " I'm sure it tastes great to others but not in my family. " How about you try it first... or just stay hush.

I apologize for causing such hostility. I never meant to be rude. I was actually referring to Kuelker7's response. Again, it's not personnel it's just my opinion. thank-you gsj

thank-you shoko. I did summit my recipe yesterday and I'm sure it'll be up in a few days or so. Let me know when you try it:)

I was thinking of using this as a filling for a chocolate layer cake. Does anyone have an opinion of how it will taste? thanks

How long will this keep? I'm doing a chocolate cake, covering with ganache, then fondant. this sounds nice if I torte the cake as well.

How do you mean? Out in the open, or preparing days before? You're using Marscarpone cheese, mainly. I've used it right away. Filled one night, and delivered the next morning.

In response to graciesj personal dislike of this recipe,, I'm sure you may be an expert on Tiramisu since you've made it for so long, but this isn't a recipe on Tiramisu in its entirety, It's a recipe for a "cake filling" with a tiramisu flavor. I cant see the actual tiramisu cake in between the layers of a cake. This recipe sounds delish, and stable enough to use as a filling, i will be putting in between the layers of a chocolate cake made with coffee, and a tiramisu filling will compliment that just right!

SHUGAROSE, I'm sure this would be good as a filling for a cake, but bot for a tiramisu though. The title of this recipe is a tiramisu filling, so maybe that's the confusion? Not sure. Let me know how this works out for you:)

I just made this last night to fill some jumbo chocolate cupcakes and it is soooo good. I had left over and my family was eating it by the spoonfuls. I used the cream cheese, sour cream, and heavy cream instead of the marcarpone as stated by Kuelker7..Thanks for the tip! I would use this in all my chocolate cakes if I could...YUMMY!!!! Great Recipe!!!!!!!
