For the Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk

For the Coffee Soaking Syrup:

  • 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coffee liqueur (optional)

For the Mascarpone Cream Filling:

  • 2 cups mascarpone cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Cocoa Dusting:

  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
  5. Divide the batter equally between the prepared cake pans. Smooth the tops with a spatula and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. While the cakes are baking, prepare the coffee soaking syrup. In a small saucepan, combine the brewed coffee and granulated sugar. Heat over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in the coffee liqueur, if desired. Set aside to cool.
  7. Once the cakes are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  8. To make the mascarpone cream filling, beat the mascarpone cheese, heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract together in a mixing bowl until smooth and creamy.
  9. To assemble the Tiramisu Cake, place one cake layer on a serving plate. Brush the top with the coffee soaking syrup, ensuring it is evenly moistened.
  10. Spread a generous layer of the mascarpone cream filling over the soaked cake layer. Place the second cake layer on top and repeat the process, brushing with the coffee syrup and spreading the mascarpone cream filling.
  11. Dust the top of the cake with unsweetened cocoa powder using a fine-mesh sieve.
  12. Refrigerate the Tiramisu Cake for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to allow the flavors to meld and the cake to set.
  13. When ready to serve, slice the cake into portions and enjoy the perfect balance of flavors and textures in each bite.
