Tiramisu Cupcakes

Servings: 12


  • For the Cupcake:
  • 100 g butter
  • 100 g powdered sugar
  • 100 g all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp instant coffee
  • 4-6 tbsp dark rum
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • For the frosting:
  • 8 tbsp Cream Cheese around 150-180 gms
  • 8 tbsp heavy whipping cream around 150-200 ml
  • 3/4-1 cup icing sugar as per taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • To make the cupcakes, preheat the oven to 350F (175C) whip the butter and sugar together.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla and whip until the mixture is light.
  • Add the instant coffee and mix. (You can use a lesser amount of coffee, but a stronger coffee flavor complements the frosting very well).
  • Mix the flour and baking powder (dry ingredients) in a bowl.
  • Now, slowly incorporate the dry ingredients and the rum alternately (in a dry-wet-dry sequence) with the butter mixture.
  • Divide the mixture into 12 greased cupcake moulds and bake at 350F until a skewer comes out clean (about 15-20 minutes).
  • For the frosting, whip the cream cheese and vanilla until soft.
  • Slowly add cream and icing sugar, while whipping, until stiff peaks are formed.
  • Pipe the frosting on cooled cupcakes. Dust cocoa powder on top.
