Tiramisu Brownies

I’ve only ever tried tiramisu once but ever since I tried it my life has truly changed. I wake up happier. My skin is clearer. My bank account….is still empty but let’s not talk about that. But anyway I’ve been enjoying deconstructing traditional desserts and adding them to a different desserts. So I just knew I had to do it to tiramisu too!

Tiramisu Brownies


  • for the brownie:
  • 225g unsalted butter

  • 2 tsp instant coffee

  • 140g dark chocolate

  • 5 eggs

  • 200g granulated sugar

  • 200g brown sugar

  • 100g plain flour

  • 50g cocoa powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • for the sponge finger layer:
  • around 40 sponge fingers

  • some strongly brewed coffee

  • for the mascarpone layer:
  • 330g mascarpone

  • 375ml double cream

  • 120g icing sugar

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • plus some cocoa powder
    (for the top)


  • brownie:
  • grease and line a 9x12 inch cake tin. make sure to line each side of the tin with baking paper, the brownie will be a lot easier to take out at the end if you do this
  • pre-heat your oven to 180c/350f
  • put the butter into a pot and place this over medium heat
  • you want to keep cooking this until it turns a light brown colour. it will go through stages; the butter will melt first, then it will start to rapidly bubble, then it'll foam up a little, once it starts to go down, it's done. Don't stop mixing during this process, you don't want the butter to burn
  • once the butter has browned, take it off the heat and add in the coffee
  • once the coffee has dissolved, add in the chopped chocolate and stir until it's all melted. leave this aside to cool down
  • add the eggs and both sugar into a large bowl
  • whip this until the mixture almost doubles in volume and lightens in colour
  • whiles mixing, pour in the cooled butter/chocolate mixture
  • now just mix in the flour, cocoa powder and salt
  • pour this into your tin and bake for around 35 - 40 minutes
  • sponge finger layer:
  • once the brownie has baked and cooled down, you can add the sponge fingers
  • pour the coffee into a shallow dish, then dip both sides of the sponge fingers into this. you don't want to soak the sponge fingers in the coffee, just lightly dip both sides
  • place an even layer of these into the tin, then leave this aside
  • mascarpone layer:
  • place the mascarpone into a small bowl and just mix this with a spoon until it's loosened a little and it's smooth
  • in a large bowl, add the cream, sugar and vanilla
  • whisk this until the cream starts to thicken slightly
  • add the mascarpone into this, then whisk it all until the mixture is thick
  • add this into the tin, smooth it out then cover and leave in the fridge overnight
  • the next day take it out of the tin, use a sieve to dust some icing sugar on top, cut into it and you're done!!
