Pumpkin Tiramisu Cake Recipe
Pumpkin Tiramisu Cake Recipe – slices of pumpkin cake brushed with flavorful coffee syrup and stacked with whipped mascarpone cream. Covered with mascarpone cream on the outside, dripping chocolate and chopped hazelnuts.
This cake is perfection! Seasonal and full of my favorite flavors.
Tiramisu cake is one of my all time favorite desserts.
But I also love making this pumpkin cake roll with cream cheese frosting.
All my favorite holidays are around the corner.
Which means holiday baking. And not to forget eating.
But instead of the traditional tiramisu and pumpkin cake roll, I’m excited to share with you the recipe for this Pumpkin Tiramisu Cake.
I got this recipe from BHG and changed it a bit.
At fist I wanted to make a round layered cake.
But after I saw that the cake part for this pumpkin tiramisu cake is baked in a sheet pan, then cut into 3 rectangles and layered, I decided to just do it this way. It is so easy…
Less pans to wash and it saves time with baking.
Plus You can manage to cut even pieces for the layers. Because let’s face it – round cake layers almost never look the same. And we don’t have any time to waste around the holidays.
Holidays need to be enjoyed to the fullest!
The whipped mascarpone cream is not new to you, I’ve shared it many times, since I started this blog back in 2013.
The coffee syrup is just espresso (from my Nespresso machine), with just a little sugar, but you have the option to make this syrup more sweet, if you’d like.
I used hazelnuts for topping, since they are my favorite nuts and the original recipe called for them, but feel free to use almonds, walnuts or pecans.
So easy, if you like tiramisu and warm pumpkin spices, go ahead and ty it!
