This is probably the best Pumpkin Tiramisu recipe that you can imagine: easy, tasty and requires very little time to be prepared! It is a bit different than the traditional tiramisu but its taste is just wonderful!
How does this recipe taste like
This recipe is delicious! It’s true that pumpkin doesn’t have a strong taste in general, apart from its mild sweetness. But when spices are added, it gets enhanced in a very pleasant way. The mascarpone and pumpkin pair incredibly well: if you haven’t tried this delicious combination, you are missing a lot! The marsala wine, coffee and pumpkin spices are a perfect addition to this dessert and make it really extraordinary.
Why make a Pumpkin Tiramisu
This dessert will impress everyone who tries it!
You will be surprised to find out how this unassuming vegetable makes a miracle of a dessert. The pumpkin puree is very moist: therefore after adding it to the mascarpone, we don’t need anything else to complete the tiramisu filling. The mascarpone is rich enough that’s why I have skipped the whipped cream, which you might find in many other similar recipes. Also we don’t need lots of sugar in this tiramisu because the pumpkin is naturally sweet. As a result we have an incredibly tasty dessert, prepared very quickly and with less calories than usual: isn’t that just fantastic!
Is this recipe hard to make
Pumpkin Tiramisu is among the easiest desserts you can imagine! Being quick and easy doesn’t make it less delicious than other fantastic recipes out there, like the Pioneer Woman Pumpkin Tiramisu.
The secret of its taste is the combination of marsala wine, coffee and spices. But if you don’t find marsala, you can easily substitute it by brandy or cognac.
To make this dessert you simply have to mix the pumpkin puree with mascarpone, spices and powdered sugar until smooth. Then soak the ladyfingers in the coffee mixed with marsala wine. Layer the soaked cookies and the frosting in a pan… Well, that’s pretty much all the work before refrigerating the Pumpkin Tiramisu!
