How to Make Tiramisu Cake using a cake mix

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour 3 (9-in) pans.
  • 2Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Divide two-thirds of batter between 2 pans. Stir instant coffee into remaining batter; pour into remaining pan.
  • 3Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. In a measuring cup, combine brewed coffee and 1 Tablespoon coffee liqueur; set aside.
  • 4To make filling: In a small bowl, using an electric mixer set on low speed, combine mascarpone, 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar and 2 Tablespoons coffee liqueur; beat just until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Pour one-third of reserved coffee mixure over cake, then spread with half of the filling mixture. Top with coffee-flavored cake layer; poke holes in cake. Pour another third of the coffee over the the second layer and spread with the remaining filling.
