How to make Tiramisu Cake Roll

To make a Tiramisu Cake Roll, start by making the coffee sponge cake. It is a light and airy cake perfect for cake roll recipes. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla with an electric mixer until they become light in color and foamy. Add in the oil and mix until well incorporated. Gradually, fold in the dry ingredients. Pour the batter into a greased baking sheet and spread it evenly. Bake the cake at 350F (180C) for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Sprinkle the cake with powdered sugar to prevent it from sticking. Cover it with a kitchen towel and flip the cake over it. Remove the parchment paper and while still warm, roll it up with the towel. Let it cool completely.

To prepare the coffee Marsala mixture, mix the espresso with the Marsala wine in a small bowl and set it aside.

For the Mascarpone coffee frosting, mix the Mascarpone cheese with powdered sugar, vanilla, and coffee powder in a large bowl. Add in the chilled whipping cream and mix until stiff peaks form.

How to assemble the Tiramisu Cake Roll

To assemble the cake roll, unroll the cake and use a brush to soak it with the coffee Marsala mixture. Spread the Mascarpone frosting evenly, leaving a ½ inch (1cm) border. Roll the cake back up and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving, to allow the flavors to meld together.

Prepare the coffee whipped cream by whipping cream with powdered sugar and coffee until stiff peaks form. Spread over the rolled cake. Use a spatula to create some irregular peaks. Cut the ends of the roll. When it is time to serve, dust it with cocoa powder or grated chocolate to give it an elegant finish. 

This dessert is perfect for special occasions, holiday tables, or as a sweet treat to enjoy with a cup of coffee. Whether you are a fan of tiramisu or simply enjoy trying new desserts, a Tiramisu Cake Roll is a must-try. It is simply amazing. Don’t forget to share the photos with me on Instagram if you try it out. Enjoy!

  1. I love to make the Tiramisu cake roll but I dont want to print all the adds I only want to print this recipe

      click on the print button.. it will open a page ready for printing

  2. The ingredients list for the marscapone filling lists “whipping cream” while the directions say “add the chilled whipped cream” – is the cream meant to be whipped in advance or does it go in as liquid cream? Thanks!

    1. Ella - Home Cooking Adventure Author says:

      Sorry for the misunderstanding, will fix. You can do either way. You can add the chilled whipping cream to the mascarpone and continue mixing until stiff peaks form or whip the cream separately and add it to the mascarpone mixture. Let me know how it turned out for you.
