PostPosted: Tue Sep 08, 2009 4:38 pm    Post subject: mascarpone substitute Reply with quote

I'm going to try this this week.
I can't find mascarpone, so I will use what Joy of Cooking says can substitute:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup heavy cream
Stir together until smooth

I am not quite sure if that will add up to a pound of faux-carpone or not?

PS Dang confirmation code makes me go through the alphabet song ...

Just wanted to mention that I originally found this recipe a few years ago, looking for a tiramisu recipe safe for a pregnant friend. Since then, I've made it a half-dozen times, and have gotten raves every time. Thanks!

I am using a slightly different the cream whipping the cream to soft peaks instead of hard peaks, instead of brandy i use marsala wine (authentic recipe) and serve in a glass or cappuccino cup.

I made tiramisu many time and I foun the most authentic touch is when u add a lil Marsala wine into the mascarpone to soften and adhere to its richness and flavor.

Make one version with marsala and one without and u would know the difference.

Be liberal with the wine as its not that potent.

I would add about 1/4 cup to 1 cup of mascarpone.

Note - in a warmed cheese this would quickly get runny.
You should leave the mascarpone in a chilled section of the fridge to acheive adding the wine and not have it runny.

Eitherways Tiramisu gets any and everyone in a good mood. Smile

I have read that you can use orange juice instead of alcohol. Is that right? Smile

>>without alcohol

at the simplest level, tiramisu is a cake thingie spread / saturated with good tasting gooey stuff.

variations on the theme abound - I've done it with pound cake that's gone a little stale - a crisp lady finger is more traditional.

the flavorings are defined by tradition as well - it's been done without the coffee, topped with nuts vs. chocolate, you name it, it's probably been done.

as a technical point, the further afield from 'the traditional recipe' one goes, the less 'authentic' it is under the tiramisu "name" - but what the heck, if it tastes good, call it anything you'd like!

Made this recipe a couple of times now, and am planning on making it again tonight for a work party tomorrow. Best tiramisu recipe yet! easy and yummy!
I was not a fan of using raw eggs as the original tiramisu recipes need, so I was thrilled to find this recipe online a couple of years ago.

The changes: I only make 2 changes: Don't like or have brandy, so I use Kahlua instead. And I always double the recipe and it fits perfectly in my lasagna pan (13x9).

You can, but it will taste significantly different. I assume by regular cream cheese you mean Philadelphia brand cream cheese or an product designed to mimic Philadelphia brand's flavor profile. If so, your tiramisu will have an added tartness that you may or may not like depending on your preferences.

I just thought I'd say that your format of directions is really intuitive. Maybe it's just because I'm an engineer though...
