Tiramisu has a special place in my heart, and I’m sure that’s true for many of you. It’s one of those desserts that never gets old, no matter how much you’ve had. There’s something about that sweet cream and coffee and marsala flavor of the dessert that just captures your tastebuds. And that’s what I was going for with this Tiramisu cheesecake – the creaminess and flavors are all here! This cheesecake is very light and fluffy thanks to the combination of cream cheese and mascarpone!
The Secret to a Fluffy Cheesecake!
The secret to making a very fluffy cheesecake is whisking the cream cheese for the right amount of time. Make sure to soften the cheese at room temperature, then whisk for 7 to 8 minutes, scraping down the sides of your mixing bowl often to get a smooth mixture. Once the cheese is nice and smooth, then add the remaining ingredients. For an even fluffier cheesecake, consider replacing 8 ounces of the cream cheese with whole milk ricotta. Continue with the recipe as written and add the ricotta at the end along with the mascarpone cheese.
