And from lemon curd to sweet desserts, you can use it in almost any recipe.

So if you’re looking for new and exciting ways to use this classic ingredient, look no further.

I have some of the best mascarpone recipes ever made right here.

Try them and see what I mean!

Torta with Mascarpone Apple Crumble

1. Tiramisu

You’re already a big fan of tiramisu, so I won’t waste your time explaining how to make one.

I’ll just say that it is the perfect dessert for any occasion.

 It appeals to everyone with its creamy texture, succulent chocolatey filling, and rich coffee flavor.

If you want to add some spice to the mix, try using different kinds of coffee or espresso.

It really makes all the difference!

The crust is a dream.

It has an amazing crumbly texture that melts in your mouth.

So if you like to have slice after slice of cake and ice cream, this one is definitely for you.

The filling is as decadent as it gets with a creamy mix of mascarpone and sweetened whipped cream.

The result is something that tastes incredible but feels even better.

It’s so good, you might just want to eat the whole thing yourself!

3. Mascarpone Apple Crumble Torta

Ready to impress that special someone?

It’s a hearty, decadent dish made with layers of biscuit-like pieces of apple filling and fluffy whipped cream.

The topping is the icing on the cake, though.

It features layers of cinnamon butter, brown sugar, and sweetened condensed milk.

Topped with mascarpone cheese (or real whipped cream), this treat is a show-stopper!

4. Mascarpone Mixed Berry Cake

Mascarpone is a nutty, creamy cheese that’s used most commonly in cheesecakes.

It’s also the base for this decadent cake.

The sweetness of the berries and mascarpone pair perfectly with the rich flavors of the cake.

The whole thing has a lovely flavor profile you don’t want to miss.

5. Strawberry Lemon Mascarpone Mousse

These two components come together to make a luscious, velvety mousse.

The strawberry lemon flavor is fresh and light, while the mascarpone cream is sweet and creamy.

Together, they create one delicious treat!

The combination of flavors and textures in this mousse are so amazing.

 Serve up a slice for dessert or enjoy it as an appetizer.

You’ll love every bite.

6. Raspberry Tiramisu

If you’re not a big coffee drinker, this tiramisu recipe is definitely for you.

It’s insanely rich and creamy, with a wonderfully subtle raspberry flavor that adds just the right amount of tang.

I especially love the way the creaminess of the filling complements the sweet notes of black tea.

Top tip: don’t overfill your cup!

That only makes it harder to pour when you try to get a good layer on top.

7. Pistachio Tiramisu

Looking for something more decadent and chocolatey?

Try this pistachio tiramisu recipe!

It takes a little bit of effort to make the pistachio cream look as good as it does.

It’s the same kind of silky, smooth, and luxurious filling you get with cheesecake.

Everything in this recipe comes together so easily.

Black forest is a famous Italian dessert.

It’s so good, people have been making it ever since the baroness became a well-known figure in history.

This black forest tiramisu is just as delicious and has an equally rich and creamy filling.

It’s made with black coffee, chocolate pudding, whipped cream, and ladyfingers.

The coffee gives it a wonderful deep flavor that pairs perfectly with sweet chocolate pudding.

The ladyfingers are marzipan-like in consistency.

You’ll love how they taste like shortbread or chewy baked goods!

This recipe isn’t limited to desserts and can be used to make various cheesecakes, brownies, cupcakes, cookies, etc.

For The Crumble:

  • 1/2 cups flour all-purpose
  • 1 cup flour almond
  • 1/4 cup sugar granulated
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 ounces butter cold
  • 2 tablespoons water.

For The Filling:

  • 8 ounces mascarpone
  • 8 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinega
  • 2 powdered sugar


  • To get started, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and position a rack in the center of the oven. In a large bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, almond flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  • Add the diced cold butter to the mixture and use your fingers to work it in, smearing it slightly to create small butter streaks and pieces of butter.
  • When the butter is evenly incorporated and there are still pea-sized pieces of butter in the mixture, add 2 tablespoons of water and continue to mix by hand until evenly distributed. Be careful not to overwork the dough – the mixture should be loose and crumbly.
  • Next, take a 9-inch springform pan and press 2/3 of the crumble mixture into the bottom to form a crust.
  • Bake the crust in the oven for approximately 12 to 15 minutes, or until it is set and just slightly golden. Let it cool for a bit.
  • In the meantime, prepare the filling by combining the mascarpone, cream cheese, and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.
  • Mix on high until the mixture is fluffy and well combined, for about a minute.
  • Add the eggs one at a time and mix on high until the batter is smooth and creamy.
  • Incorporate the vanilla and apple cider vinegar by mixing thoroughly.
  • Pour the mascarpone filling into the crust and add the sliced apples to cover the cheesecake filling.
  • Finish the dessert by topping it with the remaining 1/3 of the crumble mixture.
  • Bake in the oven for an hour, or until the topping is golden brown and the center of the cheesecake jiggles slightly.
  • Once the cheesecake is done, let it cool to room temperature, and then refrigerate for at least two hours before serving.
  • Remove it from the springform pan and sprinkle with powdered sugar to serve.
