Recipe — Maple Tiramisu
Cooling Time:
12 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 1/2 cup hot espresso coffee
  • 1 1/2 cup maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust flavour)
  • 1/2 cup liqueur (like Triple Sec or Amaretto)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 2 475-g (17 oz) tubs of mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 ladyfinger cookies, broken in half
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, grilled and chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup maple sugar (or maple flakes)


  1. In a bowl, mix together the espresso and 125 ml (1/2 cup) of the maple syrup, then add the liqueur and dried fruit. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  3. In another large bowl, beat the mascarpone, egg yolks, vanilla and remaining maple syrup. Then, carefully fold into the egg whites using a spatula.
  4. Place 6 cookies at the bottom of a 3-L (12-cup) glass dish, then pour half of the dried fruit and coffee mixture evenly over the top.
  5. Sprinkle half of the nuts and spread half of the mascarpone filling on top. Repeat to create a second layer.
  6. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours, then sprinkle with cocoa and maple sugar before serving.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
