A fantastic recipe for when you are feeling lazy but you really need to treat yourself right. This is a fan favorite with a splash of Marsala Wine and Espresso…..mmmmmm.

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 4 mins

Total Time: 14 mins


Coffee Marsala Syrup:

1/3 cup leftover coffee

1 3/4 tablespoons Marsala wine

1/4 cup light brown sugar (packed)

Creamy Whipped Frosting:

1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese (softened)

1/2 cup + 1 teaspoon confectioners’ sugar (divided)

1 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (divided)

8 ounces heavy cream

To assemble:

1 store-bought 9-inch round yellow cake

2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (to garnish)



In a small saucepan over medium heat, add coffee, Marsala, and brown sugar. Stir to combine and cook until sugar is fully dissolved, remove from heat, set aside and keep slightly warm.

In a large bowl, add cream cheese, 1/2 cup of confectioners’ sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla, stir until fully incorporated. Set aside.

In a large bowl, add heavy cream and whip until medium-stiff peaks form. Add remaining confectioners’ sugar and remaining vanilla and stir to combine.

Gently fold whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture and transfer to a piping bag fitted with a round tip.

To assemble:

On a work space using a wooden skewer, poke holes halfway into cake, leaving an inch between them. Carefully pour coffee syrup over cake. Garnish with whipped cream rosettes and a dusting of cocoa powder.
