All the things you love about tiramisu, but with a Saturday morning vibe!

Broken cake doughnuts get a good soak in espresso and Kahlua, then are swathed in creamy layers of cream cheese, whipped cream, fresh raspberry sauce, and chocolate shavings. My mouth is watering just writing that. This recipe couldn't be more straightforward or more scrumptious, which is what I call a perfect dessert!

Use a variety of un-frosted cake donuts, like cinnamon, powdered sugar and plain!



Ingredients: 6-7 standard cake donuts, 1/2 cup strongly brewed coffee, 2 shots espresso, 2 shots Kahlua, 12 ounces cream cheese at room temperature, 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 2 tsp. vanilla extract, 1/2 pint raspberries, 1/4 cup sugar, and 3 ounces semi-sweet or dark chocolate--shaved or chopped finely.

Serves 6-8

1. Make the raspberry sauce: Heat raspberries and 1/4 cup sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat until simmering. Stir and cook until raspberries have broken down, and the sauce has thickened so it coats the back of a spoon, well. Strain (if desired) through a sieve to remove seeds. Set aside to cool. 2. Stir together coffee, espresso, Kahlua, and 1 tsp. of vanilla extract. Set aside. 3. Beat the cream cheese until smooth with the remaining vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, beat the whipped cream and powdered sugar until soft peaks are formed. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. 4. Break or cut the donuts into small pieces. Place half into the bottom of a deep bowl or 9x13 inch baking dish. 5. Pour half of the coffee mixture over the doughnuts, pressing down with a spoon to form a cohesive layer. Dollop half of the cream cheese mixture over the donuts and spread to the edges. Drizzle with 4-5 tablespoons of the raspberry sauce, finishing with a layer of chocolate shavings. 6. Repeat the layering a second time. Cover and refrigerate for 6 hours to overnight before serving.


  1. In place of Kahlua, try Godiva or other coffee or chocolate liquer, or Chambord.

  2. To use mascarpone cheese instead of cream cheese, use 16 ounces of it and only 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream.

  3. What to do with the leftover raspberry sauce? Have it over yogurt or ice cream or mix it with butter and spread on your toast.
