Fluffy Mascarpone Cream Recipe

Mascarpone cream

This recipe makes the most excellent mascarpone cream! It’s light and fluffy and excellent for filling cakes, icing cupcakes, or topping pie!

Mascarpone Cream is famously used in various Italian desserts, pastries, and savory dishes.

Its most notable recipe it’s a part of is the globally recognized Tiramisu!


The creaminess of the mascarpone (other than the caffeine) drew so many people, from young to old, in! In Italy, mascarpone is also incorporated into our Christmas tradition!

Every year, families buy fluffy, vanilla-infused, sweet bread covered in powdered sugar called Pandoro. When Christmas and New Year finally come, the whole family gathers to indulge in their sweetness.

Mascarpone cream is a decadent, creamy dessert or filling made with mascarpone cheese. It's versatile and can be used as a topping for cakes, pies, and desserts like tiramisu. Here's how to make mascarpone cream:

  • 18 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 3.5 ounces sugar
  • 6 eggs
    • Work the egg yolks in a mixer at maximum speed with 100g(3.5 oz) of sugar until the mixture is light and smooth. 
    • Add the mascarpone cheese little by little with the mixer in action, amalgamating it very well to avoid lumps.
    • In a clean bowl, whip the egg whites and add the rest of the sugar, little by little.
    • Once you have fully whipped the egg whites and sugar together, incorporate them into the mascarpone mixture, mixing them with a spatula in a top-to-bottom motion until you get a smooth, fluffy cream.
