Hey there! My name is Rose; I am the author of The Clean Dish – a real food blog where you find grain free, gluten free and processed sugar free recipes! I am super excited to be guest posting for Beth today here at Tasty Yummies! I am a military wife and German national (I feel obliged to mention this so hopefully, you will forgive me any linguistic inaccuracies 🙂 ). I love fresh, locally sourced food and making things from scratch; nothing gives me more pleasure than to enjoy a home cooked meal with family and friends. Come visit me at the Clean Dish and see what I’ve been up to in my kitchen lately – I would love to have you 🙂

I had a hard time deciding whether I should bring you something sweet or savory! Right after Christmas, I didn’t even want to look at sweet stuff, not to mention make anything sweet but January has been a healthy month for me so far; I have recovered from my sugar overdose and this recipe I have for you is one I have been working on for a while so it’s time to get it out there!

I haven’t really made anything containing mascarpone in over 3 years – since I came to the US. And boy, was I shocked to find that 8oz of mascarpone cost $7 in this country!! That’s way too much, if I may say so. So I decided to compromise: I used equal parts mascarpone and cream cheese (instead of mascarpone only) with an amazing outcome: It tastes almost exactly like tiramisu cream except it’s a little firmer so it’s perfect for brownie frosting!

A note on the cream: The original Italian recipe for tiramisu cream calls for raw egg yolks. I recommend you only use raw egg yolks if you are certain they are fresh! I personally have never had any issues and I buy my eggs at the supermarket (we currently do not have direct access to farm fresh eggs, sadly!) so I think it’s perfectly safe if you ensure freshness.

Rose + Beth this sounds amazing! What an awesome idea. I don’t know why I’ve never thought about fusing brownies and tiramisu together. Pure genius.

Can you sub the applesauce for anything? I follow low FODMAP and apples are a no go.

Link doesn’t work to the clean dish, at least not on my ipad

Hmm I just checked both links and they both work. Maybe her site was down earlier today when you tried. Thanks for letting me know either way 😉

Is that cinnamon dusted on top? I want to make these for my husband ASAP!


11 Jena February 10, 2014 at 12:53 pm

I made these the other day, and my husband went out the next day to buy more cream cheese so I could make more! These are amazing!
