Dessert For Breakfast

You may hear dessert for breakfast and think you couldn’t be as decadent as that, but thinking about breakfast food in general, people aren’t far off from this line of thinking anyway. Take for instance French toast: taking bread and cooking it on the griddle, then slathering on butter and syrup, maybe some powdered sugar and other sweet treats, and it’s not too far off from a donut to begin with. A lot of breakfast foods are sweeter than you think, as it’s been the norm to eat pancakes and waffles with syrup and adding some sweet fruit to top it all off. 


Donut Tiramisu

If you’re ready to try out a delicious recipe yourself and satisfy your sweet tooth, try out this recipe for a change of pace. Whether you have some stale donuts laying around or want to explore your creative side, baking and cooking can beat searching for “brunch near me” for most of your days. The recipe makes eight personal-sized cups, about the size of a large muffin, or one 10-cup trifle dish. You will need:


  • 16 oz. heavy cream  
  • 4 oz. mascarpone
  • 2 tspn vanilla extract
  • 3 shots espresso at room temperature
  • 3-4 Tspn dark rum
  • 3-4 Tspn bourbon
  • Sugar, to taste
  • 1 or 2 squares of dark chocolate, grated
  • 4-6 stale donuts, sliced into about 2 cm thick slices
  • 1 mango, diced, or other fruit you would like to add, like berries
  • Cocoa powder, for topping


To begin, combine the heavy cream and mascarpone into a large bowl, whipping until you get soft peaks that are stable and firm. Be careful not to over-stir, and once the peaks are ideal, stir in the vanilla extract. If you are not using glazed or sugared donuts for this, then you will want to add a little sugar to the whipped mixture at this point. In a shallow bowl, combine the espresso, rum and bourbon, making it quite alcoholic and strong but still within your preferences. Again, add a little sugar to the liquid mixture if your donuts aren’t already glazed. At the bottom of your trifle dish or cups, place the fruit you are using, around a spoonful or two for the personal-sized cups. Then, ladle a scoop of the whipped cream to form a medium-thick layer. Top with some grated chocolate to your preference. Then dunk the donut slices into the espresso mixture, pressing them gently under the liquid, so that they soak. Some donuts will soak up the liquid very fast, so keep an eye on them closely. Once they have absorbed the liquid, remove the donuts immediately and layer them into the trifle. Top the donuts with a thick layer of whipped cream. For the personal-sized cups, there will only be this level of layering but if you are using the trifle dish, you will then repeat the donut-cream layering steps again. Cover gently and refrigerate for four hours and sprinkle a generous dusting of cocoa powder before serving.
