Maple Cheesecake Pudding

About a year ago I posted a recipe titled Pudding That Tastes Like Mom's Cheesecake, a take on her cheesecake recipe in a no bake form.  I played around with it a bit to come up with this one.  It's extremely creamy and rich and takes no time to make.  A little goes a long way!

8 ounces cold whipping cream
1/4 tsp powdered gelatin
8 ounces mascarpone cheese
4 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
8 ounces sour cream
3/4 cup dark amber maple syrup plus more for drizzling
Chopped pecans for serving

Place the whipping cream in a cold bowl and sprinkle with the gelatin.  Whip the cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.  refrigerate while you move on.
In a large mixing bowl cream the mascarpone, cream cheese sugar, vanilla and maple syrup.  Stir in the sour cream thoroughly.  Fold in the whipped cream and refrigerate at least an hour before serving.
When ready to serve, scoop some pudding into small dessert dishes, sprinkle with a few chopped pecans and drizzle with a little maple syrup.


  1. This looks wonderful! I'm going to have to try this one. I make my own mascarpone and am always looking for great ways to use it up :-)

  2. I saw your recipe for mascarpone and I'm going to try it soon. And thanks for the heads up!
