List of ingredients
- 250 g mascarpone cheese (1 cup)
- 20 Lady Fingers
- 100 g sugar (½ cup)
- 4 eggs
- 1 cold black coffee (in a bowl)
- 1 vanilla bean or a tbsp of vanilla extract
- 20 Speculoos cookies
- Amaretto or Marsala or Rum (optional)
- 2 tbsp powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Steps for the recipe
- Make a long black coffee and let it cool down. You can flavor it with some alcohol or caramel syrup or leave it as it is.
- Separate the egg yolks from the whites and put the egg whites aside.
- Beat the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla until you get a foamy texture.
- Beat the mascarpone with a whisk, then add the egg yolk mixture and sugar. Mix gently with a spatula.
- Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks are formed, then gently add to the mixture.
- Dip the Lady fingers into the cold coffee for 3 seconds (they must be soaked but not too much) and place them at the bottom of the dish.
- Spread a layer of the mixture on top, then add some Speculoos cookies (I also dip them into the coffee), and add another layer of the mixture.
- Refrigerate (ideally for a whole night).
- Before serving, sprinkle some powdered sugar on top and then some cocoa powder.
