Eggs

mascarpone
500 g
Ladyfingers
400 g
sugar
5 tbsp
coffee
6 cups, black
Cognac
2 tbsp
Cacao
3 tbsp

Preparation

  • In a terrine whisk the egg yolks with sugar until you get a light foam.
  • Add the mascarpone, keep whisking delicately.
  • Add the whisked egg whites (a pinch of salt for better results) and the Cognac mixing from top to bottom to keep the stiff peaks and get an homogenous cream.
  • Pour coffee in a large terrine and dip the ladyfingers in it one by one placing them in a pirex or ceramic plate, preferably rectangular.
  • The secret for a great dessert is the following: the ladyfingers must keep their consistency.
  • Create a layer and cover it with cream.
  • Alternate a layer of ladyfingers and cream until finished.
  • Add dark cacao on top and place in the fridge for at least two hours before serving (not in the freezer!).
