A crust eaten in peace is better than a banquet partaken in anxiety.

About This Recipe


2 -3 cups strong plunger espresso coffee, cooled to room temp
3 tablespoons Tia Maria ( or another liqueur, but the coffee flavor is really enhanced)
2 eggs, separated
1/4 cup caster sugar
250 g mascarpone cheese
1 cup heavy cream
250 g ladyfingers ( savoiardi)
cocoa powder, for dusting

Put the egg yolks and sugar in a large bowl.
Beat with electric mixers until the mixture goes pale and thick.
Add mascarpone and beat until combined.
It does not matter if it is marbled slightly.
Whip the cream until stiff peaks hold, and fold gently into the egg mixture.
I use a spatula, but you could use a metal spoon.
Do not beat!

Beat the egg whites to soft peaks in a perfectly clean metal bowl.
If there is any grease, they won't whip properly.
Make sure you rinse and dry your beaters well.
Fold the whites into the cream.
It is very important to retain as much air as possible.
For serving you can use a big dish or individual glasses.
If using a big dish: Put the coffee and liquer in a bowl.
Dip biscuits in coffee one at a time.
Drain well.
Layer in your dish, covering the whole bottom.
Place half of the mascarpone mix on top and spread out.
Repeat with remaining biscuits and mascarpone, finishing with a creamy layer.
Smooth surface.
Dust with cocoa.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, but it works quite well if you leave for up to 24 hours.
If using glasses: Break the biscuits up into pieces that will fit your glasses and do the same soaking and layering as before.

A hungry stomach seldoms scorns plain food.
