  • Serves 6:
  • For the creamy filling:
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ​1 pound mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 and 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • ​3/4 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ​For the coffee syrup:
  • ​2 cups espresso
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • ​1/4 cup chopped semi sweet chocolate
  • 20-24 ladyfingers
  • cocoa powder for dusting
  • chocolate shavings for garnish

Instructions

1

​Begin by preparing a double boiler. Bring some water to a boil in a small pot and place a bowl over it. Reduce the heat to a simmer and make sure that the hot water does not touch the bottom of the bowl.

2

​Combine the egg yolks, salt and sugar in the bowl and place over the simmering water. Using a whisk or a handheld mixer, beat the egg yolk mixture for about 10 minutes with the whisk and 7 minutes with the mixer. Until thick, creamy and pale yellow in color. This step allows the egg yolks to cook.

3

Allow to cool a bit then add the mascarpone cheese with 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Beat well to incorporate.

4

Prepare whipping cream by combining the heavy whipping cream, confectioner's sugar and vanilla extract together and whisk until thick and fluffy.

5

​Fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone cream mixture with a spatula.

7

​Combine the espresso with the chocolate and vanilla extract. Mix well until chocolate melts and it all blends together.

8

Dip the lady fingers in the coffee syrup and place in an 8 x 8 inch square pan in an even layer.

9

​Spread half of the mascarpone cream mixture over the soaked lady fingers. Dust generously with cocoa powder and sprinkle with finely chopped chocolate.

10

​Place another layer of coffee soaked lady fingers over the cream and top with the remaining cream. Spread.

11

Generously dust cocoa powder on top and garnish with chocolate shavings.

12

​It is very important to chill this dessert in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. Overnight is best.

13

24 hours is even better because the lady fingers really get a chance to soak up maximum flavor.

​Serve and enjoy!
