  • 150 g sugar 3.5 oz
  • 6 separated eggs
  • 2 cups espresso coffee you can dilute with water
  • unsweetened cocoa powder


  • Mascarpone Cream
  • Work the egg yolks in a mixer at maximum speeds with 100g(3.5 oz) sugar until the mixture is light and smooth. 
  • With the mixer in action add the mascarpone cheese little by little amalgamating it very well to avoid lumps.
  • In a clean container whip the egg whites adding little by little the rest of the sugar.
  • Once whipped the egg whites, incorporate them into the mixture of mascarpone with a spatula from top to bottom until you get a smooth cream.
  • Assembling
  • In a baking dish pour one-third of mascarpone cream.
  • One at a time, dip the ladyfingers in the espresso coffee until soaked but not soggy and lay them down in the mascarpone cream.
  • Then cover the ladyfingers with the third of the mascarpone cream.
  • This is the second and final basis for the final layer of ladyfingers soaked in coffee.
  • Top it then with the last third of the mascarpone cream and store it in the fridge. Before serving, dust with the cocoa powder.
