Serves: 6 

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 cup white sugar, divided
  • 9 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 6 egg whites, stiffly beaten

Prep:20min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. In a medium bowl beat together the egg yolks and 1/3 cup of sugar. Using a wooden spoon stir in mascarpone cheese, beaten egg whites, cream and kirschwasser; stir until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Dissolve remaining 2/3 cup sugar in coffee. Quickly, to avoid complete saturation, dip ends of ladyfingers in coffee mixture. Place ladyfingers in a single layer in a 24x34cm (9 x 13 inch) glass baking dish. Spread a layer of cheese mixture over the ladyfingers; repeat layers, ending with cheese mixture.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for several hours. Sprinkle with cocoa just before serving.
