This recipe is reportedly similar to Balducci’s in New York City. It uses the traditional Marsala wine but adds in Brandy and a hint of orange flavor via Triple Sec and Orange extract! Whoa, could be an interesting rendition of the classic.
  • ESPRESSO COFFEE, 2 cups, cooled
  • EGGS, 6, separated
  • SUGAR, 3 to 6 tablespoons to taste
  • MASCARPONE, 1 pound
  • MARSALA WINE, 2 tablespoons
  • TRIPLE SEC, 2 tablespoons
  • BRANDY, 2 tablespoons
  • ORANGE EXTRACT, 2 tablespoons
  • BITTERSWEET CHOCOLATE, 8 ounces, finely chopped
  1. Toast ladyfingers in a 375-degree oven for 15 minutes.
  2. Arrange the ladyfingers on a plate and lightly soak them with the cooled espresso. Put half of the soaked ladyfingers in one layer in a rectangular serving dish.
  3. While the ladyfingers are soaking, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until the yolks turn pale in color.
  4. Add the mascarpone, the liquors, and the extract, and stir gently.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites with a wire whisk until they are stiff.
  6. Gently fold the whites into the mascarpone mixture.
  7. Use half of this mixture to make a layer on top of the ladyfingers in the serving dish.
  8. Sprinkle with half of the chopped chocolate.
  9. Repeat the procedure with another layer of soaked ladyfingers, the mascarpone mixture, and chocolate.
  10. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
