  • EGGS, 2 whole + 2 yolks
  • SUGAR, 12 tablespoons
  • MASCARPONE CHEESE, 500 grams (1 large tub)
  • SALT, pinch
  • MARSALA WINE, 10 tablespoons
  • ESPRESSO, 2 cups, plus more if needed
  • LADYFINGERS, 1 large package (4 sleeves of 12 biscuits)
  • SEMISWEET CHOCOLATE, 1 cup chopped or grated
  1. Place the 2 eggs and 2 whole egg yolks in an electric mixer bowl and add approximately 8 tablespoons of sugar.
  2. With whisk attachment beat until the mixture forms a good ribbon (should nearly have soft peaks).
  3. Once the correct consistency is achieved, whisk in the Mascarpone cheese.
  4. In a separate bowl, whip the cream along with 2 tablespoons sugar and a pinch of salt.
  5. Once hard peaks form, add the whipped cream to the egg/Mascarpone mixture and beat until smooth, adding approximately 2 tablespoons Marsala.
  6. In a separate bowl, pour the hot espresso and add 2 tablespoons sugar and 8 tablespoons Marsala.
  7. One at a time, quickly dip each biscuit in the espresso mixture and then place on the bottom of a 9 by 13 glass baking pan. Continue until you have an entire layer of biscuits on the bottom of the pan. (Note of Caution: Dip quickly or biscuits will become soggy.)
  8. Using a spatula spread half of the mascarpone cream over the biscuits. Repeat the process above to make a second layer. This should fill the pan.
  9. Refrigerate 8 to 10 hours or overnight. Grate the chocolate over the top.
