Although this dessert may seem simple, the key to making it truly delicious is in the details. You need to use high-quality ingredients and take care when preparing each layer. But with a little patience and attention, anyone can make this dessert like a pro.
- 250g mascarpone cheese
- 100ml heavy cream
- 100ml strong coffee, cooled
- 100g sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 package of ladyfingers
- Cocoa powder for dusting
- In a large bowl, whisk together the mascarpone cheese, heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth.
- Dip the ladyfingers in the cooled coffee and arrange them in a single layer in a 9×13 inch dish.
- Spoon half of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers, spreading it evenly.
- Repeat with another layer of coffee-dipped ladyfingers and the remaining mascarpone mixture.
- Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- Before serving, dust the top with cocoa powder.
This dessert is perfect on its own, but you could also serve it with fresh berries or a dollop of whipped cream.
Be sure to use high-quality ingredients, especially the mascarpone cheese. And don’t over-soak the ladyfingers in the coffee, or they’ll become too soggy.
