-5 dl Coffee

3 tablespoons Brandy

2 large Eggs separated

3 tablespoons Sugar

250 grams Mascarpone cheese

2 1/2 dl Cream whipped

  • Make a pot of strong coffee, pour into a dish or bowl and allow to cool before adding the brandy. Separate the eggs and set aside whites. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks and the sugar together until pale and thick.
  • Add the mascarpone and mix until combined. In another bowl, whip the cream and then fold into the egg, sugar and cheese mixture.
  • In a third bowl, beat the egg whites into soft peaks and then quickly fold into the cake mix. Sprinkle a thin layer of cocoa powder into a large dish. Dip the biscuits into the coffee and brandy mixture, taking care not to soak them for too long, before placing in the dish.
  • Continue dipping biscuits and placing in the dish, creating a layer of soaked biscuits. Dust with a sprinkling of cocoa powder. Spread a thick layer of the cake mixture over the layer of biscuits, dust with another sprinkling of cocoa powder.
  • Place another layer of soaked biscuits in the dish, again sprinkling with cocoa powder. Smooth the rest of the cake mixture in a thick layer over the second biscuit layer. Sprinkle with cocoa powder.
  • Place in refridgerator and allow to set. Do not serve for at least 2 hours, for the best flavour, leave for 24 hours.
