This is one of my favourite cakes.It’s perfect for hot summer days, loaded with coffee and rum, straight out of fridge…mmmm, it can’t get any better. I personally don’t have problems with unprocessed eggs, but if you do, feel free to cook them over the bain marie before mixing them with cheese.

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 400 gr lady fingers
  • 600 ml hot coffee
  • 500 gr mascarpone cheese
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 4 egg whites
  • 10 tbsp sugar
  • Rum

 

Cook coffee and set aside while you prepare the cream.

Mix with standing mixer 5 egg yolks with 10 tbsp sugar for about 5 minutes.

Soak and arrange another layer of biscuits. If you have spent all of the coffee, add another half of it and add another two taps of rum. Spread another half of the cream all over the biscuits and sprinkle generously with cocoa.
