Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
250ml (1 cup) strong espresso coffee, cooled to room temperature
80ml (1/3 cup) coffee-flavoured liqueur
6 savoiardi (sponge finger biscuits), halved crossways
2 eggs, separated
55g (1/4 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
1 x 250g container mascarpone, at room temperature
125ml (1/2 cup) Baileys Original Irish Cream liqueur
Coarsely grated dark chocolate, to serve
Combine coffee and liqueur in a bowl. Dip biscuits, one at a time, into the coffee mixture and use to line the sides of four 375ml (1 1/2-cup capacity) serving glasses. Drizzle with remaining coffee mixture.
Use an electric beater to beat the egg yolks and sugar in a medium bowl until thick and creamy. Add mascarpone and Baileys and beat until well combined.
Use a clean electric beater to whisk the egg whites in a bowl until soft peaks form. Use a metal spoon to fold half the egg white into mascarpone mixture. Fold in remaining egg white until combined. Spoon mascarpone mixture among glasses. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 6 hours to chill.
Sprinkle with chocolate to serve.
