Hi guys! This is an all time favorite of mine! It’s also one of my best sellers from my baking days in Lahore! It’s so light and fluffy, and I haven’t tried the original version with alcohol, but i’m told it tastes just the same, if not better! I’ve updated it a bit ever since I came to Germany because there are more ingredients available here, but you can still use cream cheese if mascarpone isn’t available.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 pack Ladyfingers
1 cup chilled cream
1 cup mascarpone(or cream cheese), softened
3/4 cup icing sugar
2 cups strong coffee
1/2 t almond(or vanilla) extract
cocoa powder or shredded chocolate for decor
It’s as easy as 1-2-3. Make the coffee first and let it cool down a bit before soaking the biscuits with it. In a large bowl whip the cream until it forms soft peaks. Add in the icing sugar, almond extract and mascarpone and continue whisking until stiff peaks form. In a medium dish layer the lady fingers edge to edge, keeping in mind you need the exact same amount for the second layer. It’s always good to buy a big pack instead of running short a couple! Pour over 1 cup of the coffee, then spread half the cream mixture over. Add another layer of biscuits, pour over the remaining coffee, and finish off the remaining cream. Sprinkle over some cocoa powder or shredded chocolate and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
