  • 3 egg yolks large eggs
  • 3 egg whites large eggs
  • If you don't want to use raw eggs then you can substitute 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream instead
  • 4 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Rum or you can use 1/2 tsp - 1 tsp. rum extract
  • 5.3 oz package Ladyfingers
  • 1 1/4 10 oz cups brewed coffee or espresso
  • 2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder


  1. Soak the ladyfingers well in coffee.
  2. Beat the egg whites until stiff.
  3. In a separate bowl beat 3 egg yolks with sugar, then add the mascarpone cheese and rum (or rum extract).
  4. (If you are not using eggs when you beat the whipping cream with the sugar and add to the mascarpone cheese with rum or rum extract)
  5. Carefully fold egg whites into the cream mixture. Do not overmix.
  6. Arrange the soaked lady fingers in a shallow glass pan (I used a 9x9 pan).
  7. Cover them with 1/2 of the cream mixture.
  8. Add another layer of lady fingers.
  9. Cover with a layer of cream mixture.
  10. Sprinkle with cocoa powder and refrigerate for 6 hours.
  11. I used a pampered chef shaker to lightly dust or a sifter or sieve would work.
  12. I used Schar Gluten Free Lady Fingers to make this a gluten free recipe.
