This magical Italian dessert is claimed to be divine in taste, made in a rather elaborate process (perhaps you don't often find ladyfingers to be used in a sweet dish!) with eggs, mascarpone cheese, ladyfingers, cream, espresso coffee, liquor (brandy, marsala, rum etc.,), sugar and cocoa or grated chocolate.


Coffee syrup

Custard filling


Coffee syrup

  1. In small saucepan, bring water to a boil.
  2. Remove from heat.
  3. Stir in sugar, instant coffee and vanilla extract.
  4. Set aside.

Custard filling

  1. In top of double boiler, whisk together soy milk, sugar, egg product, flour and tofu.
  2. Set pan over simmering (not boiling) water, and cook, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens, about 8 minutes.
  3. Stir in vanilla extract.
  4. Remove pan from water, and let cool.
  5. Cover, and refrigerate until chilled.

To assemble

  1. Line a long rectangular pâté mold with plastic wrap (alternatively, use a large, unlined soufflé dish) place half the ladyfingers in layer on bottom.
  2. Brush ladyfingers with coffee syrup.
  3. In small bowl, combine cocoa and cinnamon.
  4. Spread half custard mixture on top of ladyfingers.
  5. Sprinkle with some cocoa-cinnamon mixture.
  6. Repeat with remaining ladyfingers, syrup and custard, topping custard with dusting of cocoa-cinnamon mixture.
  7. Cover, and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
