You can make Tiramisu too!

Recipe from the kitchen of a Florentine, Italian mother; recreated by the girls of the Florence Chateau.



1 large package ladyfinger cookies
1 cup freshly brewed espresso
5 eggs, separated
1 large tub mascarpone cheese
5 spoonfuls sugar
1 large bar dark chocolate, finely grated


Stir together egg yolks, mascarpone, and sugar. Beat egg whites until the peaks can stand and fold into the other mixture. Dip ladyfingers into espresso and line the bottom of a 9×13 inch pan. Spread one third of the egg mixture on top of the cookies and sprinkle with one third of the grated chocolate. Repeat two more times to make 3 layers. Refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.

Another option: Fold the grated chocolate into the egg mixture before spreading over the ladyfingers and dust the final layer liberally with cocoa powder.



  1. Looks delicious! Any other Italian finds or recipes?
