Before trying my hand at this dessert, I always had it in my mind that it was a daunting task that came with a disclaimer. Everyone had a different version: only egg whites, no eggs, heavy cream… and the list goes on. Where to start?
This is my quick version (of many!) that has been a lifesaver when I’ve needed a sweet fix:
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 container (275 g) mascarpone
- 24 savoiardi (ladyfingers)
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups brewed coffee
- shaved dark chocolate, for garnish
