300 gr. biscuits (ladyfinger)
500 gr. mascarpone chees
7 tablespoons sugar
1 cup espresso coffee
Unsweetened cocoa powder
Beat the egg yolks and 5 tablespoons of sugar, mascarpone cheese and (add 3 tablespoons of rum if you wish but is optional), then the whipped egg whites. Mix coffee, (rum )and 2 tablespoons of sugar, dilute with a little water and soak the biscuits. In an alternative press a layer of biscuits in one of the cream mixture until you run out the ingredients. Chill for at least 1 hour. Sprinkle with cocoa.
Usually I do it without rum so can be eaten from the children too
The meaning of the name of this dessert is : keep me up.
