Serve: 8


  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 3 cups mascarpone cheese, room temperature
  • 140g white sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tot Brandy
  • 2 cups strong coffee at room temperature
  • 1 pack Lady Fingers (Boudoir biscuits)
  • Cocoa powder for dusting the top


  1. Beat whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla until soft peaks form.
  2. Add in mascarpone cheese and continue to whip to stiff peak. Add the brandy and combine well.
  3. Dip ladyfingers in coffee and place at the bottom of a 20cmx20cm bowl. Don’t let them soak as they will fall apart, just a quick dunk in the coffee is enough.
  4. Spread half of the whipped cream mixture on top of the first layer of ladyfingers. Repeat process with the second layer of ladyfingers and cream mixture.
  5. Dust the top of the dessert with cocoa powder using a sieve. Refrigerate for about 2-4 hours (it gets even better in the fridge and is a perfect make-ahead dessert).
