Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    2 medium eggs
    16 ounces fat-free cream cheese
    75g (2/3 cup) caster (raw) sugar
    1 tsp vanilla essence (vanilla extract)
    6 tbsp coffee flavoured liqueur
    200ml (7 fl oz) strong black coffee
    24 ladyfingers (sponge fingers)

    1 level tbsp cocoa powder


Tips

If you'd prefer not to use raw eggs, use an equivalent amount of pasteurized eggs.


Directions

1. Separate the eggs. Place the cream cheese in a bowl with the egg yolks, caster sugar and vanilla essence. Whip until smooth. Whisk the egg whites and fold into the mixture. Spoon a third of the mixture into the base of a 900ml/2pt rectangular dish.

2. Mix together the liqueur and coffee. Dip half the sponge fingers into the liquid and place in the dish. Spread another third of the mixture over the sponge fingers and then dip the remaining biscuits and lay over the creamy mixture. Finish with a layer of creamy mixture and dust with the cocoa powder.

3. Chill the dish overnight before serving.

    Fair...a low fat cream cheese is a better sub for mascarpone than grainy ricotta. - 3/18/07

  • Will definitely make this. Although will use full fat cream cheese as more concerned with sugar. - 6/2/14

  • I made this for a holiday dessert, and my family loved it. It is every bit as good as the heavier original versions. Especially, if you can make it the day before. Tastes fantastic same day too. - 5/24/14
