About this recipe: In my version of this Italian classic, coffee soaked sponge fingers are layered with a rich egg and marscapone brandy cream. It's best if you can leave it to set overnight. Sprinkle grated chocolate or cocoa powder over the top before serving.
This recipe contains raw eggs. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly and the infirm do not consume raw eggs.
it was/easy to make, used maderia cake instead of sponge fingers (due to them being unavailable ) and using a spot of brandy instead worked well. It was. A very light dessert too. Hubby loved it - 09 Feb 2012
