If you prefer you can make it in one large dish instead of 8 small dishes.



  • black coffee 100ml, freshly made
  • amaretto 1 tsp
  • sponge fingers 16
  • eggs 3
  • golden granulated sugar 3 tbsp
  • mascarpone 250g
  • good quality dark chocolate 1 bar, grated
  • amaretti biscuits a few, crumbled
  • vanilla extract 1 tsp


  • Step 1

    Mix the coffee with the amaretto. Soak each finger individually, not letting them go soggy. Put 2 biscuits at the bottom of each of 8 small glass dishes. Break them up to fit them if you need to.

  • Step 2

    Separate your eggs and beat the yolks with the granulated sugar until the mixture goes a light-yellow colour. Beat in the mascarpone.

  • Step 3

    In another bowl whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Fold this mixture into the mascarpone and yolk mix and then spoon the mixture on top of the biscuits.

  • Step 4

    Decorate the top of the mixture with the grated dark chocolate and the crumbled amaretti biscuits. Cover each dish with clingfilm and chill overnight or for several hours.
