1 Cup of sugar
16 oz Mascarpone Cheese or soft cream cheese
8 Large Eggs
1 T Milk
2 Cups of Espresso or very strong coffee
9 oz Ladyfingers or 14 oz Angel Food Cake
1 T unsweetened Cocoa

1. In a small bowl, using a fork beat the cheese until creamy. Set aside.
2. In a large metal bowl, over boiling water use a hand held mixer on medium to beat the sugar and egg yolks for one minute or until well blended.
3. Continue cooking/beating 5-7 minutes on med/high setting until thickened scraping the sides as you go.
4. Remove the bowl from the heat and continue to blend for one minute. Beat in the creamy cheese and milk.
5. Place coffee/espresso in a bowl and dip the ladyfingers (upside down) into the bowl until soaked.
6. Cover the bottom of an 8 x 8 dish with the dipped ladyfingers or Angel Food cake. (I have found it easier to place the ladyfingers or angel food cake in the dish and pour the coffee into the dish since the lady fingers fall apart easily)
7. Cover the ladyfingers with the cheesy mix.
8. Refrigerate for 10 hours to set.

If desired you may dust the top with cocoa or shavings from a chocolate bar.

*** Do not use a metal pan***
