Cook Time:


  • Cake
  • 12 ounce(s) chocolate chips
  • 1 cup(s) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup(s) sugar
  • 4 whole(s) eggs
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup(s) cake flour
  • For the Mascarpone Topping
  • 8 ounce(s) mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
  • 8 ounce(s) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup(s) sugar
  • 4 egg whites
  • 2 teaspoon(s) pure vanilla extract
  • 1 package(s) soft ladyfingers
  • 1 cup(s) strong brewed coffee
  • Cocoa powder for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the chocolate. Stir until smooth and let cool for a few minutes.
  3. Line a 9"x13" baking dish with parchment paper.
  4. Add the chocolate to a mixing bowl, beat in the butter and then the sugar, 4 eggs, and 4 egg whites. Add in the flour and continue mixing on low speed until just combined. Pour the cake batter into the baking dish.
  5. Layer the ladyfingers upside down on top of the cake batter, slightly pushing down to keep in place. Using a pastry brush, brush the coffee over the ladyfingers until they are well saturated.
  6. In another bowl, mix together the mascarpone cheese, cream cheese, sugar, 4 egg whites, and the vanilla extract. Gently spread the mixture over the ladyfingers.
  7. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the center is almost set. Let cool completely. Sift cocoa powder over top.
