What Are Ladyfingers?

Ladyfingers are a popular Italian light airy dry cookie that is made using an egg-based sponge cake batter. They are named ladyfingers because of their distinctively shaped like large fingers.

These light ladyfinger sponge biscuits are also referred to in Italy as savoiardi, they are typically dipped into coffee or espresso before being eaten.

These sponge cookies are also one of the main ingredients in Tiramisu Cake, Trifles, and Charlottes.

If you wondering where you can find ladyfingers, they’re pretty much sold in every grocery store. Just hop on to the Italian section and you’ll find them waiting for you there.

What Is Tiramisu Cake?

Tiramisu is a popular Italian coffee-flavored dessert cake that is made with ladyfinger sponge cookie biscuits.

The biscuits are soaked in espresso or coffee then layered twice with mascarpone cream in between each layer.

Tiramisu is then finished off with a dusting of cocoa powder throughout the surface of the cake.

Ingredients For Tiramisu Cake:

  4. Prepare the egg yolk mixture with a double boiler: prepare a pot with water and bring to a simmer on medium-low heat. Add the egg yolk and half the sugar (50 grams) into the top pot, and beat using a hand whisk for about 3-5 minutes or until it begins to foam.
  5. Remove the egg mixture from the heat and carefully pour it into the mascarpone. Mix on medium speed until the mixture is well combined.
