Ingredients

  • cup confectioners sugar
  • cups heavy cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Grease your cake pan (I used an 8" spring form)

For the Cake:

  • In a small bowl, mix ⅓ cup flour and ⅓ cup potato flour.
  • In a medium bowl beat together 5 egg yolks with 1 cup of confectioners sugar, until pale and thick.
  • In a separate bowl beat together egg whites and gradually add the remaining confectioners sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla extract.
  • Carefully fold 1 quarter of the egg whites into the yolk mixture using a spatula.
  • Fold in the flour into the yolk mix until well incorporated.
  • Add in the rest of the egg white mixture.
  • Spoon batter into the greased cake pan and bake for 35 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched.

For the cream:

  • Beat 1 ¼ cups heavy cream and 5 Tbsp of confectioners sugar.
  • Add in 1 tsp vanilla extract.
  • Add in 1 ¼ cups mascarpone cheese and continue beating.
  • Combine ⅓ cup of espresso with ⅓ cup coffee liqueur.

Putting the cake together:

  • Slice cake into thirds horizontally.
  • Brush bottom layer with coffee mix.
  • Spread one thirds of the cream and cover with the middle slice of cake. Brush with the coffee mix and top with more cream. Repeat with the top layer of cake.
  • Spread the cream over the entire cake, decorate with dark chocolate shavings and it is ready to slice and eat!
