Set the oven at 350 degrees and bake for 20 minutes. Turn it off, but leave the cake for another 10 minutes, to prevent sagging.

The cream

Mix the butter until it gets creamy. Add the sugar mixed with the cocoa, then the milk mixed with the coffee and the instant coffee. Mix them all until you obtain a smooth cream. If needed, add another spoon of milk.

Spread the cream evenly over the cake. When the cream hardens, slice the coffee cake as desired.

  • 5 sp. sugar
  • 6 tsp.  coffee
  • 2 sp. rum essence
  • 3,5 oz cocoa

Whisk the whites well with the salt. Add 2 spoons sugar and vanilla sugar and keep mixing until it hardens and stays in the bowl turned upside down. Carefully incorporate the foam into the composition, to obtain a flaky cream. Keep it in the fridge for approximately 30 minutes.

Make a strong coffee and mix 6 teaspoons of it with 1 spoon sugar, 1 spoon rum essence and 1 spoon liqueur and let it cool down.

Pour one thin layer of cream into a deep tray lined with foil and over it a layer of ladyfingers soaked in coffee just enough to soften a bit. Lay the ladyfingers side by side all over the tray and powder with cocoa.

Add the first consistent layer of cream, then another layer of ladyfingers, powdered cocoa and then the last consistent layer of cream.

Powder with cocoa abundantly and freeze for at least 5-6 hours (preferably, let over night), then slice and serve cold.
