Ingredients Needed

Amount Ingredient
6 X 250ml Consol Food jars
2 pack Boudoir biscuits
4 Eggs, separated and at room temperature
100ml Black coffee, cooled
450g Mascarpone, at room temperature
Cocoa powder
1/4 cup Kahlua or Amarula for a South African twist (optional; use 200ml of coffee if you’d prefer not to use alcohol)


  1. Whisk three of the egg whites until they are stiff, and then set to one side.
  2. Add all four egg yolks to the caster sugar, and whisk until pale. Add the mascarpone, and whisk in slowly, a little at a time until smooth and well-combined.
  3. Fold the three whisked egg whites into this mixture with a large spoon.
  4. If you’re using Kahlua or Amarula, stir it into the coffee and pour into a shallow bowl. If you’re not using alcohol, pour the coffee into the bowl.
  5. Break the Boudoir biscuits in half, depending on the size of the jar you’re using. Dip biscuit pieces into the coffee for a few seconds, then use them to cover the base of each jar.
  6. Spoon some of the mascarpone mixture on top. Sprinkle with cocoa powder.
  7. Repeat the layers, finishing with mascarpone and cocoa, until the jars are filled.
  8. Top with grated chocolate.
  9. Refrigerate for 6-8 hours before serving.
