Original recipe yields 2 loaf cakes



  1. Line two 8 x 4 x 3 inch loaf pans with waxed paper.
  2. Beat the egg whites until stiff. Beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form.
  3. Melt chocolate in a double boiler. Blend in water. Remove from heat, and add egg yolks; beat vigorously until smooth. Add sugar, and mix well. Fold whipped cream into chocolate mixture. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites.
  4. Separate ladyfingers. Line bottom of each pan with single ladyfingers. Cut remaining ladyfingers in half crosswise, and use to line the sides of the pans. Fill with chocolate mixture. Chill 12 to 24 hours. Unmold. Serve with additional whipped cream if desired.

This is an adult chocolate lover's dream!! It really should not be wasted on children. Give them a pudding snack and they'll be just as happy...this is for the Mommas and the Daddies. I've made this many times with different variations on the same theme and was only disappointed once...when the dogs got into it first. :( I've added walnuts, used Chocolate Wafer Cookies instead of ladyfingers, used a spring form pan...which give it an 'ooohh lala' appearance, made two layers to give it a more interesting texture (something you can sink your teeth into), and topped it with fresh whip cream and fruit, or chocolate shavings. And semi-sweet chocolate chips work great...and easy to find. My favorite is all of them together. I am not a lover of cooking but this is one of my guilty pleasures. This is as good as anything you can get in a restaurant!!



This recipe is AMAZING! I live overseas, and couldn't find ladyfingers, so I used nilla wafers and layered it in a spring form pan. I also sliced strawberries and put them on top. Everyone I serve it to wants the recipe.



I have been looking for this recipe - a childhood favorite!
