Lady Fingers

Lady fingers, a main ingredient of Tiramisu, can actually be made pretty easily. Its soft, sponge like texture taste somewhat like cake. While store bought lady fingers are always in long finger shape, homemade ones can be any shape you like. For the Tiramisu in a cup that I plan to make, round, Nilla Wafer shape seems most fitting.

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 7/8 cup of flour
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract (if you don’t mind the eggy taste, this can be ignored)

Steps:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Place egg white in a clean bowl, beat in high speed till soft peak forms. Add 2 tablespoon of sugar, continue to beat on high till glossy and stiff.
  3. In another clean bowl, whip egg yolk and remaining sugar till thick and pale in color.
  4. Sift flour and baking powder thoroughly
  5. Fold half of the egg white mixture into egg yolk mixture, then fold flour into the mixture, at last, fold in the remaining egg white. Do not stir, fold.
  6. Place mixture in a pastry bag or a Ziploc bag. Pipe the mixture onto a silicon mat or parchment paper lined baking sheet (they are pretty sticky, so use non-stick media)
  7. Bake 8 minutes.
