Step 1: Prep the Ingredients

Before you start baking, make sure your ingredients are prepared and at room temperature. In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks and granulated sugar together until the mixture is pale and has thickened slightly. Add the brewed coffee and 1 tbsp of instant coffee powder, whisking everything together making sure that there are no lumps. Add in the 250g container of mascarpone cheese, little by little, whisking everything constantly.

In a separate clean bowl, whisk the 4 egg whites with an electric mixer until they form firm peaks. No yolk should be present in the mixture or it will not whip up properly.

NOTE: For best results, make sure that all your ingredients are at room temperature.

Step 2: Combine Mixtures and Fold in Whipped Cream

Add about 1/3rd of the egg white mixture into your mascarpone batter mixture and fold softly. When mixture is combined add another third and continue folding gently; finally add the last portion and mix until well combined taking care not to deflate too much.

Pour ¾* cups of heavy cream into a large mixing bowl then add two teaspoons of vanilla extract as well as three tablespoons of icing sugar.

Using an electric mixer with whisk attachment, whisk hard until stiff peaks form then fold carefully into the mascarpone batter mixture.

NOTE: Fold in very gently so you don’t deflate whey protein.

Step 3: Assemble and Chill

Fill an *8×8 inch square baking pan with plastic wrap that hangs over each side to ensure your soufflé can easily be removed.

Cut about twenty-five ladyfingers in thirds, so you have seventy-five fingers to layer on the bottom.

Drizzle cooled brewed coffee (around 1 cup) over the fingers, just a spoon full at a time, making sure that each finger is given enough coverage.

Spoon the mascarpone batter carefully over the ladyfingers ensuring an even layer.

Add another layer of ladyfingers over the mascarpone and drizzle them with cooled brewed coffee, then follow by another layer of mascarpone.

Sprinkle some crushed hazelnuts on top and chill for at least 4 hours, or overnight for best results.

Take your dessert out of fridge about 10-15 minutes before serving while you make your whipped cream!

Step 4: Optional Whipped Cream Topping

In a large mixing bowl pour 1 cup chilled heavy cream and add icing sugar mixture, as per your taste (approx. 1/2 cup). Do note that you don’t want to make the whipped cream too sweet as you have already added sugar in other elements.

Whisk with electric mixer until stiff peaks form.

Finally, scoop generous amounts of whipped cream on top of your

Our Iced Mascarpone and Coffee Soufflé recipe is a delightful dessert that combines the richness of mascarpone cheese with the bold flavors of coffee. To help you achieve the best possible results, I am going to share some tips on how to make this recipe just right.

Firstly, make sure that all your ingredients are at room temperature. This will help them blend together more easily and create a smooth, creamy texture in your soufflés. Leaving your eggs and mascarpone cheese out for an hour or so before you start baking should do the trick.

Next, when beating your egg whites, ensure that there are no traces of egg yolk in the mixture as it will prevent your whites from stiffening up. Even a small amount of yolk can ruin the texture of your soufflé. Use good-quality eggs and separate them carefully to avoid this issue.

It’s also important to not over-whip your egg whites – this will cause them to break down and lose their volume. Beat them until they form stiff peaks but stop immediately after that. Overbeating them will make your soufflé dense instead of light and fluffy.

When folding in the egg whites, be gentle and steady. You want to incorporate all the ingredients while keeping as much air in the batter as possible. Take your time, and use a spatula to fold in a figure-eight motion for extra precision.

Finally, bake your soufflés on the middle rack of a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until they have risen high above their ramekins and are lightly browned on top. Keep an eye on them towards the end to avoid overcooking which could cause dryness.

Follow these tips, and you’ll have beautiful iced mascarpone and coffee soufflés every time. With practice and patience, you will master this recipe like a pro!
