I have to admit that the only reason I made these was that I couldn’t get a hold of them at the supermarket, and I was planning to make tiramisu. But they turned out better than expected and tastes kind of like sponge. The leftovers disappeared pretty fast.
I found the recipe at Cupcake Project, this is just a metric version:
- 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp + 1,5 dl sugar
- 2,4 dl flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
Get your baking trays ready, lined with greaseproof paper.
If you’re lucky enough to own a pastry bag, get it ready, if not use a ziplock bag or something similar (I didn’t even have that), and cut a hole in one corner AFTER you’ve filled it up.
Beat the egg whites until stiff, add sugar slowly and beat until stiff and glossy.
Beat egg yolks and remaining sugar in a separate bowl until you get a thick and pale cream.
Mix flour and baking powder in the measuring cup.
Add half the egg whites in the yellow crem, fold gently together.
Fold in the flour mixture and the rest of the egg whites.
Fill your bag and have fun creating your ladyfingers. Don’t cut the hole too big (I did).
You don’t have to use these as an example, after all this was my first try.
Bake for 8 minutes, or until they look done.
Remember to eat the weirdly shaped ones before anyone sees them.
