This excellent recipe, this awesome dessert, has been remarkably neglected and apparently ignored for nearly six years and I'm amazed. This dessert is gorgeous. Delicious. And decadent. Without question the piece de resistance of tonight's dinner. This is not difficult to make but does require a few extra steps and a couple of extra bowls but oh, boy, what a pay-off. Creamy, velvety smooth, fluffy and light as a feather with just the right intensity of chocolate flavor. I made half the recipe and it worked perfectly with a 7" springform pan. I added two tablespoons of powdered sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla to the one cup of whipping cream in that half recipe. Curiously, according to the recipe a 12-oz. package of ladyfingers should have been used for a half recipe, yet the 3-oz. package of ladyfingers I had covered the bottom and sides of the pan exactly. (Come to think of it, I've never seen a 12-oz. package of ladyfingers) I plated this with a chocolate syrup drizzle, whipped cream and fresh raspberries. I was proud and thrilled to serve this beautiful dessert tonight and hope that with this review (and my posted photos) others will be encouraged to try it too.
