Ingredients & Directions

5 Large Eggs, separated*
5 tb Granulated Sugar
18 oz (1 1/2 pkgs) Mascarpone, at
– room temperature
2 tb Brandy (Cognac preferred)
1 Pound Cake (homemade or
– store-bought)

-Blackberries for garnish

(* NOTE: The egg yolks in the sauce are uncooked.)

**Torte Sabbiosa**

1. To make the sauce, beat the egg yolks and sugar together in a
bowl with a mixer until light and lemon-colored. Beat the mascarpone
into the egg-yolk mixture until well blended. Don’t overmix, or sauce
may separate. Beat in the 2 tablespoons of brandy.

2. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites until they form stiff
peaks. Fold egg whites into the Mascarpone mixture. Refrigerate until
serving time.

3. To serve, cut the cake into 1 inch thick slices, place on a plate
and spoon mascarpone sauce over it. Decorate each portion with fresh
berries. From Chicago Tibune Magazine, May 2, 1993
