Speaking of a homemade lady fingers recipe, here is a very easy one that you can start making now:
The Ingredients for this Sweet Treat
Like all recipes, you need to prepare all or most of the ingredients that would be needed in making your very own Lady Fingers treat.
This particular recipe would yield around thirty two (32) yummy ladyfingers.
For starters, you would need five large eggs (with the egg whites separated from the yolks in separate containers), 2/3ds cup of sugar (divided into equal amounts), about 7/8ths cup of all-purpose flour, and Confectioners sugar for dusting. You may also need a pastry bag of about 3/4ths inch in size.
The Preparation and Baking Process
It would be best to preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Beat the egg yolks using an electric mixer placed at medium speed. Continue until you notice the color to change to a pale yellow. Put sugar but leave about one and one half tablespoons to be used later.
Place the mixer at medium-high speed and beat until your egg mixture becomes tripe in volume and thick. Sprinkle some flour and stir.
Then, beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Add the remaining sugar slowly and beat again.
Stir about 1/3rd of the egg whites into the yolk mixture. Fold in remaining whites. Then, spoon the batter into the pastry bag.
The next thing to do is to pipe a dab of the batter on a large baking sheet. Pipe two rows of ladyfingers. Basically, you should have around twelve to sixteen in a row to allow them to bake well.
Dust them with the confectioners sugar.
Put them in the oven and bake for about fourteen to sixteen minutes or until the ladyfingers would be dry and soft to touch.
Let them cool completely before consuming. Enjoy!
The shelf life of this lady fingers recipe may vary. They would last up to three days at room temperature if you keep them in an airtight container. If frozen, they would last for about a month.
