Ingredients

3/4 cup raisins

1 cup Mount Gay dark rum, divided, plus 2 tablespoons

6 extra-large egg yolks, at room temperature

1/2 cup sugar

16 to 18 ounces Italian mascarpone cheese

3/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice, divided (2 oranges)

1 1/2 teaspoons good vanilla extract

Seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean

24 to 30 Italian ladyfingers, or savoiardi

Semisweet chocolate, shaved

Directions

  1. Place the raisins and 2 tablespoons of rum in a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the microwave on high for 1 minute. Uncover and set aside to cool.
  2. Beat the egg yolks and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on high speed for 5 minutes, until very thick and light yellow. Lower the speed to low and mix in the mascarpone until smooth. With the mixer still on low, add 1/2 cup of rum, 1/4 cup of orange juice, the vanilla extract, and the seeds from the vanilla bean. Stir until combined.
  3. Pour the remaining 1/2 cup of rum and remaining 1/2 cup of orange juice in a shallow bowl. Dip one side of each ladyfinger quickly in the rum mixture and place them in one layer in a 9 by 11 by 2-inch rectangular or oval dish. Break the ladyfingers in smaller pieces and dip them in the rum mixture to fill the spaces. Sprinkle half the rum-soaked raisins evenly on top. Pour half the mascarpone mixture over and spread evenly. Repeat the layers of dipped ladyfingers, rum-soaked raisins, and mascarpone mixture. Smooth the top, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, but preferably overnight.
  4. Before serving, sprinkle the top with the shaved chocolate and serve cold.
