1 pkg Namaste Muffin & Scone Mix
6 large eggs
4 ounces Chevre goat cheese, softened at room temperature
6-8 ounces espresso coffee
4 ounces sweet liqueur (Kahlua, Tia Maria, Marsala wine)
1/3 cup raw sugar
2 ounces high quality dark chocolate (85% or above)
1-2 tablespoons cocoa powder
• coconut or olive oil cooking spray


  1. Combine muffin mix according to package directions.
  2. Prepare an 18 x 26 “ aluminum baking sheet with coconut or olive oil cooking spray, a sheet of parchment paper, and more cooking spray.
  3. Spread batter evenly over baking sheet. Cook according to package directions. This will yield a thin cake.
  4. Allow to cool completely and slice into 1 inch x 3 inch "lady fingers".
  5. Separate egg whites and yolks into two bowls.
  6. Beat yolks until they form a very pale mixture. (Should take at least 5 minutes using an electric mixer). Add goat cheese and sugar; mix until homogeneous. Set aside in refrigerator.
  7. Clean your mixer whisks. Whip the egg whites to stiff peaks. (Do not overwhip). Fold the egg white mixture into the yolk mixture in stages taking care to not knock the air out of the egg whites.
  8. Mix espresso and liqueur in a shallow pan or a bowl.
  9. Add some of the egg/goat cheese cream to serving dish. Lightly soak cake in coffee mixture. Lay the soaked cake over the cream. Add a thin layer of cream and sprinkle lightly with cocoa powder. Layer more soaked cake over top. Add more cream and sprinkle with cocoa powder. Continue until you’re out of cake and cream.
  10. On the final layer, dust with cocoa powder and grate the chocolate bar over the top. Be very liberal with this; you want the top to become totally dry.
  11. Allow to sit covered and refrigerated for at least six hours before cutting and serving.


  • Get fancy with it! Cut your cake into rounds and layer cake and cream into a wine glass or other fancy clear vessel.
  • Make squares or rectangles in a square pan, and cut slices like lasagna. When people see the layers on their plate, they’ll go insane!
