For the biscuit dough

- 4 eggs

- 120 g sugar

- 120 g flour

- Lemon and orange zest

For the filling

- 70 ml cream for desserts

- a tablespoon of condensed milk

- Extra Valle del Crati orange marmalade

- 100 g dark chocolate 


In a bowl, beat the eggs with the sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. We add lemon and orange zest, sift in the flour a little at a time and gently stir the mixture from the bottom to the top.

Now pour into a 28x38 cm drip pan lined with baking paper, level and bake for about 12 minutes at 180° (always adjust according to your oven).

When cooked, turn the base upside down onto a tray covered with a sheet of baking paper and gently remove the other, cover with cling film and leave to cool.

Meanwhile we prepare the milk cream by whipping the cream and adding the condensed milk.

As soon as our base has cooled, we divide it and trim the edges if necessary.

We fill with a layer of jam and a layer of milk cream, cover with the other half of the biscuit dough and form rectangles. We coat with melted dark chocolate and decorate the surface by creating wavy lines.
