Method

  1. Put the coffee into a shallow dish and dissolve in 150ml boiling water. Set out 4 sundae glasses or teacups. Whisk together the mascarpone, custard, sugar and 1 tbsp Marsala, if using, until smooth. Dip a couple of sponge fingers into the now cooled coffee for a few secs until soaked but not soggy, then put into the bottom of one of the glasses, breaking them to fit if needed. Repeat, using enough fingers to make a decent layer of sponge at the bottom of each glass. Drizzle with remaining Marsala, if using.
  2. Spoon over a layer of the mascarpone custard, then top with some sliced banana and a sprinkling of chocolate. Repeat the layers, then chill for 10 mins before serving.

Really great! Fab for using up after-tiramisu mascarpone left-over.

Really delicious. Even the Kids loved it (without the marsala). Great to use up a Bit to ripe bananas.

This was great - but I did reduce the sugar.

I made this for a dinner party and everybody loved it. Really simple to make. I layered banana on top of sponge and then added the custard. I topped it with some drops of whipped double cream, plain drinking chocolate and almond flakes. Would make again.

Really simple to make, and looks lovely in little glasses. My friends thought they were delicious.

I made these to use up some sponge fingers and custard, so a perfect pud in that respect. Only problem was that they didn't really set so were a bit sloppy....
