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.

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.

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....
