Ingredients

  • 3 tsp instant coffee granules
  • 3 tbsp coffee liqueur (or Camp Chicory & Coffee Essence)
  • 250g tub mascarpone
  • 85g condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4-6 sponge fingers
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder

Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix the coffee granules with 2 tbsp boiling water in a large jug and stir to combine. Add the coffee liqueur and 75ml cold water. Pour into a shallow dish and set aside.

  • STEP 2

    Make the cream layer by beating the mascarpone, condensed milk and vanilla extract with an electric whisk until thick and smooth.

  • STEP 3

    Break the sponge fingers into two or three pieces and soak in the coffee mixture for a few secs. Put a few bits of the sponge in the bottom of two wine or sundae glasses and top with the cream. Sift over the cocoa and chill for at least 1 hr before serving.

RECIPE TIPS
USES FOR SPONGE FINGERS

Sponge fingers make an ideal base for trifles too. Use leftovers in a super-quick version: pour a little syrup from any canned fruit over the fingers to soak them, then top with cream and the fruit from the can.

STORING LEFTOVER CONDENSED MILK

Once opened, the remaining condensed milk can be stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to three months.
