  • 150 ml (1/4 pint) strong coffee, cooled
  • 75 g (3 oz) soft light brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons coffee liqueur
  • 100 g (3 1/2 oz) sponge fingers, snapped in half
  • 300 ml (1/2 pint) shop-bought ready-made fresh custard

  • 125 g (4 oz) plain dark chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 125 g (4 oz) fresh strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
  • cocoa powder, for dusting
  • Place the coffee, sugar and liqueur in a large bowl. Add the sponge fingers and gently toss to soak in the mixture, then transfer to a shallow serving dish, spooning over any excess liquid.
  • Beat the custard with the mascarpone and vanilla extract in a separate bowl, then spoon half over the soaked biscuits and spread evenly. Scatter half the chocolate over the top followed by the strawberries.
