2 shots espresso (or 2 heaped teaspoons of instant coffee dissolved in 1/4 warm <
1 cup (250ml) water, room temperature
cup (80ml) Marsala (replace with Kahlua or Tia Maria)
18 sponge finger biscuits (1 packet)
Cocoa for dusting


In a shallow bowl combine coffee, water and Marsala. Break biscuits in half and dip in coffee liquid, evenly arrange the dunked biscuits into the base of 6 wine/cocktail glasses or tumblers. Spoon any leftover coffee mixture over the top of the biscuits.
Scoop 2 generous spoonfuls of vanilla icecream into each glass. Dust with cocoa and serve immediately.




Tiramisu, Italian for ‘pick me up’ is one of my all time favourite desserts. I usually make the traditional mascarpone mix however, one night when I was feeling particularly peckish and a little lazy, I made up this quick ice cream version. It takes less than 5 minutes to put together and looks and tastes amazing.
