Tiramisu.. Yum..

12 Sponge Fingers (or Madeira cake sliced by 3 lengthways)

2/3 cup strong black coffee

2/3 cup Tia Maria

1 ¼ cups double cream

½ Cup Mascarpone Cheese

½ cup castor sugar

½ cup grated chocolate

Line the base and sides of a loaf tin with plastic wrap

Place one layer of cake in base, mix the coffee & liqueur together and pour 1/3 over cake, put the other 2 slices of cake in a shallow dish and pour remaining coffee mixture over them. Whip half the cream till stiff, then fold in sugar and cheese, spread half this mixture over cake and top with grated chocolate, add the second layer of cake and repeat, add last layer of cake (don’t add cream as this will form base of cake later) and refrigerate 2 hours, invert onto plate, remove plastic wrap and decorate with rest of whipped cream and grated chocolate.
