  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp caster sugar
  • 4 tbsp amaretto liquor
  • 250 g mascarpone
  • 100 ml strong cold coffee
  • 12-14 sponge finger biscuits
  • 3 tbsp flaked almonds
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

Step 1: Whisk Up Your Ingredients

Place your 2 egg yolks and caster sugar into a bowl and beat together until pale and fluffy. Pour your mascarpone into a separate bowl and give it a quick mix to loosen it. Spoon the mascarpone into your egg mix and whisk the ingredients together. Now add about 3 tbsp of amaretto liqueur, depending on your taste and stir through. Do not worry if the mixture is quite runny as it will set in the fridge.

Step 2: Assemble The Dessert

Mix together the coffee and about 1 tbsp of amaretto, then dip your biscuits one by one quickly into the mixture and place them into the bottom of your glasses. You may need to break them up a bit so that they fit snugly. Spoon over a little of the mascarpone mixture so that the biscuits are covered. Dip 1 or 2 more biscuits quickly into the coffee mixture and pop these on top of the mascarpone mixture. Repeat with the other 3 glasses. Finally spoon over the rest of the mascarpone mixture. Place the glasses into the fridge to set for a minimum of 2 hours, or overnight if possible.

Step 3: Toast The Almonds

Whilst they are chilling, heat a frying pan over a high heat. Add the flaked almonds and sprinkle over the icing sugar. Use a wooden spoon to constantly mix the two together. When the almonds start to turn golden brown, remove the pan from the heat immediately, and tip the nuts out onto a piece of baking parchment paper. Spread them out and leave to cool.

Step 4: Serve

Remove your desserts half an hour to an hour before you plan to serve them, making sure they are set. Dust the tops with cocoa powder, then sprinkle over a few of the caramelized almonds. Serve.
