* 16 sponge fingers (savoiardi)
* 150 ml (5 oz) double cream
* 250 g (9 oz) mascarpone cream
* 200 ml strong espresso coffee at room temperature
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

* Whip the cream and 3 tablespoons icing sugar until well mixed
* Beat in the mascarpone, 1 tablespoon of the rum (or brandy or Tia maria) and the vanilla extract
* Mix the remaining sugar and rum (or brandy or Tia maria) into the coffee
* You can either make this directly into serving glasses or make in one dish (which is probably better for the waistline)
* Dip 4 fingers in the coffee and line the bottom of the dish (or 4 serving glasses)
* Add a layer of mascarpone mixture, a layer of soaked sponge fingers and so on
* Finish with a layer of mascarpone
* Pour any remaining coffee mixture over the top and dust with coco powder
