Made in collaboration with Catherine Fulvio. Crumbled up lady fingers are drizzled in sweet coffee syrup and layered with a creamy filling and juicy strawberries to make this fruity twist on the classic Italian dessert. This no bake dessert-in-a-jar takes just minutes to make and is perfect served at a barbecue or summer picnic.
For the Coffee Syrup
150ml Strong Coffee
60g Siúcra Light Golden Brown Sugar
For the Filling
50g Siúcra Icing Sugar
2 tbsp Almond Liqueur (or 3 tbsp orange juice)
15 Savoiardi (Ladyfingers), finely crushed
100g Strawberries, hulled and sliced
Cocoa Powder, for dusting
2 tbsp Toasted Almond flakes
Beat together the cream, mascarpone, Siúcra Icing Sugar and almond liqueur in a bowl until softly whipped.
Spoon some of the crushed ladyfingers into the glasses.
Spoon a layer of mascarpone mix on top and spoon over some coffee syrup.
Arrange the strawberry slices and complete with mascarpone cream.
Dust each with a little cocoa powder and sprinkle over the almond flakes before serving.
