 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      whole         eggs
    4      tablespoons   caster (very fine) sugar
   26      ounces        mascarpone cheese
    1                    wine glass    Marsala wine or medium
                         sherry
   24      fluid ounces  strong, sweetened coffee
    1                    wine glass    Scotch whisky or brandy
    2      packets       sponge fingers
                         unsweetened cocoa powder
    3 1/2  ounces        good dark chocolate
 
 Beat the eggs and the sugar with a whisk until pale and frothy. Beat in the
 mascarpone a spoonful at a time, then beat in the Marsala. Place the coffee and
 whisky or brandy in a shallow dish. Briefly dip the biscuits into the coffee
 mixture, then lay them in your chosen dish or tin.
 Trim the biscuits to fill the gaps. Once the layer is even, spread half the
 mascarpone mixture. Sift over a coating of cocoa powder and then repeat. Chill
 for at least 6 hours, then serve topped with grated dark chocolate.
