Prep Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 300 ml strong black coffee cooled
  • 6 tbsp Amaretto liqueur or Marsala
  • 200 g sponge fingers Gluten Free Savoiardi Biscuits (Schar)
  • 4 South African peaches pitted and thinly sliced
  • 500 g mascarpone cheese
  • 400 ml double cream
  • 1 orange finely grated zest
  • 30 g caster sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp pomegranate seeds

Instructions

  1. Put the coffee into a shallow bowl and add the Amaretto liqueur or Marsala. One at a time, dip in half the sponge fingers, allowing a couple of seconds for the liquid to soak in, transferring them to a large trifle bowl as you go along.

  2. Beat the mascarpone cheese in a bowl to soften it. Whip the cream in a large chilled bowl until floppy, then fold it into the mascarpone with the orange zest and sugar. Pile half on top of the sponge fingers and spread out evenly. Arrange half the peach slices over the top in an even layer.

  3. Repeat the layers of soaked sponge fingers, mascarpone mixture and peaches. Cover and chill until ready to serve, sprinkled with the pomegranate seeds.

  4. TIP: Raid the drinks cabinet if you don’t have Amaretto liqueur or Marsala – try Tia Maria or sweet sherry instead. If you like, sprinkle the top with 3-4 roughly crushed gluten-free Amaretto biscuits.
