Our dad has a weakness for anything sweet and anything coffee, so this is one of his favourite desserts: a delicious coffee trifle which includes almond biscuits soaked in coffee layered with custard and whipped cream. Use 4 nice glasses to serve.
- Place the coffee in a shallow dish and soak each sponge finger in the coffee for about 30-40 seconds.
- Place one layer of sponge fingers in the bottom of your serving glass. The fingers may need to be broken in half to fit. Place a spoonful of custard into each glass and spread gently over the fingers to make an even layer.
- Mix together the whipped cream and the Kahlua or Tia Maria. Place a spoonful into each glass and smooth into an even layer like the custard.
- Repeat the sponge finger layer then custard and cream until your glasses are full. Finish with the final layer being cream and dust with cocoa powder. Chill until ready to eat.
