  • ½ pack (250g) sponge fingers
  • Cocoa for dusting
  • ½ punnet strawberries, washed and green part removed

  1. Place saucepan half filled with water onto the stove and bring to a simmer.
  2. Combine egg yolks and sugar in a heatproof bowl, sit the bowl on top of the saucepan and whisk until fluffy.
  3. Add 1/3 cup Marsala wine, continue to whisk until the mixture forms a ribbon (about ten minutes).
  4. Remove the bowl, and set aside to cool.
  5. Gently fold the mascarpone into the cooled egg mixture.
