Ingredients

  • For the coffee sponge:
  • 60g (2oz) butter
  • 60g (2oz) golden caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp instant coffee granules, dissolved in 1 tbsp boiling water
  • 1 medium egg
  • 60g (2oz) self-raising flour
  • For the filling:
  • 2 tbsp coffee liqueur (such as Kalhua or Tia Maria)
  • 397g canned caramel (we used Nestlé)
  • 2 bananas, sliced
  • Juice of ½ a lemon
  • For the topping:
  • 300ml (½ pint) double cream
  • 200g (7oz) mascarpone
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or bean paste
  • 1 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 60g (2oz) milk chocolate, broken into squares
  • 20cm (8in) metal flan ring on a lined baking tray

Method

  • Heat the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C. Put the butter, sugar, dissolved coffee, egg and self-raising flour into a food processor. Whizz to blend. Spoon the mixture into the prepared flan ring. Bake for 15 mins until pale golden and springy. Cool in the ring.

  • Place the cooled sponge, still in the metal ring, on a serving plate. Run a knife around the edge of the sponge to loosen it, but keep the ring in place.

  • To make the filling: Spoon the coffee liqueur over the sponge, then spread the caramel over. Toss bananas in the lemon juice and arrange on caramel.

  • To make the topping: Softly whip the cream, stir in the mascarpone, vanilla and sugar and spoon over the bananas.

  • Melt the chocolate for 30 seconds in the microwave, on High. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cream. Chill for about 1 hour before lifting off the metal ring to serve.

No time to make a sponge? Line a flan dish with half a packet (about 12) of sponge finger biscuits, instead.
