  • Step 1

    Put 2 sponge fingers in each of the 4 bowls. Pour over enough marsala or sherry to soak the sponges but not to saturate them. Sprinkle over the raspberries. Divide the custard between them then chill for an hour.

  • Step 2

    To serve, whisk the cream and pile on top of the custard. Sprinkle with the crushed amaretti.
