  1. Step 1

    Mix the coffee and muscovado sugar together, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool, then stir in the marsala.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, beat the mascarpone, vanilla, caster sugar and milk together until smooth using an electric whisk. In a separate bowl using the same beaters, whisk the cream to soft peaks. Gently fold this into the mascarpone mixture.
  3. Step 3

    Set aside 4 tbsp of the coffee mixture. Dip a third of the sponge fingers into the remaining coffee mixture and use them to line the base of a 1.5-litre glass dish – a rectangular one is easier, but any shape will work, you may just need to break some of the sponge fingers to fit. Spread over a third of the mascarpone mixture and scatter over half the blackberries. Repeat the layers, finishing with the mascarpone. Sift over the cocoa or sprinkle with grated chocolate.
  4. Step 4

    Chill for at least 3 hrs. Will keep chilled for a day. When ready to serve, gently warm the reserved coffee mixture with the chopped chocolate, stirring until smooth. Spoon some of the warm sauce onto serving plates and top with a scoop of tiramisu.
