  1. Put 150g hulled and finely chopped strawberries, 50g caster sugar, 75ml water and the juice of 1 lemon (reserve the zest) in a saucepan. Simmer for 3-4 mins until starting to soften. Transfer to a blender and blitz to a purée. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  2. Meanwhile, beat 250g mascarpone in a bowl to loosen. Add 2 x 300ml pots whipping cream, 100g caster sugar and 4 tbsp coffee liqueur. Whisk to soft peaks. Hull and finely slice 500g strawberries; set aside.
  3. Dip 100g sponge fingers into the strawberry coulis for 15 secs each side, then arrange in an even layer in a deep 20 x 25cm dish. Top with half the cream, then dust with ½ tbsp cocoa powder and top with half the strawberries.
  4. Repeat with another 100g soaked sponge fingers, the remaining cream, another ½ tbsp cocoa powder and the remaining strawberries. Top with the lemon zest and a few mint leaves, if you like. Refrigerate for at least 2 hrs before serving. Will keep for up to 4 days in the fridge.
