One of my all-time favourite Italian desserts - the creamy (and boozy) sponge fingers are just delightful after a meal - or anytime of the day really!!
Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is light and fluffy and leaves a ribbon trail when dropped from the whisk. Add the mascarpone and beat until the mixture is smooth.
Whisk the egg whites in a clean dry glass bowl until soft peaks form. Fold into the mascarpone mixture.
Pour the coffee into a shallow dish and add the brandy (or marsala or port). Dip some of the sponge finger biscuits into the coffee mixture, using enough biscuits to cover the base of a 25 cm square dish. The biscuits should be fairly well soaked on both sides but not so much so that they break up. Arrange the biscuits in one tightly packed layer in the base of the dish. *(I like it boozy so I dash a little more alcohol over the top at this point).
Spread half the mascarpone mixture over the layer of biscuits (and I like to add some grated chocolate here also). Add another layer of soaked biscuits and then another layer of mascarpone, smoothing the top layer neatly.
Leave to rest in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight.
Dust with grated chocolate to serve!
The boozier the better in my opinion!!

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
