Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons coffee liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 1 pkg soft ladyfinger cookie separated
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
Custard:
  • 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
Topping:
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon brandy
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 8 chocolate-covered espresso beans

Method

Custard: In small bowl, dissolve espresso powder in vanilla; set aside. In separate bowl, whisk sugar with cornstarch; whisk in eggs and 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the milk. Set aside.

In saucepan, heat remaining milk over medium heat until bubbles form around edge; whisk into egg mixture. Return to pan; cook, stirring, until thickened, 5 minutes. Strain into clean bowl; stir in espresso mixture. Place plastic wrap directly on surface; refrigerate until chilled, 4 hours.

Stir coffee liqueur, sugar, brandy, hot water and espresso powder until sugar dissolves. Brush over tops and bottoms of ladyfingers; let stand until absorbed, 5 minutes. Cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) pieces.

In bowl, whip cream; fold into custard. Divide half of the ladyfingers among eight 1-cup (250 mL) parfait glasses; top with half of the custard. Repeat layers.

Topping: In bowl, whip cream, brandy and sugar; spoon onto trifles. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Garnish with beans.
