Method

  1. Heat the oven to Gas Mark 6 or 200°C. Put the butter, sugar, dissolved coffee, egg and self-raising flour into a food processor. Whizz to blend. Spoon the mixture into the prepared flan ring. Bake for 15 mins until pale golden and springy. Cool in the ring.
  2. Place the cooled sponge, still in the metal ring, on a serving plate. Run a knife around the edge of the sponge to loosen it, but keep the ring in place.
  3. To make the filling: Spoon the coffee liqueur over the sponge, then spread the caramel over. Toss bananas in the lemon juice and arrange on caramel.
  4. To make the topping: Softly whip the cream, stir in the mascarpone, vanilla and sugar and spoon over the bananas.
  5. Melt the chocolate for 30 seconds in the microwave, on High. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cream. Chill for about 1 hour before lifting off the metal ring to serve.
