  1. To make the ice cream, combine 150 ml (5 fl oz) of the cream, the mascarpone and vanilla in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to the boil.
  2. Put the white chocolate in a bowl.
  3. Pour the hot mixture over the chocolate and whisk until it is completely melted and incorporated.
  4. Add the remaining cream and whisk to combine.
  5. Cover with plastic wrap touching the surface of the mixture and place in the fridge for a minimum of 5 hours.
  6. Add the condensed milk and salt to the chilled white chocolate mixture and whisk until it forms soft peaks. This can be done in a stand mixer with a whisk attachment or with hand-held electric beaters. Ensure the cream mixture doesn't sit out of the fridge before whipping as it needs to be very cold to prevent the mixture from splitting.
  7. Place in the freezer for up to 1 hour while you prepare the coffee soak.
  8. Combine the water and sugar in a saucepan over high heat and bring to the boil.
  9. Once the sugar has completely dissolved, remove from the heat and add the cocoa powder, coffee and Marsala. Mix to combine. Leave to cool at room temperature.
  10. Dip half the sponge fingers in the coffee soak until they feel well soaked. You can test one by breaking it in half to see how far the coffee mixture goes in. You are aiming for it to soak the sponge finger almost to the center.
  11. Arrange the sponge fingers over the base of a 23 cm (9 inch) square dish or baking tin.
  12. Spread half of the ice cream mixture over the sponge fingers to create an even layer.
  13. Repeat with another layer of coffee-soaked sponge fingers and ice cream mixture.
  14. Generously dust the surface with cocoa powder, then place in the freezer for a minimum of 4 hours.
  15. Store in the freezer for up to 4 weeks and serve frozen. Take the tiramisu out of the freezer and place it in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving, to soften it slightly.
