  1. Beat the mascarpone, sugar and lemon zest together in a bowl until smooth and then stir in the yoghurt.
  2. Dip the sponge fingers one at a time into the warm berry syrup, leave them to soften slightly and then use them to line the base of 4 petite casseroles, cutting them where necessary to fit. Spoon one-quarter of the berry mixture into each pot and then cover with the mascarpone cream. Reserve the remaining berry syrup for later.
  3. Mix the remaining berries together, use them to decorate the top of each pot and chill for 1 hour. Drizzle with the remaining syrup, then dust with a little icing sugar and decorate with the mint sprigs just before serving.

Cook's notes

For a slightly more adult version of this pudding, use 2 tablespoons of limoncello in place of the lemon juice.
