Not strictly speaking a true tiramisu, but a rum-flavoured, layered sponge cake with mascarpone filling - but whatever you want to call this, it's lusciously lovely! The original recipe (from Pirkka magazine) states this serves 12, but our party of eight finished the cake at one go, and were left yearning for more! I assembled this in a 9" square pan for neater sides, so I had a small piece of the cake left over and used slightly less of the rum and milk mixture.

- 3Combine potato starch, all-purpose flour and baking powder in a bowl and sift onto the egg and sugar mixture; stir to combine.
- 4Spread the batter onto the cookie sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 6-8 minutes.
- 5Place another sheet of parchment paper on the counter, sprinkle with sugar (1-2 teaspoons) and turn the baked cake onto it. Peel off the paper that was used for baking.
