    Great taste and pretty quick to make - if you're not making your own puree from scratch. I personally prefer more of a base so would do 200g biscuits and a little more butter to compensate. I buy Tesco own brand and they're sugary enough without extra caster sugar. Made the error of having the oven a little too hot so did get some brown spots on top but still tasted great. Will probably swap out the brown sugar and evaporated milk next time; using sweetened condensed milk instead. Would also recommend using 2 egg whites but 1 or 1 and a half egg yolks rather than 2. - 25 Oct 2015
