Tastes delicious and so easy to make although it doesn't say when to add the double cream so I whisked it in after the other wet ingredients and before folding in the meringue pieces. Just before serving, I also topped with some extra crushed meringue pieces - yum! yum! - 11 Jan 2015


Really easy to make. I added some extra crushed meringue nest and a generous dollop of lemon curd to decorate it :-) - 08 Mar 2016
