Queen of puddings is lovely, it's a lemon flavoured kind of sponge base with a layer of jam, then meringue piped on top. Mary berry did it recently on GBBO and my mum used to make it when we were kids, proper nursery comfort food!

J- Jalousie I remember making this at school!

Q is for Queen Cakes - here

Basically a simple sponge, but baked in fairy-cake cases. A nice easy recipe for young bakers.
