It's nice if it's made well with good quality ingreidnets.

Some packaged thing from iceland just won't cut it though.

or not use a brwnie or cookie base?

No, you use a sponge base, then icecream, then meringue.

seems to be so many different recipres on the net how to make this!

traditionally it is a sponge base, or those sponge flan bases they sell in supermarkets <boak> but you can use a cookie dough base too.

It is esentally just some sort of cake base, a pile of yummy ice cream, and a complete covering of meringue <drool>

Unbelievably lovely if done well.

Overmydeadbody Thu 21-Aug-08 18:35:49

How about some mini ones? <drool>

Overmydeadbody Thu 21-Aug-08 18:40:15

I like making a toffee nut one, with lovely toffee ice cream and toffee sauce <drool>

I have done this one

Tis very easy and you could buy the sponge to make it easier from the supermarket.

Buy a flan base from shop.
mix up egg whites 7 sugar
stick ice-cream on flan base & put on strawberries / other fruit.
Smother with "peaked" egg whites and sugar mix
Bake in oven
