Lemon Meringue pudding

4 large egg whites
8oz caster sugar
2tsp cornflour
pinch of salt
¼ tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp vinegar

4 egg yolks
4oz caster sugar
Juice and rind of 1 lemon

8 fluid oz double cream

mix the egg whites and salt until soft peaks are formed. Gradually add sugar and cornflour. When glossy add vanilla essence and vinegar. Line 2 baking trays with backing parchment and mark with two 8 inch circles. Pile the meringue mixture into the circles and bake on 150° for 45 minutes. Leave to cool.

Mix 4 egg yolks, 4oz caster sugar and lemon juice and rind. Put into the microwave and blast in 10 second spurts until it resembles baby food. (it'll thicken up as it cools). If you don't have a microwave this can be done in a pan on the hob but it takes ages. Leave to cool totally.

Whip the double cream until very thick. Mix the cream and lemon mixture and sandwich between the 2 meringues. Enjoy, yummy, yummy

This can be made well in advance and frozen. It freezes really well
