Method

  1. Line the base of a 20cm round springform cake tin with greaseproof paper. Cut the Madeira cake into 1cm slices and use to line the base of the tin. Fill in the gaps between the slices with small pieces of cake.

  2. Break the meringues into pieces and put into a large bowl. Tip in all the crème fraîche and fold together. Dollop large spoonfuls of the meringue mixture and lemon curd into the tin. Don’t stir. Spread level with a palette knife, then tap the tin on the counter surface to make sure the mixture is packed down. Freeze for at least 4 hours.

  3. When ready to serve, remove the cake from the tin and put on a serving plate. Decorate with red summer berries.

I've made this twice with 2 different types of meringue. Nests and bite sized ones. Both have melted before the thing was frozen. Is that intentional? I must say it was a bit on the sweet side as well, I'd reduce the amount of meringue in it if I'd make it again. The flavors generally are great, but the balance and texture wasn't right.

Very quick too knock together, though you have to allow plenty of time for the freezing. Served this at a dinner party for friends and it was very well received. Yummy!
