Ingredients

  • drizzle of sunflower oil for greasing

    Sunflower oil

    A variety of oils can be used for baking. Sunflower is the one we use most often at Good Food as…

  • 1 ½ packs (about 300g) buttery biscuits (we used Fox's Crinkle Crunch Butter)
  • 2 lemons, 1 zested and juiced, 1 sliced to serve
    Lemon

    Oval in shape, with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile fruits…

  • 400g mascarpone
  • 400ml double cream
  • 25g icing sugar
  • 100g lemon curd
  • 10 mini meringues

Method

  1. Grease and line a 900g loaf tin with baking parchment. Line the base with a row of biscuits. In a bowl, whisk the lemon zest and juice, mascarpone, cream, sugar and 50g lemon curd until thick and holding its shape. Transfer roughly 1 /4 of the mixture to a bowl and chill in the fridge for later.

  2. Layer the mascarpone and biscuits into the tin, and add the remaining lemon curd in spoonfuls between the layers. Break some biscuits to fill any gaps. You should have about four layers of biscuits, finishing with a layer of cream. Wrap the tin in cling film and chill for at least 8 hrs, or up to 48 hrs.

  3. When you’re ready to serve, unwrap the tin and turn the pudding out onto a platter or board. Peel off the parchment. Crush 4 of the mini meringues to a rubble texture and stir through the reserved mascarpone mix. Spread across the top of the pudding, then press the remaining mini meringues and lemon slices on top. Leftovers will keep for one day.
