For this weeks Funday Sunday I’ve made a selection of mini puddings which is also known as a Cafe Groument.
My puddings consisted of a strawberry cheesecake, basil infused panna cotta, creme caramel, lemon meringue ice-cream and a shortbread biscuit.
It’s a lot of work but was worth it although when I came to serve my puddings I realised that a normal spoon was just a little bit too big for the glasses but luckily enough we had some baby spoons that came to the rescue
So this week I was watching Mary Berry’s absolute Favourites and she made a lemon meringue pie which I thought sounded lovely and so decided to make it my bake of the week. I think normally lemon meringue pies have a pastry base but Mary’s recipe has a butter biscuit base.
My pie dish was a bit bigger than the recipe stated and to compensate I doubled up the recipe unfortunately this didn’t really work well as I ended up with too much biscuit base and too much meringue and not enough lemon mixture. The meringue though was lovely and crispy and next time I will try it with a pastry base.
