The day before Christmas I had made one of those lemon pudding cake thingies…the one that divides into two layers – one cake and one custard. My recipe came from the Joy of Cooking, but they’re all over the place. Here’s one from Good Housekeeping.
Anyway, I thought that would be fun to use in the place of pound cake AND I had plenty of meringue cupcakes left over, so I decided to use those as well. I also whipped some cream and folded it into some raspberry jam.
This is how I proceeded:
I spooned some meringue in the bottom of a bowl and covered that with big spoonfuls of my lemon pudding cake.
Then a layer of pastry cream went over,
and then a swirl of the raspberry whipped cream, which I made sure covered the edges.
more raspberry cream,
It was so rich and sooo good. The meringue gave it a little crunch.
I hope your Christmas ended on a sweet note and that you're still eating plenty of yummy leftovers and visiting with friends and family.
