Oh yum! Reminds me of my version of Nigella's Black Forest Trifle. Chocolate cake on top of tinned cherries, mixe juice with cherry brandy and pour on cake, coat with cherry jam and use chocolate custard on top, serve with cream... It's to die for.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Made this last night for visitors.  Used raspberry jam and frozen mixed berries under topping.  Visitor said it was her favorite pud as a child as her grandmother used to make it .  I was a bit worried as I had fiddled with the recipe and used fruit and jam,  (the original has lemon butter in the layer).  I asked her if it was up to standard,  she said it was even better.  She said that in Tasmania where they lived 50 years ago they couldn't get lemons so used any jam that they had made.  So use whatever you have for the layer.

Good work Chookie - bringing back memories of our childhood.  Visited my mum yesterday & found OLD recipes that I made 40 years ago.

Oh yum. This sounds so good, will have to make it when I have enough visitors so I don't have to eat it all myself.

Just a question though, I thought we shouldn't use cling wrap in the Varoma?

Carrie,  didn't know about not using cling wrap in Varoma,  perhaps someone can explain.

I use it - there are concerns with some of the cheaper varieties being safe, but I don't have problems?

Its no secret I love Lemon Delicious, and DD23 made this last night and I think I have found another favourite dessert. Mmn, she used lemon curd to spread between the layers and then sprinkled some frozen raspberries and blackberries over the top.  love, love, love  :-*

It's been a while since I made this one but it was on this week's menu plan and it is so easy to whip up using things on hand.  I used lemon curd I had previously made, had plenty of breadcrumbs in the freezer and although I had no cream, I just increased the amount of milk and it worked just fine.  Normally I would go to the shop if I am missing an ingredient but it is not always necessary to stick to a recipe completely.  A beautiful dessert Chookie, I love it at room temperature or cold.  Simple but nice enough to serve to visitors.

Looks good, I have some lemon curd I made from a recipe by The British Larder.

Did you make this in the varoma?

I might have to do this in ramekins, I dont think Ihave a dish that woud fit in the varoma.

H,  try some of your dishes in the Varoma before you make this,  You might be surprised what fits.  i put a small egg ring under the dish for better steam circulation.  ( I also did this with Corned Beef.)

I have so much to learn, Chookie, but I thank you for this recipe.  I have been trying lots of different recipes in the Varoma today and I saved this one for last.  DH and DS have kindly devoured big helpings, but I confess I'm disappointed with my meringue this first try.  Never mind - something to strive to improve, next time around.  Cheerio and thank you for the recipe.

I like QOP just a bit more than Lemon Delicous
