  • 4
    eggs, separated
  • 125
    castor sugar

Preheat the oven to 170 ºC (340 ºF). Grease a 1 litre dish with margarine or spray with non-stick spray. Pour the breadcrumbs into the dish. Heat the milk and butter. Beat the egg yolks and half the castor sugar together until thick and pale yellow. Add to the milk mixture. Add the lemon rind and pour the mixture over the breadcrumbs. Bake for about 25 minutes or until the mixture has set. Beat the egg whites until stiff, adding the remaining castor sugar by the spoonful. Spread the jam or lemon curd on top of the hot pudding. Spread the meringue mixture on top, ensuring that it reaches to the sides of the dish. Decorate with a few piped rosettes if you like. Bake for 10 minutes or until the meringue is golden brown. Serve immediately.
