This is a favourite from my childhood. My Grandmother used to make this every year for my Grandfather's birthday.


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
  2. Blend together the puréed prunes and half the caster sugar- blend for about a minute on medium speed.
  3. Beat together the egg whites, lemon juice and remainder of caster sugar until fluffy and stiff- not quite"peaking".
  4. Very carefully, fold the beaten egg into the prune purée.
  5. Bake for about 20- 25 minutes, or until the top is brown and starting to crack.
  6. Enjoy piping hot with some whipped double cream.
