Repeat with four more sponge halves, sherry and spread the raspberry jam. Add another layer of four more halves and soak with the remaining mixture. Whisk the egg whites until they are stiff and then beat in the reamaining sugar until it is thick and shiny. Spread the cream over the cake and ruffle into small peaks. Sprinkle with the blanched almonds. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180C for about 20 minutes until the meringue top has set. Decorate the meringue with the lemon slices and serve with cream.

Here goes Annie, but no garauntees how everyone elses will turn out, but mine is yummy every time all measurements are in pounds weight not kilos cause I have'nt a clue about metric.

POTTED HOUGH

3lb hough (shin of beef) ask for this in one piece as having it sliced wastes a lot.

1 nap bone (nuckle bone, one from the hind leg is preferable as there is more marrow in it).

Put meat and bone in a large pan, cover with water and bring to boil, simmer for four hours, when cooked, use another large pan and strain some of the juice into it so the shredded meat won't dry up, shred and chop all the meat and add to the strained juice, strain all the juice from the first pan to the second, discard the bone, fat and grissle

Salt and white pepper to tast.

fill bowls casserole dishes etc.

leave to cool and set then cover with lids or clingfilm

Enjoy.
