Originally this cake is made with a vanilla custard made with condensed milk and eggs, but this is to sweet for my taste.
I guess could make a differen vanila custard and serve it with fresh berries so it will be sweet and tart.
As you can read from the title I made it with lime curd.
Beat the eggs and yolks lightly and ad to it to the sugar mixture, whisk while you do this to get a smooth curd. Heat the mixture on high heat and beating it all the time.
The curd is finnished when it thikens.
beat this to the soft peak stage, then add
you do not want to over beat this meringue.
Line a baking tray with bakingpaper that you grease lightly.
Bake this on 300 F for about 20-25 minutes
Cover the meringue with a greased baking paper during baking to keep it white, if you do not mind some color you can drop this.
Let the cake cool and spread the lime curd on top before you role the cake.
In the picture below I served the cake plain and on top I served it with grated lime peel an chocolate, chopped nuts, vanilla sauce, gellie tops and mint.
