Mango Meringue Cake




Cut the cake into two round slices. Combine sugar with 1/4 cup of water and cook, stirring till it forms a thin syrup. Remove from fire and add lime juice. Place one slice of cake in an oven proof plate. Pour 2-3 tbsp of syrup over it. To prepare the meringue, beat the egg whites till stiff. Gradually beat in two tsps of sugar. Add the essence. Mix the remaining sugar with icing sugar and fold into the whites. Using a tsp make a thin border of meringue around the side of the cake slice on the plate. (This will prevent the jam from oozing out during baking). Fill the centre with the mango jam. Cover with the other slice of cake. Pour a little syrup on top. Cover the entire cake with the meringue. Sprinkle cashew nuts on top. Place under a grill till light brown on top. Serve warm.
