  • Whip the double cream with electic beaters until stiff, add the condensed milk, lemon juice and zest, fold together until combined completely.

  • Unclip the tin when firm and enjoy!

  • Additional Information

    If you don't like ginger nuts, Digestives, coconut biscuits or similar will work just fine. If you are using ginger, you may want to add glace ginger to the lemon mixture or use it decorate the top.
