His results -Lemon Sponge Pie
As usual Delia's pastry turned out great. I rolled it out pretty thin and had a fair bit left over. It's sitting in the fridge, I'll make a rough tart out of it in a little while.
The filling was a mixed bag. Realistically it went a little wrong. It wasn't a sponge at all. In fact it turned into a pastry shell filled with lemon curd with a thin sponge topping. I think it was because the lemon mixture was very runny and didn't want to combine with the whites properly. Anyway, forget the reason why it went like that. The important thing is that it was delicious just the way it was! I loved the stuff and so did everybody who tried it. Hooray for happy accidents!
