This is one of my great standbys, a very simple store-cupboard pudding which everybody loves. It is a biscuity custard with a meringue topping.
Soak the sponge or biscuits with rum and arrange them on the bottom of a pretty ovenproof dish. Cover with half the custard. Soak the amaretti biscuits or macaroons in rum and set aside.
