3. Spread over trays in an even 1cm layer and bake six-ten minutes at 200°c. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with caster sugar.

4. For the brazil nut custard - Chop the brazil nuts into small pieces and add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix together until combined.

5. Spread an even layer over the baked sponge sheets and gently and carefully roll tightly.

1. For the meringue – bring the water and sugar to 118°c

2. Whisk the egg whites to semi peak and gently rain in the hot sugar. Once all the sugar is in, turn to a high speed and whisk until stiff peak and glossy texture

3. Spread over the rolled sponge so it is covered using a pallet knife, make sure you get some texture to the outside and some small to medium peaks sticking off. Then gently blow torch the whole pudding until it is a light brown golden colour.
