  • ¼ cup (55g) caster sugar

  1. Place the egg yolks and vanilla in the bowl  of an electric mixer and beat for 3–4 minutes or until thick. Place the sugar and water in a small saucepan over high heat and bring to the boil. Cook for 2–3 minutes or until slightly reduced and syrupy. 
  2. Pour the hot syrup, in  a thin steady stream, into the egg yolks and continue to beat for 6–8 minutes or until the mixture is cool. Gently fold the cream and meringue into the egg yolk mixture. Divide the strawberry jam between 4 x 300ml glasses.
