1 three-eggs fatless sponge cake
1 small can (450 grams) canned peaches
1/2 packet (100 grams for full packet) lemon or pineapple jelly
1 1/4 cups thick custard sauce
a few cherries or grapes or any fruit in contrast colour
  1. Roll out the pastry dough on a lightly floured board to about 6 mm. (1/4") thickness.
  2. Stamp out into 65 mm. (2 1/2") diameter rounds with a cutter.

  4. Bake in a hot oven at 450°F for 10 to 12 minutes.
  5. Cool the pastry rounds.
  6. Cut the cake into thin rounds about 50 mm. (2") diameter.
