Put 2 of the egg yolks in a bowl with 25g of the sugar, then whisk over a pan of hot water until pale and creamy.

Whisk 1 of the egg whites until stiff, then whisk in 25g of sugar.

Fold into the peach and egg mixture, then transfer to the prepared tin and freeze.

For the rasberry layer, blend the berries with the lemon juice, then push through a sieve to get a smooth puree with no pips.
