Delicious lime pudding

Photo by: Fantabulous Design
Defeat the summer heat with this simple old-school lime pudding, which uses lime zest and lime juice to punch up the flavour. Add a dollop of crème fraiche or a scoop of ice cream for a sparkling endnote.

Prep: 30 mins. Cooking: 30 mins. (Serves 6)
Butter, for greasing
60 g unsalted butter
2 limes
250 g caster sugar
3 eggs
350ml milk
35g self-raising flour

- Preheat the oven to 180c.
- Lightly butter 6 ramekins and set aside.
- In a kitchen mixer, cream the butter, sugar and the zest from 1 lime until light and fluffy.
- Separate the egg yolks from the whites then add the egg yolks to the creamed butter and sugar mixture.
Mix until combined then add the milk, flour, and the juice of both limes. Continue to mix until a smooth batter is achieved.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites to a stiff peak then gently fold the egg whites into the lime batter.
- Pour the mixture into the 6 greased ramekins then arrange evenly in a bain marie, ensuring the water is halfway up the height of the ramekins.
- Place the bain marie into the oven then cook for 30mins until the top two-thirds of the puddings are spongy and there is lime custard on the bottom third.
- Serve warm or cold.
