Step 1

Butter either a six cup bowl or eight small ramekins really well.

Cream the butter, sugar and lime zest until light and fluffy and then add the eggs, on at a time, beating well between each addition and then add the flour and enough milk to make a soft dough.

Step 3

Turn this into the bowl or ramekins and cover them with baking paper and elastic band and place into a pot of simmering water that comes at least halfway up the side of the bowl(s).

Step 4

Simmer the large one for an hour and a half and the small ones for about 20 minutes (keep an eye on water level to make sure it does not go dry).

Step 5

Turn them out onto serving plate/s.
