When you have limes aplenty, (thanks to all the friends who keep dropping them by) it is always a good excuse to break out a favourite dessert. We are just loving this one this winter. Although I would normally associate limes with summer, they are plentiful in the winter here in Perth. So perfect comfort food dessert it is!
Really a steamed custard of sorts it is fresh, lovely hot or cold and really really delicious. As the name promises. Keep those limes coming everyone.
Best of all, come join us on the Insider Club to have extra Thermomixery each and every month! #recipesthatwork #youcandoit
- 4 eggs separated
- 30 Grams Butter BUY
- 3 limes, finely zested and 130g juice
- 10 Drops doTERRA Lime oil (optional but so worth it) BUY
- 110 Grams Raw Caster Sugar BUY
- 35 Grams Plain Flour
- 250 Grams milk
- icing sugar for finishing
Butter a 5 cup capacity ovenproof dish and set aside. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Place egg whites into the Thermomix bowl and whip 4 min/Butterfly/37°C/speed 3. Remove from bowl and set aside.
Place the butter into the Thermomix bowl and melt 2 min/45°C/speed 1. Insert the Butterfly again.
Zest the limes directly into the Thermomix bowl and add the yolks and sugar. Mix 3 min/Butterfly/speed 3. Remove Butterfly.
Add juice, lime oil, flour and milk and blend 10 sec/speed 4. Return the whipped egg whites to the bowl and combine 17 sec/Interval/dough setting until just combined. It will look lumpy and a little separated. This is ok.
Transfer to the greased baking dish and place into a larger baking dish containing cold water to come halfway up the sides. Bake 40 minutes until golden and just set.
Dust generously with icing sugar and it is best served warm, though no-one complained about it when cold either. Completely delicious.
