This Bill Granger recipe is the ideal autumn pudding for when limes are just coming into season and the nights are closing in. The warm pudding has a light fluffy sponge on top and gooey custard beneath.

Lime and Coconut Delicious recipe - Twisted Citrus

 

Lime and Coconut Delicious

INGREDIENTS
60g butter
200g caster sugar
4 limes, juice and zest
3 eggs, separated
125g self-raising flour
4T desiccated coconut
300ml milk
Icing sugar for dusting
Cream – to serve (whipped or poured)

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 180C and grease either 6 individual ramekins or 1 larger (litre-size) oven-proof dish. Use an electric beater to mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the lime zest, lime juice and egg yolks and mix to combine. Add the flour and desiccated coconut and mix again, then pour in the milk and mix to a smooth batter.

Beat the egg whites until just before they become stiff peaks. Gently fold one spoon of the whites into the batter mixture and, once combined, fold in the remaining egg whites. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish(es), then place in a baking tray half-filled with boiling water.

Cook for 20-25 minutes for the individual puddings or 40 to 45 minutes for the large pudding, until set and golden. Remove from the oven and dust with icing sugar before serving warm with cream.

NZ LIMES

Limes are valued both for the acidity of their juice and the floral aroma of their zest. Our limes are the Bearss variety (also known as Tahitian or Persian), which are famed for their size and juiciness.

Bearss are in fact a hybrid of a lemon and a Key lime, hence the larger size and lower acidity (when compared to the very tart Key lime). They are the most widely cultivated and consumed lime in the world. Originally from Western Asia, they were first grown on a larger scale in Persia and southern Iraq.

Limes really pack a punch in the flavour stakes, and are a key ingredient in Mexican, Vietnamese and Thai dishes.

Limes are harvested when dark to pale green. A yellow lime signifies full maturity and maximum juice content.
