Medium Saucepan


Get Prepped

TIP: If you're in a hurry, pop 2-4 ramekins or glasses in the fridge now.

a) Pop the creme fraiche and half the sugar into a medium saucepan on medium heat. 

b) Gently bring to a simmer, then cook, stirring frequently, for 4-5 mins.

c) Meanwhile, zest and halve the limes.

Chill Out

a) Once the creme fraiche has simmered, squeeze in the juice from all the limes and stir through all the lime zest.

b) Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 10 mins.

c) Pour the cooled mixture into your glasses or ramekins and set in your fridge for 4 hours or overnight.

Oh Crumbs!

a) Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

b) To make the ginger biscuit crumb, add to a large bowl the flour, butter, ginger puree, remaining sugar and the oil for the flour (see pantry for amount). Use your fingers to rub everything together until it looks like sticky breadcrumbs.

c) Spread the crumb mixture in an even layer on a baking tray. Bake until golden, 9-11 mins, then remove from the oven and allow to cool. TIP: Toss halfway through baking to ensure an even golden colour.

d) When you're ready to eat, remove the possets from your fridge and top with the ginger biscuit crumb to finish.
