Prep Time1 hr
Cook Time10 mins
Total Time1 hr 10 mins


  • 284 ml carton extra thick double cream
  • 2 oz sugar
  • juice and zest of one lime
  • 1 tbs elderflower cordial


  • Simply scrape the cream into a saucepan and bring to the boil keep a close eye on it as  it can very rapidly (and messily) boil over.  While the cream heats zest the lime into the pan.   Once it boils, add the sugar, lime juice and cordial.   Simmer for a minute stirring well until the sugar has dissolved.     Pour into serving dishes - 4 ramekins or 6 espresso cups.   Chill until set before serving.    I made these and they were set in under an hour.
  • I served with strawberries marinated in elderflower cordial and Irish lace biscuits (recipe to come)
