Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
440g sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
4 cloves
1 strip lime zest
1 litre milk
4 large eggs
4 large egg yolks
1/2 lemon, juiced
ground cinnamon, for dusting

Method

  1. Combine the sugar, cinnamon sticks, cloves and lime zest with 250 ml water in a saucepan. Cook over a low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced by half to make a thick syrup. Pour in the milk and bring to simmering point.
  2. Whisk the eggs and egg yolks in a bowl. Pour the egg mixture and lemon juice into the sugar and milk mixture and stir to combine. Reduce the heat to low and gently simmer, without stirring, for 20 minutes, or until the egg floats to the surface and sets. Gently stir with a fork to break the egg into large lumps. Simmer, gently stirring every now and then to prevent the egg from sticking to the pan, for a further 15 minutes, or until the liquid has reduced to a syrup. Remove the cinnamon sticks, cloves and lime zest. Transfer the mixture to a deep dish and set aside to cool slightly. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  3. Serve in individual serving dishes, dusted with ground cinnamon.
