Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease 6 x 1 cup capacity ovenproof ramekins or bowls, then place into a deep oven tray. Evenly divide pineapple between ramekins/bowls. Put the jug on to boil.

Sift brown rice flour, cornflour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add sugar, coconut and lime zest, whisk to combine. In a smaller bowl, whisk butter, milk, lime juice and egg yolks. Pour into dry ingredients and whisk to form a smooth runny batter. Using a whisk and a clean bowl or stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold whites into the batter then transfer to prepared ramekins/bowls. Pour boiling water into the oven tray to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins/bowls, transfer to the oven and cook on the middle shelf 25-30 minutes or until risen and golden. Remove from the oven and serve dusted with a little icing sugar. 



• You can find brown rice flour at selected supermarkets and healthfood stores.
