This has to be the simplest, fastest dessert possible – make it out of what’s in the cupboard/fridge – and it takes less than 10 minutes, only needing to be taken out of the fridge and served.
NOT QUITE CHEESECAKE – LEMONY PUDDINGS
- 150 ml of juice from lemons, limes or other citrus
- Zest of 2 lemons/limes (do it before juicing)
- 1 tin sweetened condensed milk
- 15oml thickened cream
- 12 gingernut biscuits (or, on the basis that the ingredients had to be in the cupboard /fridge – granola mix with some shredded coconut, powdered ginger and extra sugar to taste all toasted in a small fry pan – just get a good flavour and let it cool a little)
Put the condensed milk and cream into a bowl and stir together. Add the zest and juice and stir the mixture until it is thick and smooth.
Divide the mix between 6/7/8 small glasses or ramekins, sprinkle on the topping then and chill until set and ready to eat. Takes a couple of hours.
