  • 175 g (5¾ oz) unsalted butter
  • 85 g (2¾ oz) caster (superfine) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup self-raising flour, sifted

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup (8 fl oz) water
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • Rind of 2 limes, shredded
  • 3 cardamom pods, bruised


1 Place butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl and beat until light and creamy. Add eggs to bowl and beat well. Fold in flour and coconut, and pour mixture into six 3/4-cup capacity, well-greased ramekins

2 Cover mixture with small circles of greased paper. Place ramekins in a steamer and steam puddings over rapidly simmering water for 40 minutes or until they are cooked when tested with a skewer.
