    Awesome flavour, quite tart so that you know that it is lime. I baked it in a casserole dish that holds 6 cups of water nicely, as I did not have the ramekins. It came out just a nicely.

    Very good. You get to have both cake and pudding in the same dessert. I used 8 (4 oz.) ramekins. Made with a Mexican dish
