This delicious lemon and lime ginger crunch is easy to make in just a few simple steps.

It is easy to bake as there is no-bake involved and only takes fifteen minutes to prepare from start to finish – perfect for an emergency dessert!

The citrus contrasts between the lemon and lime flavours is delicious against the crunchy texture, provided by the addition of gingernut biscuits.

Ingredients

  • 250g (8oz) gingernuts
  • 125g (4oz) butter, melted
  • 200ml (7fl oz) double cream
  • 397g can condensed milk
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 20cm (8in) loose-based sandwich tin, buttered

Method

  • Put the biscuits in a polybag and crush them with a rolling pin — evenly but not too finely. Mix them into the melted butter. Press 200g (7oz) of the mixture — just over half of it — into the base of the tin. Chill.

  • Whip the cream in a bowl and stir in the condensed milk, lemon and lime zest and 10-12 tablespoons juice. Spoon the lemon-and-lime juice mixture over the biscuit base, smooth the top and sprinkle with the rest of the biscuit mixture. Chill overnight until set firm.

  • Take out of the tin and slice for serving.
