Les ingrédients

Pour people
  • Unwaxed lemon(s) : 1 whole
  • Whole egg(s) : 3 whole
  • Caster sugar : 90 g
  • Fresh sheep's milk curds : 120 g
  • Vanilla pod(s) : 1 whole


  • ETAPE 1

    Preheat the oven to 190'C.

  • ETAPE 2

    Zest the lime. Use the tip of a knife to split the vanilla pod in half and then scrape out the seeds. Break the eggs into a bowl, add the vanilla seeds and the sugar. Whisk over boiling water until this mixture has tripled in volume. Fold in the lime zest and the brousse de brebis cheese.

  • ETAPE 3

    Place 6 stainless steel rings on a baking tray and line them with baking parchment. Pour the fiadone mixture into the moulds, transfer to the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

  • ETAPE 4

    Check if the fiadones are cooked by inserting the tip of a knife in to the centre of the fiadones - if it comes out clean they are cooked. Allow to cool in the moulds.
