4. Place pan into the Steam Oven and steam at 100°C for 25 minutes.
5. Stand cakes for 5 minutes before turning out, pour hot syrup over hot cakes.  Serve with fresh whipped cream or ice cream.

Lime Syrup

1. Make lime syrup by combining ingredients in a small pot on high heat, Induction setting 8 and boiling until sugar dissolves.



  • In the case of a Steam Combination Oven, these can be cooked faster by using the following method:  Pre-heat the Steam Combination Oven on Fan Plus at 160°C.

Place prepared pans into the Oven on the wire rack on shelf position 1.

Re-set to Combi Mode: Fan Plus 160°C + 100% moisture + 15 minutes.
