    Oh, and I wanted to add that we didn’t add and cream on top as I didn’t have any.

    Since the flour is just a thickener, do you think this would work with tapioca flour or arrowroot instead?

      Probably!

    This was fantastic! I’m made this exactly as directed, except that it took closer to 50 mi it’s and not 35.
    I would suggest people start at 35 and add a little time as needed.
    My oven usually cooks hotter so I was surprised it too so much longer .
    My husband and six year old both loved this and asked for an encore!
    I am thinking of trying a different fruit, maybe blueberrie, raspberries or strawberries with the lemon.

    I used a glass 8×8 pan with a metal water bath. Should I have used all metal pans?

      Hmmm, I’m not sure. I wouldn’t think it would matter all that much – as long as it’s a bath!
