  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5, 190°C, 170°C fan. Warm a baking sheet in the oven.
  2. Brush 8 x 100ml (31⁄2fl oz) ramekins with melted butter and sprinkle over 2-3tbsp caster sugar in an even layer. Separate 3 medium eggs; set aside.
  3. Pour 150ml (5fl oz) semi-skimmed milk and 100ml (31⁄2fl oz) coconut milk into a pan. Add 15g (1⁄2oz) plain flour, 15g (1⁄2oz) cornflour and 75g (3oz) unsalted butter. Cook for 5 minutes over a medium heat until the mixture has thickened. Stir in the zest of 1 lime. Gradually add the egg yolks and combine. Cover and leave to cool.
  4. Whisk the egg whites with 50g (2oz) caster sugar until they form soft peaks. Mix a spoonful into the coconut mixture. Repeat until all the egg white is folded in.
  5. Divide the mixture between the ramekins and level the top. Run a finger around the inside rim of the ramekins. Bake for 9-10 minutes on the hot baking tray.Dust with icing sugar and serve immediately.


Sprinkling ramekins with breadcrumbs or sugar helps the mixture rise; infusing the milk gives extra flavour; and folding in egg whites gently helps create light, fluffy soufflés.
