Brew 2 teaspoons Scarlet Spice tea leaves in 1 cup of boiling water for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl:
- 1 cup SR flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Pinch of salt
Add, then whisk to combine:
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- Rind of 2 limes
Pour this batter into 1.5 L ovenproof dish (no need to grease).
Stir together 1 tablespoon cornflour and 1/4 cup sugar, then sprinkle evenly over batter.
Combine juice of 2 limes with brewed tea, then carefully pour the tea mixture over the batter.
Bake in moderate oven for 45-60 minutes, or until top is golden-brown and spongy. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving, to allow sauce to thicken.
Serve hot, accompanied with ice-cream.
