- 500 grs Sugar
- 2.5 dl Water
- 250 grs Butter Beans (these can be from a can, but you must peel them)
- A soup spoon full of Butter
- 6 yolks and 2 full eggs
- the zest of one Lemon
- A dash of Vanilla Essence
While that is going on after peeling beans mash them with a fork until a smooth paste, once the sugar reached the point take it off the fire and add the beans mixing well take it back to the fire for about 3-4 minutes so that it just thickens up a bit (always stirring) lastly add the butter until it melts. Once done take it of the fire and set it aside.
Let this mixture cool down a bit and then add the eggs (mixed) little by little always mixing it, then add the lemon zest and the dash of vanilla essence. Mixture done.
Fill the cups with the mixture and oven bake them for about 25 - 30 minutes.
