5. Bake the pie case for 5 minutes, then cool. Lower the oven temperature to 180°c (350°f) gas 4.

6. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter with the sugar until light.

7. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the rest of the ingredients.

8. Fill the pastry case with the mixture and bake for about 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the centre comes out clean.

9. Serve warm or cold, with double cream.
