On Ama Waterways’ Zambezi Queen which sails in Africa, Head Chef Josephine has lovingly provided this amazing recipe – so enjoy!


Biscuit Crust:
A scant ½ cup Brazil nuts, finely chopped
1 cup graham crackers or biscuit cookies, crushed
¾ cup desiccated coconut (60g)
½ cup butter, melted (125g)

2 tins full cream condensed milk (397g each)
4 eggs, separated
¾ to 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons Baker’s sugar


For Biscuit Crust:
Heat oven to 356˚F. Mix all, press into deep 9 ½ inch loose based tin. Bake for 10 min and allow to cool.

For Filling:
Mix condensed milk, egg yolks and lemon juice. Pour into crust and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Whip egg whites to stiff peaks. Beat in castor sugar until mix is stiff and glossy. Place back in the oven until golden brown. Regularly check on pie as this happens quickly. Allow to cool, or if you can’t wait, it’s just as delicious served warm.
