Recipe by Oolala

From the Multi-Cultural Cuisine of Trinidad & Tobago & the Caribbean Naparima Girls' High School Cookbook. This is dairy free and has lemon juice and lime rind...Mmmm. Recipe doesn't say how long to bake so I guessed the time. Also, not sure what "cut with a knife to remove air bubbles" means!
