    I find that even if it's a little moist in the centre after a bit extra cooking time once you put it in the fridge to set it's nice and firm after that. It is after all meant to be eaten after cooling and setting.

    I make a GF version using GF gingernuts as the biscuits for the base

    The flavour was brilliant but it wouldn't set in the Varoma. I cooked it for another 60+ mins over the reccommended times and eventually had to cook it in the oven for 15mins on 180C. It had started to set around the edges but the middle was still liquid even after 2 hours in the Varoma. Once cooked it was quaffed down by 12 very hungry people. tmrc_emoticons.;)
