pinch salt
200grm ground macadamia or almonds
1 tspn flour
1 tblspn melted butter
1 tspn Grand Marnier or contreau
zest of 1/2 lemon
1 tspn sugar

Place the milk, cream, sugar, eggs, vanilla & salt into blender and using whisk mix for 1 min. Add ground macadamias and flour, followed by melted butter, liqueur, and lemon zest, blend for 1 more minute. Leave batter to rest 30 mins.
