INFO & TIPS
Don't bother doing a toothpick test as it will always come out with filling attached to it. Once the center on top appears dry and the crust is golden/browned then its done. Will rise up like a souffle when cooking but won't overflow.
Crust will be almost like a biscuit texture.
Can be served with whipped cream.
