    1. Soak the gelatine in a few tablespoons of the cold milk in a heatproof bowl for a few minutes. After soaking, set the bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water and stir until the gelatine has dissolved.
    2. In another saucepan, combine the remainder of the milk with the cream, caster sugar and lemon juice and zest. Mix until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. Stir in the gelatine then stir occasionally until nearly cold. Pour into a chilled mould then place in the fridge. To serve, remove from the fridge, invert over a serving plate and slice.
