Put the cauliflowers, potatoes, butter, seasoning and cayenne into a bowl and mash together to form a puree.
Add the eggs, one by one, beating well between each addition.
Alternatively, puree the cauliflowers with the potatoes, butter, seasonings and eggs in a blender.
Stir in 125g/4oz (1 cup) of the grated cheese and spoon the puree into a well-greased medium ovenproof mould.

Put the pan into the oven and bake for 1 hour.
