Lemon delicious pudding

When it comes to comfort food and winter desserts, it doesn’t get any better than my easy Lemon Delicious Pudding! A soft fluffy lemon sponge with a creamy and tangy lemon sauce underneath…. YUM!

The trick to getting a beautiful sauce is to not overcook the pudding. The sponge should be light and fluffy on top (but when you touch it, it should wobble due to the sauce sitting underneath).

Lemon pudding, lemon self-saucing pudding & lemon delicious – three names… one yummy dessert!

Whether you call this yummy dessert lemon delicious pudding, lemon pudding or lemon self-saucing pudding, it really doesn’t matter! They’re all exactly the same simple, family-friendly dessert. You really can’t go wrong with this recipe!

I love to make this pudding as one whole family-sized pudding, however, if you prefer you can divide the mixture between 6-8 small ramekins and cook them as individual desserts (you’ll just need to decrease the cooking time if you do this).

Whether you decide to make this as 1 large pudding or several mini ones, just know that you’re about to be sitting down to the most perfect winter dessert ever! Simply serve with icing sugar, cream or ice-cream for an even more delicious dessert.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Author: Lucy Mathieson

Ingredients

  • 220 g (1 cup) caster sugar
  • 125 g butter room temp
  • grated zest of a lemon
  • 4 eggs, seperated
  • 80 g (1/3 cup) lemon juice
  • 75 g (1/2 cup) plain flour
  • 310 g (1 1/4 cups) full cream milk
  • icing sugar, cream or ice-cream, to serve

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius (fan-forced. Grease a ovenproof casserole/baking dish and set aside (minimum of 2 litre/8cup capacity). 
  • Beat the caster sugar, butter and grated lemon zest together until pale and creamy. 
  • Beat in the egg yolks one by one. 
  • Beat in the lemon juice, plain flour and full cream milk (see notes). Set aside. 
  • Beat the egg whites until firm peaks have formed. Slowly mix through the lemon mixture with a spoon. 
  • Pour into the prepared casserole/baking dish. Place the dish into a large pan and fill halfway up the side with boiling water (to create a water bath around the baking dish). 
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until firm on the top and a sauce has formed underneath. 
  • Serve while warm with icing sugar, cream or ice-cream. 

Notes

The mixture will curdle when you beat in the lemon juice - this is absolutely fine. 
You'll need to use a baking dish for the lemon delicious that will fit into a large baking tray as it cooks in a water bath so help create the lemon sauce on the bottom.
