As the name suggests, lemon delicious pudding is certainly delicious with a wonderful lemon-y flavour, thats not too strong yet not too weak – just perfect
This dessert also comes under the name Lemon Surprise Pudding. Why?
Well let me answer that question for you 🙂
The top of the pudding is firm and you expect the rest of the pudding to be so. However, this dessert is soft and has a sort of liquid texture to it and thats the surprise. Of course, this is my theory suggesting a reason for the name given to the pudding, and it seems to be the only justifiable reason to give.
Anyways lets get on to the recipe
Lemon Delicious/Surprise Pudding
Recipe adapted from Women’s Weekly Old-Fashioned Desserts
- 125g of Melted Butter
- 1 Teaspoons of finely grated lemon rind
- 330 g Granulated Sugar
- 3 separated Eggs
- 75g of Self-Raising Flour
- 80 ml of lemon juice
- 330ml Full Fat Milk
- Preheat the oven to 180 Degrees Celcius. Grease 6, 1 cup of oven-proof dishes (I used one ramekin and a bowl as seen in the pictures)
- In a large bowl, Combine the butter, lemon rind, sugar and egg yolks.
- Next, sift the flour into the large bowl followed by the lemon juice.
- Add the milk progressively. At this point the mixture should be partly liquid and smooth
- In a separate bowl beat the egg whites with an electric mixer or stand mixer until it does not fall off the spoon. Fold the beaten egg whites into the mixture and separate the mixture into the various over proof dishes.
- Boil some water and add it to a baking dish which the ovenproof dishes will be placed into.
- Put into the oven for around 40 minutes (or until you see the top of the dish turn a dark brown)
Remove to cool and Enjoy!
