Magic Lemon Pudding

Magic lemon pudding is quick and tasty, and a favourite amongst children. The best thing about serving this dessert to children is that its a really easy way to help them with their daily calcium intake, as it is far less boring than a simple glass of milk. Another plus of this pudding is it is not costly to make, so instead of breaking the bank on shop desserts, you can make this yourself :)! The 'magic' in this pudding is that you make on single batter, and while the pudding is cooking it separates, leaving a cakey topping and a creamy, sweet lemon sauce beneath - the more lemon juice you use the more sauce is produced, I personally like an even split of cake and sauce.

  • 1 large lemon
  • 50g of butter (ensure soft not cold and hard)
  • 100g of caster sugar
  • 50g of self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 285ml milk (1/2 a pint)
  1. Grease a medium sized, circular baking dish with vegetable or sunflower oil.
  2. In a mixing bowl add the rind of the lemon, the butter and the sugar. Using a whisk, cream together until soft.
  3. Separate egg yolks from the white, putting the whites into another mixing bowl.
  4. Put yolks into the butter and sugar mix with a little flour an mix together.
  5. Now add the juice of the lemon (Strained) and the remaining sifted flour and stir together.
  6. Now leave you mix and whisk your egg whites until they are stiff, then gently fold the whites into the cake batter.
  7. Carefully pour hte mixture into the baking dish and bake at 150 for around 40 minutes until golden in colour.
  8. Eat warm or allow to cool to allow the sauce to completely separate from the cake.
Hope this recipe works well for you :) I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to be cooking next week just yet, I'm thinking along hte lines of a savoury snack or appetiser. If you have any requests leave a comment letting me know :)

Thanks for stopping by!
