Lemon delicious pudding

Lemon delicious pudding



  • Zest of one lemon
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 50g unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup castor sugar
  • ¼ cup self-raising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, separated


Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a 1-2 litre oven-proof serving dish with butter.

Using a mixer, beat butter, sugar and lemon zest together until combined, approx 4-5 minutes.

Add egg yolks one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add lemon juice and beat well, scraping down the sides.

Turn mixer’s speed down low and add the flour followed by the milk, which needs to be poured in gradually.

Once a batter has formed, whisk egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff peaks forms.

Fold the egg whites into the batter mixture and pour into the serving dish.

Place serving dish into a larger baking dish and fill baking dish with water about half way up the sides of serving dish. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.

Remove from the oven rest for five minutes before serving with whipped cream.


  • This is a really zesty pudding- sharp and sweet with a fluffy sponge crust.
  • Resting the pudding before serving allows the sauce at the bottom to thicken slightly making the sauce extra delicious.
