Trish’s Warm Lemon Pudding

My sister-in-law Trish e-mailed me this recipe a while back and had I known how fabulous it is, I would certainly not have waited this long before making it.  This pudding has the perfect balance between tart and sweet with a soft extremely light crumb and a surprise creamy sauce hiding away at the bottom of the bowl.  Think of this as a lemon meringue soufflé that stays risen.  Thanks for the lovely recipe Trishy. 🙂

Trish’s Warm Lemon Pudding


60ml flour
170ml brown sugar
2.5ml salt
Rind of 2 lemons
2 extra large eggs separated
170ml full cream milk
60ml lemon juice strained
Cream to serve – optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Sift the flour, sugar and salt into a bowl.
  3. Add the lemon rind.
  4. Beat the egg yolks with the milk and lemon juice, and stir into the flour mixture.
  5. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the lemon mixture.
  6. Divide the mixture between 6 to 8 ramekins and place in a baking pan of hot water.
  7. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.

  1. I love lemon pudding, although I have never thought of making it… looks relatively easy or I can always delegate. *Grin* Thanks for sharing!

  2. I wanted to make my son something special since he did so good in school this week. He love lemon and pudding. This is definately the ticket! Thanks for sharing and tell Trish I said thanks too.

  3. I can’t stop looking at these pictures. 🙂 They’re so pretty! I love lemon anything, so you know I’m gonna try these ASAP. These are the kinds of things holiday weekends like this are made for. Thank you, and thank you Trish, for sharing! Yum!!

    • Aah thanks Sarah. I am so pleased you like the pics – I am really having a hard time with my new lens, your compliment is very reassuring! 😀 Enjoy a bite of this for me the weekend too. 🙂 xo

  4. My favorite kinds of desserts are the fluffy or creamy kind. And these look like they wouldn’t dream of disappointing me. 🙂 And lemon is one of my favorite flavors. Perfect for the holiday weekend!

  5. That first pic is really good, I also battled with my macro lens, which one did you buy? Our lemons are starting to ripen, guess who will be trying this?!

    • How rude, your comment landed up in my spam folder, sorry about that! Thank you for the lovely compliment Sue! Pete got me the Canon 60mm 1:2.8 lens. It really is a magnificent lens – it’s just the user that’s a bit dof at the moment. I am scheduling a post about it for the first week of June. I want to try get a bit more of a handle on it first… *she says bravely* I really should look at going on a course. Enjoy the pud, it’s scrumity! have a wonderful weekend. 🙂

      • You lucky fish! I couldn’t afford that one. I’m hoping to pick up some tips at the Food Bloggers Indaba next month, I am doing photography workshop, will share anything I pick up. I also need to go on a course, but I need a real beginners one.

        • I know! Seriously spoilt! Wish I could go to the Indaba but after my lens that’s it for now. So jealous that you are going AND that you are doing the photography workshop – thrilled though that you have offered to be my eyes and ears, thank you! *big hug* Would be awesome to be able to go on a beginners course together – always more fun than on your own. Have a happy day. 🙂

  6. You took such a great photo that you convinced readers how delicious this lemon pudding is! I love both photos so much. Great idea that you scoop it out too so we can see the beautiful layers. I love to try this one out!

    • Thank you so much for such a lovely compliment Nami! I am so happy that everybody likes the photos – I was a bit concerned about them as I took them using my new macro lens which I am not very comfortable with yet, so it makes me feel so much better. Have a happy Saturday. 🙂

  7. Oh my! I’d like to grab that spoonful through the screen! It looks like the perfect dessert. Plus I’m obsessed with lemon. 🙂
