Recipe Of the Month - Lemon Delicious Pudding

Lemon Delicious Pudding

This light, tangy, classic Australian dessert is to my family the ultimate dessert.

It creates a golden fluffy sponge with a creamy lemon sauce. Absolutely delicious, both sour and sweet. You can pair this with vanilla ice cream but I think the best way to serve it is with fresh pouring cream.


2 lemons

4 tablespoons of butter

1 ½ cups of castor sugar

3 eggs, separated

3 tablespoons self-rising flour

1 ½ cups milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter a 1 liter (approximately 4 cup) oven-proof basin or serving dish.
  2. Zest and juice lemon
  3. In a food processor cream the butter with the lemon zest and sugar, then add the egg yolks.
  4. Add flour and milk alternately to make a smooth batter. 
  5. Scrape the mixture from the sides of the processor bowl and blend in the lemon juice. 
  6. Whisk egg whites until creamy and firm then fold gently into the batter. 
  7. Pour the batter into the buttered basin in a baking dish and pour hot water to come halfway up the sides of the basin. Create a Bain Marie
  8. Bake for 1 hour. Allow cooling a little before serving.  

I like it best served with pouring cream or vanilla ice cream.
