How to Make Lemon Pudding

This is the recipe for my delicious lemon pudding. This is one of my family's favorite dessert dish.

I do have a number of pudding recipes that they ask me to make, but this lemon pudding one is always first on their list. I have tried to teach them how to make this delicious pudding, but they tell me that it is much easier for them and tastes better if I make it, so I don't protest too much. It's nice to know that they still like my cooking.

There is no secret, it is just a matter of following the recipe!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 x eggs
  • 1 x tablespoon self-raising flour
  • grated rind and juice of one lemon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 x tablespoon of sugar extra

If you would like it a little more tart than sweet, use 2 lemons.

Eggs white being beaten to a consistency of stiff but not dry!

Cooking Instructions

  1. Separate eggs, beat yolks with 1/2 a cup of sugar until light and creamy, beat in milk, sifted flour, rind, and juice of top, lemon(s) and add salt.
  2. Beat egg whites adding extra sugar gradually, continue beating until stiff but not dry. Lightly fold into lemon mixture.
  3. Pour into greased, deep, 2-pint ovenproof dish.
  4. Stand in a shallow pan of cold water.
  5. Bake in a moderately hot oven for 50 to 60 minutes.

If you think it is cooking too fast on the top, put a piece of tin foil on top, so it doesn't get too brown before it's cooked right through.

Beaten egg whites stiff, but not dry!

Ready for the Oven

Serving

I hope that makes sense. There should be enough mixture for four healthy servings.

You can dress it with pure cream, fresh or frozen yoghourt.

It is scrumptious served hot, but it is also very nice served cold from the fridge.

Servings of lovely fresh or frozen yoghourt.

poetryman6969 Hi. It is nice warm or cold, but we prefer it warm with ice cream or whipped cream. Hope that when you try this lemon pudding that you like it. Thank you for your comment. Sorry for the delay in answering. Oliversmum. :) :)

poetryman6969 on March 05, 2015:

Craftytotore Hi. Thank you. They have all been tried and tested many times. Thanks again for your lovely comment. :) :)

CraftytotheCore on September 14, 2013:

I've been reading through your recipe hubs and I have to say, they look amazing.

oliversmum (author) from australia on November 29, 2012:

scarytaff Hi. Thank you. It is a very popular sweet in our home.

Thank you so much for your votes,they are very much appreciated. :):)

Derek James from South Wales on November 28, 2012:

This is a really nice pudding, oliversmum. Voted up and useful.

oliversmum (author) from australia on May 22, 2011:

Lillian. Hi. It is delicious.

Leche flan I think is a pastry/custard type sweet.

This recipe is a pudding, which you could not cut into slices, as it is too soft.

I have never made a leche flan, but would like to try one.

Thank you so much for your lovely comment. :) :)

Lillian on May 20, 2011:

yummy! looks like our version of leche flan!

oliversmum (author) from australia on January 23, 2011:

lontach. Hi. Yes it is simple and easy to make, with a great lemon flavor.

It would be a lovely treat to try after finishing your diet, fortunately I have never had to diet, so good luck with yours.

Thank you so much for your great comment. :) :)

Iontach on January 23, 2011:

Wow this seems so simple! I lurve anything with lemon in it...I remember once i had this obsession with lemon curd...mmm I will deffo try this recipe out when I'm finished my diet. lol

Eileen Hughes. Hi. Yes it seems to be a popular Recipe, which is great.

You can have as little or as much bite as you like, just by adjusting the amount of lemon juice.

It's wonderful to be able to play around with Recipes, so that you can get them exactly how you want them to suit you own taste.

Thank you for your lovely comment and also for adding it to your list. :) :)

Eileen Hughes from Northam Western Australia on November 23, 2010:

oliversmum, I think nearly everyone loves lemon pudding and this looks like it could be added to my list now that you are sharing. Thanks heaps. I love it with a bit of a bite too.

oliversmum (author) from australia on September 12, 2010:

Stephhicks. Hi. It is a great tasting pudding with a wonderful lemon flavor.

The temperature at 200F I feel would be too hot, my oven is run on bottled gas, we do not have piped in gas, an electric oven may be different I'm not sure.

You could try 200F, you would know fairly soon if it's too hot as the pudding would brown to quickly on top, then burn.

The reference books on temperature that I've checked out so far are almost the same, so I will look further into it.

My family love this pudding and I hope your's will too.

Thank you so much for your comment, it is very much appreciated. :) :)

Stephanie Marshall from Bend, Oregon on September 12, 2010:

Really sounds terrific - I was thinking the same thing on the oven temp. My thought had been 200F. My kids will love this recipe!

oliversmum (author) from australia on August 30, 2010:

mairead. Hi. I'm pleased that you enjoyed the lemon pudding recipe and yes it is a bit like souffle. As far as the temperature of the oven is concerned I have been told that temperature will vary from oven to oven and whether the oven is electric or gas (we have natural and mains here). I have experimented with settings and find that on my natural gas oven 180F works just fine. In my reference book that relates to a "moderate" oven !

Thanks for raising that point there may be other people unaware of this setting :) :)

mairead1948 on August 28, 2010:

it was very tasty. a bit like a souffle. correct oven temp would have usefull though.

oliversmum (author) from australia on July 22, 2010:

ThreeFootHat. Hi. Thank you.

I am so glad that your family enjoyed this Lemon Pudding.

The way you served does sound rather tasty.

Thanks again for coming back and letting me know your thoughts. :) :)

ThreeFootHat from Chicago on July 21, 2010:

I made this today! What a delicious custard! I served it for dessert tonight with creme fraiche and a dusting of powdered sugar - it was a hit!

oliversmum (author) from australia on July 19, 2010:

Threefoothat. Hi. It does taste pretty good.

Maybe if you get time to make it, you will let me know what you think.

Thanks so much for dropping by and leaving a nice comment, it is very much appreciated. :) :)

ThreeFootHat from Chicago on July 19, 2010:

This sounds delicious! I will have to try it!

oliversmum (author) from australia on June 30, 2010:

Gramarye. Hi. I am so sorry that I missed your comment, There is really no excuse.

We will try and get to the Festival next March.

Thank you for your encouragement and I hope you have had time to try my Lemon Pudding Recipe and if so that you liked it.

Thanks again for your lovely comment. :) :)

oliversmum (author) from australia on May 28, 2010:

daisyjae. Hi. Thank you for your comment.

It is a lovely pudding, where you can vary the lemon flavor to taste.

I hope you like it, if you get time to make this recipe.

Thanks again. :) :)

daisyjae from Canada on May 28, 2010:

I love lemon pudding, i will try this recipe out.

oliversmum (author) from australia on May 27, 2010:

JulieBull. Hi. It is a great pudding, and its nice to know you and your children liked it.

It will keep covered in the fridge for a couple of days, although it would be a temptation every time you opened the door.

Thank you for your lovely comment. :) :)

JulieBull on May 27, 2010:

I used to cook this all the time when the kids were little

Will have to make a mini version just for me and the man, otherwise we will be tempted to eat the lot!

oliversmum (author) from australia on April 30, 2010:

Lamme. Hi. It is and has a nice Lemon flavor.

Yes it is probably more Australian or English.

I have never made a Souffle, but I guess it could be likened to one.

It would be nice to know what you think, if you get time to try it.

Thank you for your lovely comment. :) :)

Lamme on April 29, 2010:

This looks delicious! Not an American pudding, more like a souffle. I can't wait to try this. Thanks for sharing.

oliversmum (author) from australia on April 19, 2010:

Brenda Durham.. Hi. You are most welcome,

It is a very nice Lemon flavored pudding and not too hard to make, and would be good practice.

I have to admit, Chocolate cookies are one biscuit that I have never made or purchased from the store. Are they easy to make.

These days not to hard to make, but have to taste nice, is the way to go for me.

Thank you so much for your comment, it is very much appreciated. :) :)

Brenda Durham on April 19, 2010:

Thanks for this recipe! I gotta try it sometime soon, not only 'cause it sounds yummy but 'cause I need to practice making a few desserts besides choc chip cookies from the box! ha

oliversmum (author) from australia on April 18, 2010:

Wilbury steve. Hi. I feel humbled by your wonderful comment. Three times, I'm over the moon as well.

Something else you may like to try is, cut a thin slice of lemon, glaze it with honey, warm it through, and place one slice in the middle of each serving bowl. I have not tried it, but will next time I make this Lemon Pudding. Thank you again so very much for your encouraging comment. :) :)

Steve Webb from Great Wakering, England on April 18, 2010:

Hi oliversmum! I've now used your recipe 3 times & it's gone down a treat on each occasion! Thanks again for sharing it with us :-)
