MizzNezz, this was just the light, tasty treat I was looking for! No fuss, no muss and just enough to suit my needs. This recipe made just enough to fill 3 dessert cups. Nice and lemony with just the right amount of sweet and tangy flavor! You saved the day, once again, Nezz! Thank you!

This has such flavour! The lemon extract is a nice addition. However, I had a slight curdling, which may have been my fault, I don't know. To make sure THAT didn't happen again, I first combined the sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Then I stirred in the egg yolks. Next, the juice, extract, and 1/3 cup water. Then 1 cup hot water. Cooked everything and it was beautiful! Will definitely make this again and again!

This came out wonderfully! I didn't have lemon extract so I used vanilla, and I used a sugar substitute, but kept everything else the same. It was really easy, and I will definitely make it again!

This is a great lemon pudding recipe! I didn't have the lemon extract, but I really wanted to make the recipe, so I just added a bit more lemon juice. It has a lovely lemony flavour - I'm sure the extract would have only enhanced it! Thanks for posting such an easy and tasty recipe, MizzNezz!

So simple and easy! Didn't have enough lemon juice so I cut up the seedless rind and put it in with the yolks and finished it off with a piece of butter when taking it off the stove. Could not believe the flavor and creamy texture? Next time it will go into a pie shell!

I am a very experienced cook and baker, and this was just awful! I have made lemon curd dozens and dozens of time and it always comes out beautifully. This "pudding" took forever to thicken, in fact, I needed to add additional cornstarch. The recipe was vague.. when do you add salt? How long do you cook before it gets thick?...etc. I would NEVER make this again, and I am sorry I wasted wonderful ingredients for this disaster of a recipe!

This is just what a lemon pudding should be! This recipe shouldn't be compared to pudding made from a box. It's an almost translucent mixture of lemony bliss! My aunt and I used to make lemon pudding when I was little and this brings back those delicious memories! Thanks MizzNezz!

This isn't what I thought it would be. I guess it would make an okay pie filling but I was looking for more of a think creamy pudding. Its lemon-y though.

I tweaked this a little according to what I had; used orange extract instead of lemon, and added some lemon zest and a little vanilla extract to it. Both Grandma and Mom were surprised by my "pudding", as it came out much more like lemon curd, but everyone loved the flavor. I might add a bit of milk or something next time, to make it more of the expected, Jell-o type pudding, but five stars for taste
