Recipe by laurenpie
From C&H Sugar bag: "Delicate cake on top of refreshing lemon sauce." I omitted the lemon rind and used bottled lemon juice, and the flavor was pleasantly mild. I think this dessert would be better cooked (and served) in six 6-oz ramekins (decrease cooking time).

wow this lemon puff pudding is so good. Great taste of lemon. In the first batter, I used 1/2 cup of splenda. And with the egg whites, I used the 1/2 cup of sugar. That way I was able to cut the calories from all the sugar. This is a light dessert, so yummy. Thanks laurenpie :) Made for PAC Spring 2013
