The top and bottom of this delicate pudding seperate as it cooks to form a light souffle like top and tangy sauce. There are a few recipes for Lemon Delicious here on the site, but this one uses less butter than most, so is lower in fat.

Great recipe! I used to make a similar one years ago, so it was like finding a long lost friend. Will be making this often, and will try it with orange, also! Thanks for this keeper.

Nice lemon delicious though we would have liked a slightly tarter taste as we found it a little on the sweet side but still thoroughly enjoyed, thank you Jan made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
