Magical Lemon Delicious

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by JustJanS

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.
