An old recipe of my mothers that I'm submitting for a request. I'm only guessing the prep and cooking times.

This is a very simple pudding to make. It also uses up any excess cake. I didn't use lemon rind or do the merigue top but it was nice with the jam topping. I would probably use thin cake slices instead of crumbs and leave it to soak in the boiled milk for about 10 - 15 mins before proceeding but that is a personal preference.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring the milk to the boil, pour it over the sugar and crumbs, add the lemon rind and beaten yolks; put into a buttered pie dish and stand it in a baking dish containing water.
  2. Bake in a moderate oven for about half an hour, or until the centre is quite firm.
  3. Take out and spread jam over the top; whip the egg whites and salt until stiff adding the castor sugar slowly.
  4. Spread on the pudding, return to a cool oven, and bake until crisp and a pale fawn colour.
  5. Chocolate sauce, lemon butter or apple butter may be used instead of jam.
