"I have been making this dessert for years and just love it....never any leftovers with this one.....you almost have to fight off the scavengers in order to lick the bowl! Very easy to make and has a lovely delicate lemon flavour. Don't miss this one...It's a real winner!"
"This must be one of the most popular pudding recipes in the Western World! My own "old faithful" uses less butter and sugar, but basically (there are several variations in Zaar) they are all the same. It's delicious after a meal of fresh fish, for some reason. "Alabamagirl" found the custard too watery. Difficult to say why, but usually I do use less than the 1 1/2 cups of milk specified. (So, try less liquid next time). "
"I tried this for the second time to see if it was really as teriffic as I thought the first time. It was. The pudding was perfect and the sponge is light. For the person who had liquid pudding, I can't imagine what happened but my family loves this."
"So glad I found this recipe. My hubby wanted this Lemon Pudding but his Mom,s recipe was a quessing one.Thanks Marie"
"This was one of my choices for the "Pick Your Chef" weekend. Overall, it was pretty good. I followed the recipe exactly, and it wasn't hard to make at all. It did separate as it cooked, just like you said. However, the bottom of it wasn't a creamy pudding, it was very watery and really not edible...I guess it didn't set right or something. I baked it as directed for 45 minutes, and the top got really brown. I'm still giving it 4 stars though, because the top of it tasted great...just like a very light lemony spongecake. Maybe if you could help me figure out what went wrong with the bottom, I'd try it again. "
"What can I say...this was so good!! I made no changes, it was perfect. This is a keeper.Thank you for sharing this fantastic recipe.:))"
