Ready In:




  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine sugar, flour and salt.
  • Stir in lemon juice, zest, beaten egg yolks, butter and milk.
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry; fold into lemon mixture.
  • Pour into buttered 6 cup casserole dish.
  • Place this casserole INSIDE a large pan (I use a 9x13 pan); pour hot water into the 9x13 pan to a depth of about 1 inch.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until the topping is set and golden brown.
  • **During baking this separates into a cake-like topping with a lemon sauce beneath.

  1. Tart, tangy, sweet and light! This was a breeze to make. I refrigerated this overnight covered with foil and it was delicious! I loved the nice pudding on the bottom and the light, airy cake on top. I am a huge fan of lemon, so this is a definite keeper. Thank you!
  2. I made this for a light dessert. I used zest and juice of two limes and used half the sugar. I liked how it turned . Thank you for a great recipe
  3. Hubbies favorite dessert,anything lemon.Will make again.
  4. Thank you Kitchen Queen for posting this wonderful recipe. It was so moist, tender and oh so flavourful. A lovely addition to my personal cookbook. Lemon Pudding Cake is one of my husband's favourite desserts. He was over the moon, about how great the cake was...and can I make another real soon.
  5. I love this! It was easy to make, looks pretty, and tastes wonderful. We had some trouble getting four servings out of it though. (My fault entirely, it was just too good.) Very yummy, and quite low fat too, which is what prompted me to try it in the first place.


I am a full time mom and wife with four children and a busy DH. We own our own business, which is a mixed blessing. One of my goals for 2009 is to go back to university and finish my undergraduate degree. I love to read, write, cook, bake, spend time with my DH and kidlets. We are a big outdoors family and are blessed to live in a small city where a 20 minute drive will get you out into the middle of nowhere! I like to hike, snowshoe, cross country ski, and fish. I also love to travel.
