Lemon Delicious Pudding

Recipe by Kookaburra
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Set oven to 180°C (350°F) Put the flour, lemon rind and juice, melted butter, egg yolks and half of the measured sugar into a mixing bowl.
  • Beat until mixed.
  • Heat milk just until it reaches room temperature.
  • Add milk to egg mixture and beat briefly until combined.
  • With clean, dry beaters, whisk egg whites, gradually adding remaining sugar, until the mixture forms stiff peaks.
  • Lightly fold about 1 cup of the lemon mixture into the beaten egg whites, then add the egg white mixture to the rest of the lemon mixture.
  • Be very gentle with the mixture- a few lumps of white won’t hurt.
  • Gentle handling at this stage will result in a feather-light sponge.
  • Empty the mixture gently into an ungreased, round, ovenproof dish (I use a 6 cup capacity pyrex casserole dish).
  • Place a baking tin in the oven.
  • Place the dish in the baking tin.
  • Now, using a jug or a kettle, add water to the baking tin so that it comes halfway up the sides of the dish.
  • Bake for about 40 minutes until the sponge top is light brown and well set.
  • Serve while still warm with cream or ice cream.
