Lemon Surprise Pudding


I’m still making use of my homemade butter. Here is a quick little lemon dish, with a little surprise ;). It is supposed to serve 4 – not in my house it won’t! LOL 🙂



  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4.
  2. Grease a medium sized pie dish.
  3. With a food mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light in colour and fluffy in texture.
  4. Add the zest to the butter and sugar, and then the egg yolks one at a time.
  5. Sieve the flour and add a little at a time, alternating with the milk. Add the lemon juice. This will curdle the batter, but that is OK.
  6. In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites until they are stiff. Fold the whites into the batter.
  7. Pour the batter into the greased dish and bake for 40 minutes until golden brown.
  8. Allow to cool slightly, and then dust the top of the pudding with icing sugar.

The pudding will have a delicious light sponge on the top, with an equally delicious thick and creamy lemony sauce on the bottom. I will be trying this recipe with orange next, and it if turns out as well as I hope, you shall be seeing the results shortly 🙂
