Irish Lemon Pudding
This is a decadent dessert that combines creamy sweetness and lemon tartness. As it bakes, the pudding separates into two layers... a dense, almost caky layer on the top, and a luscious pudding layer on the bottom.
Preparation: 15 mins Cook: 40 mins
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Cream the butter and sugar well. Add the egg yolks one by one, then add the flour. Add the lemon zest and juice, followed by the milk, and mix well.
- In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff. Fold gently into the lemon mixture until incorporated.
- Pour into a 8-9 inch pie pan or cake pan. Bake for 40 minutes, or until very lightly browned and set.
- Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm with freshly whipped cream.
Note: You can double the recipe and bake it in a 9 inch springform pan placed on a biscuit tray, just in case of any drips. This results in thicker layers of pudding, and delivers a showy presentation.
