Puddings‎ > ‎

Fluffy Lemon Delicious

This is one of those magic puddings that is supposed to separate into cake above and syrup below - but I'm not sure whether it does..maybe the fluffy cake soaks up the sauce. Its a quick and easy pudding that has no smell of egg at all, and is a beautiful lemony colour inside , topped with a speckled golden crust. It doesnt look very good though, kind of plebian, but it melts in the mouth!
You can weigh the sugar and flour, but I just used the cup measure and it comes out fine. Cant be stuffing around with measuring on a weeknight!

You need
A mixer or processor to blitz the mixture, I use my magic bullet mixer - just the simple blender jug
An oven proof bowl that holds 5 cups - about a 1.5 litre bowl will do fine
3 eggs
3 tablespoons of soft butter, Not melted
1/2 cup of lemon juice, or just over a 1/3 cup of lime juice
A heaped cup of fine white sugar, or 1.5 cups of caster sugar
1/2 cup cream or 1/2 cup milk if you dont want to use cream
1 cup milk
1/2 cup flour with 1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon grated orange or lime rind. Grate it fine.

Grease the baking dish and preheat the oven to 180 C.
Pour all the ingredients into the mixer and blend thoroughly. Pour into the baking dish and bake for 1 hour. 
Test for done-ness with a skewer inserted into the cake layer. It should come out clean.

Serve hot or warm or cold for leftovers for breakfast.
Warn diners to cool the pudding before stuffing into mouths!
