Lemon delicious pudding ingredients

  • 1 large lemon – zested and juiced
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • ¼ cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla paste
  • 1 tablespoon icing sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 170°C. Grease a one litre capacity ovenproof dish and set aside.
  • Carefully separate the eggs. Using electric beaters, beat together the butter, sugar and lemon rind until combined.
  • Add the egg yolks one at a time, beating between each one.
  • Add the vanilla, then beat in the lemon juice.
  • Beat in the flour and at a slow stirring speed, slowly add the milk. The mixture will likely begin to appear curdled, don’t panic, continue on!
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites into stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the lemon mixture.
  • Pour the pudding mixture into the greased ovenproof dish.
  • Create a water bath by putting the ovenproof dish into a lasagne dish or roasting dish. Fill the bigger dish with water half way up the side of the pudding dish.
  • Bake the pudding for 40 minutes. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes and dust with icing sugar before serving. Yum!
