Generations of readers have written in praising this lemon delicious recipe, sometimes called lemon surprise pudding because underneath the sponge topping is a creamy lemon sauce.

However, the surprise will only be there if the pudding is cooked the right amount. Too much and the sauce will be lost, too little and there won’t be enough sponge topping. If there doesn’t seem to be enough sponge, return to the oven for a little longer.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
60g butter
1 lemon, grated rind and juiced
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs, separated
4 tablespoons self-raising flour, sifted
1 1/4 cups milk

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter with the lemon rind and sugar. When it is creamy and light, beat in the egg yolks. Stir in the sifted flour alternately with the milk.
  2. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the mixture with the lemon juice, lightly yet thoroughly. Pour into a buttered casserole or pie dish and bake for about 45 minutes.

Method

  1. If you want something that looks a little fancier but tastes just as good, give these a try.
  2. Divide the mixture into 6 individual buttered ramekins and bake in a preheated 180°C oven for 20 minutes. Have ready metal skewers that have been heated to red-hot over a naked flame or the stove element. As soon as the puddings come out of the oven, dust the tops with sifted icing sugar. Holding the skewers with an oven mitt, scorch the tops of the puddings quickly with the skewers. Do this one skewer at a time, leaving the other skewers on the heat as you work, to form a crosshatch pattern on the top of each pudding. Serve with thick cream.
