Citrus Cream Pudding



I love this dessert for its simplicity and taste. Quick to do up and ever so delicious…an exemplary dessert I must say. It tastes like a cheesecake and has the added advantage of being an authorised dinner dessert! So to create these citrus flavours we go about it like this…

lemon juice-11/2 tbsp or two lemons
lemon rind-1 tsp
butter (unsalted)-50 gm
powdered sugar-3/4 cup
all purpose flour (maida)-1/4 cup
milk-1 cup
eggs-2 (yolk and white separated)
baking powder-1/2 tsp (level)

Mix the maida and baking powder and keep aside. Beat the butter and sugar creamy in a bowl with a wooden spoon (I used the beater). Drop the maida mix in it and loosen the batter slightly using some of the measured one cup milk. Add the lemon juice and rind and some milk. The mix curdles. Beat the egg yolk slightly and add into the curdled mix along with the remaining milk. Beat the egg white stiff and fold in gently and evenly on top.

Take ample amount of hot water in a wide oven dish and keep the bowl with the dessert mix in it. Bake at 160-170 C for 45 mins. You get a brown crust and a soft and mushy inner layer.

I had to rub in some more citrus flavours….ever since the orange season was in I’ve been over zealously and funnily adding it to all the cake batters and pudding mixes then. So I used 11/2 tbsp lemon juice and added 2 tbsp orange juice and I tbsp blueberry syrup too. I wanted to be loud about the blueberries so I topped my photo slice with a generous dollop of blueberry!

As much as I hate the commitment of declaring a favorite, I will have to go out on a limb ans say that my favorite flavors in dessert are citrus. This looks lovely...

Yes, Lora is my daughter. We don't have the same followers, and did not want to make a big issue out of it. Not that many people know, and didn't want to advertise it!

Elisabeth said...

Hi Thoma-I'm back again. So sweet of you to care, and thank you!

I'm so miserable about my sprained ankle, it happened just as I was picking up my granddaughter from elementary school, exactly 1 week ago. I've been helping Lora out a lot since her surgery. Her m-in-law is also here from Italy, as well. Lora is doing much better now, and recuperating well:DDD
