View Full Version : Lemon Sponge Pudding

30-Mar-07, 19:49
Years ago I had a really good recipe for a lemon pudding... once in the oven the pud magically separated itself out into sponge and a delicious lemony sauce....yum!:D

Unfortunately I've lost the recipe, but I'd really like to try making the pud again -does anybody have a reliable recipe for this or something like it? :confused

Here goes:

2 oz soft marg
2 oz self raising flour
6 oz sugar
2 eggs - separated
1 large lemon
10 fl oz milk

oven: 170

Beat together marg, sugar, rind and juice. Beat in egg yolks, then flour and milk gradually. Whisk egg whites and add.Put into a dish and set in a tray of water. Put in oven and bake for approx 40 minutes.

Hope this is what you're looking for. Also have a recipe for a Chocolate version!! :lol:

Buttercup, thank you so much, that looks just right!:D

Would you mind posting the chocolate version as well ? (I know that's greedy isn't it?) I'd love to have it.

You can pm me if you'd rather, but I'm sure other people would like to have it as well. ;)
