Lemon Pudding

Today’s been a real duvet day.

Mooching around doing housework, getting the kids to do their homework, looking out at the garden and wishing it was a lovely sunny day.  But it’s not to be. It’s cold, windy and very grey.  A day to be indoors messing around in the kitchen I think.  After a quick check to see what I had in the fridge all I could rustle up were some fresh lemons so a lemon pudding it would have to be.

Lemon Pudding
There is nothing fancy about this lemon pudding but it is deliciously moist and tangy and very light.  I used to make it at school so it uses the most basic of ingredients and is very simple to make.  It is a pudding of two layers – the top being a very light sponge and the bottom is a thick custard/mousse like consistency.

Simple and delicious!
Lemon PuddingI serve mine warm with pouring cream (because everything tastes better with cream – right?) but it would be just as good with ice cream or even just on its own.
