Lemon Delicious


This Lemon Delicious Pudding takes me back to my childhood. I can remember on special occasions my grandmother (father's mother) would make it. My grandmother was an amazing gardener & would grow most of the food she ate - even in to her 90's. Upon marrying my mother my father requested that mum learn to cook a Lemon Delicious Pudding like his mother ;). I'm not sure if there was any rivalry between mother & daughter-in-law. I should add that my mum's mum didn't cook at all. My mother's cooking skills increased dramatically when she married my father (he could cook). So I grew up having this pudding made by my mother & grandmother. This is a conversion of that wonderful Lemon Delicious Pudding.

This recipe was designed specifically to be made with Bakers' Magic gluten free flour. The finished baked product will not be the same if you use another gluten free flour and you will need to adjust the recipe, particularly if the flour you're using contains rice flour. 


Serves 8 (my son thinks it serves 1)

50 g Bakers' Magic Gluten free flour

225 g Caster sugar

3 Eggs (separated)

250 g Milk (room temperature)

110 g Lemon juice (~2 Lemons)

50 g Butter (softened)


During baking the pudding separates into two layers.


Turn oven on to 150 C.

Grease an oven proof pudding dish. 

Put warm water into a baking dish & put this into the oven. Make sure it is large enough to hold the pudding dish.

Using a stand mixer or hand held electric beaters cream 150 g of the sugar with the butter & egg yolks.

Mix in the Bakers' Magic Gluten free flour.

Add the milk & then the lemon juice. Mix until it is uniform.

Beat the egg whites with 75 g of the caster sugar until stiff peaks form.

Fold the egg whites into the egg yolk/sugar/lemon mix.

Gently pour the mix into the the pudding dish.

Place pudding dish into the baking dish & bake for ~45-50 mins. The time required to bake this pudding will depend on your oven, how hot the water was in the baking dish & how much water is in the dish. The pudding is cooked too long if the top of the pudding comes away from the sides of the dish.

Optional - dust with icing sugar prior to serving. 

Serve hot with cream and/or ice-cream.

Simply enjoy!
