This is actually more of a pudding cake, where the batter separates out during cooking into a top spongy layer and a bottom, sauce-pudding layer. It is extremely good with the following changes: 1/4 cup flour instead of 3 1/2 Tablespoons 1 tablespoon butter instead of 2 1 cup of milk instead of 2/3 cup zest and juice of one lemon (or a juicy lime) bake in a 1&1/2 quart dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray, and placed in a Bain-marie (water-bath).


I used the juice & zest of one lemon but otherwise followed the recipe. I topped the pudding w/ raw sugar before baking to get a caramelized coat of sugar on the top. I garnished w/ lemon zest & another sprinkling of raw sugar after baking. We loved this dessert & will have it over & over! I baked it in a 1 1/2 quart souffle dish & served it in parfait glasses but next time I will decrease the cooking time & bake it in individual ramekins. I'm eager to try this w/ limes too. And oranges. Thanks for sharing the recipe Chessette!


Love this! I didn't alter the recipe at all and it was fabulous! Reminiscent of lemon bars and lemon merengue pie. This seperates into two wonderful layers, cake on top, pudding on the bottom. My new comfort food! Thanks for sharing this one.
