Things needed:

Here are the things you’ll need to whip up a tasty cake:


An Invigorating Citrus Dessert Perfect for Any Occasion

1/2 cup all-purpose flour*

125 milliliters of granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/4 cup melted unsalted butter

Two enormous, unrelated eggs

half a cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/2 tablespoon of zest from a lemon

1.5 cups of milk

Sugar, powdered (optional), for dusting

Optional garnish: fresh berries

Optional: whipped cream for garnishing


Heat the oven to preheat: Make sure your oven is preheated at 350°F (175°C). Prepare a 9×9-inch baking dish or separate ramekins with cooking spray.

To make the dry ingredients, put the flour, salt, and 1 cup of granulated sugar in a bowl and stir until smooth.

Melt the butter in a separate bowl. In a second bowl, mix together the egg yolks, milk, lemon juice, and zest until creamy.

Blend Wet and Dry components: Whisk in the wet components slowly until the dry ingredients are fully incorporated and a thick mixture forms.

Separate the egg whites and beat them in a separate clean dish until soft peaks emerge. While beating, gradually add the remaining half cup of granulated sugar. Beat until firm peaks are formed.

Just blend the batter with the beaten egg whites by gently folding them in. The egg whites will lose their elasticity and the cake’s texture if you overmix the batter.

After you have your baking dish or ramekins ready, pour in the batter and bake. A water bath may be made by placing the dish or ramekins in a bigger baking pan and then filling the pan with boiling water. The pudding cake will bake more uniformly and keep its moist texture if you do this.

Place the lemon pudding cake in a preheated oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the top becomes golden and the cake is firm but somewhat wobbly in the middle.

After taking the pudding cake out of the oven, let it cool for a little before cutting and serving. Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream as a garnish and dust with powdered sugar if preferred. You can also add fresh berries.

Success Hints:

Using fresh lemon juice and zest will result in the most flavorful dish. If you want your lemon juice to taste as bright and fresh as the day you squeezed it, use fresh juice from the bottle.

Let the eggs sit at room temperature for a few minutes before adding them to the mixture. To get a lighter texture and more even mixing, let the eggs come to room temperature before adding them to the batter.

To make a pudding cake that is both soft and moist, a water bath is necessary. Pour enough water into the baking dish or individual ramekins so the mixture will rise to the top, ensuring uniform baking.

Gentle Hands: Be careful not to overmix the beaten egg whites while folding them in. The egg whites might lose their elasticity and become more solid if you beat them too vigorously.

While the original lemon pudding cake is tasty, there are several ways to alter the recipe to suit your taste:

For a blast of juicy sweetness with every bite, try this Lemon Blueberry Pudding Cake: Before baking, fold in fresh blueberries to the mixture.

For a tropical take on the traditional lemon pudding cake, try adding shredded coconut to the mixture.

For a visually appealing and tangy contrast to the sweet lemon filling, layer raspberries on top of the batter before baking. This cake is called a lemon raspberry pudding.

A classic treat, this cake embodies the essence of fresh, zesty tastes with every mouthful. No celebration is complete without this delicacy, thanks to its easy preparation and delicious flavor. This delicious dessert is perfect for any occasion, whether you’re entertaining guests or just want something sweet. Obtain all of the necessary materials, set your oven to preheating, and prepare yourself for a delightful slice of lemony bliss!
