Oven recipe
This is a surprise pudding. You will find a lemony sauce beneath the sponge.
Preparation time:  30 minutes
Cooking time:       55 minutes
Servings:               4
60 gm butter
1 tbl granulated sweetener
2 eggs
1 lemon
50 gm self-raising flour
190 ml milk

  • Preheat the oven to 180oC.
  • Cream the butter and sweetener with a fork in a large mixing bowl.
  • Separate the eggs. Add the yolks to the large bowl and put the whites in a small bowl.
  • Grate the lemon rind with the second finest cutter on a grater and add it to the bowl. (Don’t grate the white pith as it tastes bitter.)
  • Squeeze out the lemon juice and add it to the large bowl.
  • Add the flour to the mixing bowl and mix it in.
  • Add the milk, stirring until the mixture becomes a smooth batter.
  • Whisk the egg whites stiffly with an electric whisk. Fold them into the mixture using a large kitchen spoon.
  • Line an ovenproof dish with greaseproof paper, and pour the mixture into it.
  • Stand the dish in a baking tray containing an inch (2.5 cm) of cold water.
  • Bake for 15 minutes at 180oC.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 150oC and continue to cook the pudding for another 40 minutes until it is firm and the top is just turning a golden brown colour.
  • Serve with a little fresh cream or squirty cream.

Tip: To use the pudding cold in a lunch box, do not use the tray of water.
