LEMON CAKE PUDDING

One of my favorite desserts from childhood. The texture of this dessert is what interested us as kids (and still does) - cake on top and a lemon pudding, almost a ‘sauce’, on the bottom. How the cake/sauce separation happens is a mystery to me because when you mix it all up and pour it in the baking dish, everything looks like a thick lemon soup. This would be a nice treat for company - light and lemony, plus it looks like a lot of work, but it’s really not.

Sift together into a mixing bowl:

1/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt

Stir in:

1-1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind (1 lemon)
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 eggs yolks, well beaten
1 cup milk

Fold in:

2 egg whites, stiffly beaten

Pour into a 1 quart casserole (6-1/2 “) or 6 custard cups.
Set in pan of water (1” deep).
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes.
Serve warm or cold (refreshing in warm weather), with or without whipped cream.

Serves 6

Cooking notes:

* We have always used an old Corningware 1-3/4 qt. baking dish & the LCP fills it up - I can’t imagine using something smaller.

* The LCP comes out of the oven with the cake top puffed up and looking great ..... and then it falls. This is disappointing, but perfectly normal.

* Variations on this recipe (substitutes for the lemon):

-Lime juice/rind
-Orange juice/rind
-Pineapple - follow recipe exactly except use 1/2 cup milk, only 1 tbsp. lemon juice, and add 1/4 cup drained crushed pineapple and 1/4 cup pineapple juice.

That looks really good. Appreciate the variations as well.

I’ll take a guess and say that the whites folded in make the cake part light and the egg yolks being heavy cause the lemon to sink, and that this is how the layers develop.

Now, the corning ware. I have a 3 piece set. Probably the typical set. I think the largest and the mid sized ones probably hold the same, its just that one is deeper, and the other is larger but more shallow. How deep is the one you use?

It is 3 inches deep - I would have guessed more, but actually measured & that’s what it comes out to.

Thanks. Would you guess about 8 in square?

It is 7 inches square at the top & about 5-1/2 at the bottom. It’s a 1-3/4 qt. pot.

Yes, I’m going to shift this to a Monthly (I should have gave a heads up before)

Getting a new one up tomorrow for July

Post recipe here or on tomorrow’s thread - it will get recorded for the online cookbook for 2012

(Love to see that Ham Balls recipe - I have one too-from a chef on the NASCAR Cup circuit that cooks for many of the drivers-—around here somewhere....:>)
