Lemon Pudding

Puddings, specially cold fruit puddings, were among the most common desserts in Anglo India. This particular lemon pudding is served warm but it's both simple and delicious, I think it would also work well as filling for lemon pie. The original recipe asks for freshly grated breadcrumbs, but I used the Panko Japanese Style breadcrumbs instead very successfully.

Lemon Pudding


  • 8 tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 6 eggs yolks.
  • 3 lemons, juiced
  • grated peel from 1 lemon
  • 4 tbsp. breadcrumbs


    Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a baking dish.

    Cream the butter and sugar together until white and fluffy. Mix in the egg yolks, 2 at a time. Gradually add the lemon juice, lemon peel and breadcrumbs, mix well. Pour the batter into the baking dish and bake for 20 minutes, until the top is lightly browned.
