Lemon Pudding Cakes

My sister and I have been in a baking mood. I think it is all the gloomy, rainy, cold weather we've had. We needed some comfort food! The King Arthur Flour catalog had just come and this is one of the recipes they featured, Lemon Pudding Cake.

The recipe can be found at:

Contrary to what the name might imply, these little cakes do not have pudding in them. You actually make a cake batter, then pour a "sauce" over it before it bakes. When it is done the cake is on top and a pudding has formed on the bottom.

We did change the recipe a bit, as we didn't have lemon powder or lemon bits. Instead we put lemon zest(peel) and lemon juice(2 tbls) in the cake batter and 3 tbls of lemon juice in the sauce.

So Yummy! And very English. I have an English cookbook and there is a whole chapter on "puddings". Did you know pudding is slang for dessert in England?

Aren't they cute? In vintage Fire King custard cups.


  1. Love the custard cups, and I wish you lived closer so you could share the lemon pudding cakes. :-) They look so cute and delicious!

  2. Oh my! These are so cute! Love it! You two girls are amazing!

  3. Those old blue and white plates look so striking in pictures. I am glad you posted the recipe link too,I might have to try those.
