Why Am I in Love With This Lemon Pudding Recipe?
This lemon pudding is incredibly simple to make, and no one will ever discover that it took you only few minutes to prepare it!
The thick cream, which is reduced slightly and blended with sour lemon juice, makes it absolutely magical. The two are combined to create a luxurious creamy texture.
And the best part is that there’s no need to bake the Lemon Pudding. Keep your oven off, and simply place it in the refrigerator to cool before serving.
Rarely do I indulge in more than a few pieces of dessert — maintaining your weight may be impossible when you work as a chef — but this Lemon Pudding is an exception! It is delicate, fluffy, and completely guilt-free.
You can also use this recipe as a lemon pie filling because it does not require any further baking.
Lemon Pudding’s History
The recipe is inspired by a medieval drink known as a Posset, which was famous from the Medieval Era till the early nineteenth century. The drink was basically thickened hot milk, or cream with acidic wine or cider. According to British Food History, it was thought to be therapeutic for healing a common cold.
How to Serve Your Lemon Pudding
In this recipe, the pudding is spooned into individual serving bowls. If you’re serving a smaller group, go through your cupboard for nice stemmed glasses to make it look fancier! One larger serving bowl will suffice if you’re bringing it to a party. Each visitor can scoop out their own portion, then top it with whipped cream, fruit, or eat it plain.
Frequently Asked Questions
I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it. Low-fat cream or milk doesn’t have enough fat to react with the acid to make the curd that thickens this dessert.
The sugar in this treat serves a dual purpose. It guarantees a smooth curd and a nice silky texture in the dessert. It’s also meant to counteract the sourness of the lemon. My recommendation is to test it once as written. If you find it overly sweet, reduce the sugar by a tablespoon or so the next time you make it until you hit your own sweet spot.
Definitely! Using the same method, and in the same proportions, using orange or grapefruit would suffice.
If you ask me, the Nilla wafers get better the longer they sit. I usually prepare this recipe a nigh ahead.
