When you ask the average person what their favourite flavour is for desserts, you usually get chocolate, vanilla, caramel or strawberry. I have to be different.. mine is lemon. Lemon everything! But it's hard to find a good lemon dessert out there because they usually use stimulated lemon flavouring instead of real lemons. And let's face it, the flavour of real lemons cannot be beat by artificial lemon flavouring. So I usually get pretty disappointed by the lemon ice-cream and cheesecakes.
I once had a (fairly intelligent) friend tell me that lemons are not fruits. They are condiments. Boy was I mistaken all these years...
In case some of you have been following my previous posts, I have NOT fallen off my wagon for my clean eating lifestyle. It's all about moderation. So we allow ourselves 2 cheat days a week. And I took full advantage of mine. J was away on business so I was able to make a dessert that is all about ME!!!!
This lemon pudding cake has a creamy lemon custard (similar to lemon curd) at the bottom, and a light airy souffle-like cake topping. It screams sweet and tart, just the way real lemons should.
It's a bit of hassle for the amount that you get. In fact, when I pulled them out of the oven, I thought, "pfft...2 servings? I'm eating both of them!!". But in the end, I could only handle one.. I know.. how disappointing?!?!?!
So if you have a love for lemons like I do, check out the recipe:
