Zesty Citrus Pudding Slices

Zesty Citrus Pudding Slices ~ Zesty Pudding with a light sauce at the bottom and soft cake on top #CitrusPudding #BakedPudding
Autumn has started here in South-Africa and the mornings and evenings are definitely chillier than a couple of weeks ago. We are now in that phase where we still want our Summer eats, but also a something warmer for dessert at night.

These Citrus Pudding slices are perfect - zesty, served slightly warm with a thin custard. The pudding forms a bit of sauce at the bottom, which soaks into the cake just enough to make it a delicious gooey bite from the bottom, with the soft, less moist cake top.

If you are looking for a quick dessert, which I would put between a pudding and a cake, then this recipe is for you.



3 Eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups Caster Sugar
1 1/2 cups Milk
1/2 cup Flour
1/2 t Baking Powder
1/2 cup Orange Juice
Grated Peel of 1 Lemon
2 TB Fresh Lemon Juice
3 TB Butter, melted


1.) Pre-Heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 20 x 20cm oven dish with cooking oil.
2.) Beat the Egg Yolks and the Caster Sugar until fluffy and light yellow - add half the Milk and beat until the Sugar has dissolved.
3.) Add the remaining Milk, the Flour and Baking Powder to the mixture - mix gently until combined.
4.) Add the Orange Juice, Lemon Peel and Juice, and the Butter - stir through well.
5.) Beat the Egg Whites until stiff peaks form - fold into the Pudding batter.
6.) Pour the mixture into the prepared oven dish - bake 35 minutes until the pudding forms a thin sponge crust on top.

Serve warm with thin custard. { Take care when removing the pudding from the oven dish as it is saucy at the bottom - an egg lifter works great! }


  1. I know exactly what you mean I've been baking now autumn is here and I even have a quilt back on the bed, man I love autumn. I have about 6 weeks until the new lemons are ripe from feb through April they're all green.

  2. Oh the perfect summer dessert and just in time! Citrus anything is yummy for me!

  3. Hello Linda,
    I'm visiting from Tip Me Tuesday! That looks like a great dessert. I will have to try it!

  4. I'm trying to taste this one in my mind as I'm reading. Love all the citrus - can't wait to try it! :) #TastyTuesdays

  5. I made it. It is very good.
    Perfect after a light supper.

  6. This looks delicious. In Canada we are just starting Spring, and I am most defiantly craving summer. This looks like it would fit the bill perfectly.
