Hot Citrus Pudding

This delightful hot pudding full of fresh citrus flavours is very light and fluffy and has the advantage of emerging from the oven in a pool of its own sauce. Then all it needs is some chilled pouring cream.

This recipe is from Delia's Winter Collection

Method

First take a large bowl and in it whisk the butter and sugar together until pale in colour – it won’t go light and fluffy, but don’t worry, it’s because there is more sugar than butter. After that beat the egg yolks and whisk them into the mixture a little at a time. Next sift the flour and lightly fold it into the mixture, alternating it with the combined citrus juices, zests and lastly the milk.

Now in a clean bowl and using a washed and dried spanking-clean whisk, whisk the egg whites to the soft-peak stage and lightly fold those into the mixture. Don’t worry that it might look a little curdled at this stage – it’s supposed to. Now pour the mixture into the prepared dish and bake it on the middle shelf of the pre-heated oven for 50 minutes, by which time the top should be a nice golden brown colour.

Although this pudding is served hot, it is just as nice cold. Mind you, I doubt if there will be any left over.

Lancaster Lemon Tart Serves 4-6

Lancaster Lemon Tart

This is a first cousin of a Bakewell tart, using home-made lemon curd instead of jam, which I think goes very well with the flavour of almonds.
