Lemon pudding cake - need recipe

Susan627 Jul 14, 2010 05:35 PM

I'm looking for a recipe that I tore out of a magazine a while ago but can't now find. The cake creates a "pudding" like sauce but it was not made with separated eggs. Most recipes call for beating the egg whites separatly, then adding to the other ingredients. And this one had the boiling water poured on top just prior to baking, as most of the chocolate pudding cake recipes do. I found one recipe @ King Arthur Flour but it did not have a positive review. Does anyone know of a recipe? Thanks!

    This is the one from Joy of Cooking. The Internet is amazing.

      The recipe forgot to tell you to fold the beaten egg whites into the batter.

      Although I don't know of one with whole eggs and boiling water, I can recommend one of the separated egg variety. The following one from Gourmet is dead simple, and with fragrant fresh lemons, it can be intensely lemony. (I'm puzzled that many reviewers complain that it's not lemony enough- it must really depend on what lemons you use)

        AA, that's my go-to for a luscious lemon dessert, too! We love it with some kind of berry or macerated berries over top...that's a great lemon recipe!
