  • 40z (100g) Castor sugar
  • Finely grated rind of 1 lemon
  • 2 Eggs
  • About 1-2 tablespoons milk

  • 2 level tablespoons cornflour

  • Juice of 1 lemon


    1. Heat the oven to 375F (190C) or Gas 4.

    3. Sift the flour and salt on a plate, then cream the butter or margarine, sugar and grated lemon rind into a mixing bowl until it is soft and light. Crack the eggs and place the eggs into a separate bowl and beat them with a fork. Next, cream them into the mixture but before you place the last bit of the egg into the mixing bowl sift a little flour in.
    4. Then fold the remaining flour into the mixture and add the milk.
    5. Spoon the mixture into the baking dish or the pie dish evenually, then set aside while making the sauce.

    7. Finally, you pour the lemon sauce over the cake mixture and place the pre-heated oven for 40 minutes.

Delicious, easy to make. What more can you want from a sticky lemon pudding on a cold winters evening?

Delicious! Very easy to make, was very tasty! Make sure you have a deep enough tin though. Some of the liquid bubbled over in mine thus losing out on some of the sauce
