Citrus delicious pudding

Citrus delicious pudding / Sobremesa cítrica deliciosa

I have a new obsession: delicious and put-together-in-a-minute desserts that get transformed while the oven – two different textures in only one dish.
It all started with Bill’s banana pudding and last weekend I tried Donna Hay’s citrus pudding: half of it becomes sort of a sponge cake, and the other half is similar to silky baked custard. So, so good.

Something tells me I’m gonna love Nigella’s hotcake – and I won’t be waiting for the holidays to make it. :D

Citrus delicious pudding / Sobremesa cítrica deliciosa

Citrus delicious pudding
from Donna Hay magazine

6 ½ tablespoons (91g) unsalted butter, softened
2 ½ cups + 2 ½ tablespoons (330g) caster sugar
1 ½ cups + 1 tablespoon (375ml) milk
3 eggs
¼ cup (60ml) lemon juice
¼ cup (60ml) lime juice
½ cup (70g) all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
finely grated zest of 1 large orange
icing sugar, for dusting

Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF.
Place the butter, sugar, milk, eggs, lemon and lime juices, flour, baking powder and orange zest in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth - I tried mixing the batter in my Kitchen Aid but it didn’t work well (the butter didn’t get mixed at all). So I switched to an immersion blender.
Pour into a lightly greased 5-cup (1.2 liters) ovenproof dish and bake for 1 hour or until golden.
Dust with icing sugar to serve (I forgot).

Serves 6

Lucy said...

Ahh this citrus delight looks delicious! I've tasted many good versions of these sort of puddings, but have yet to make them myself. I don't know why when they turn out so good like this :)

Never quite a fan of banana pudding but this citrus one is very tempting! I will give this a try soon!

Cynthia said...

I am so going to give this a try!

You know there are so many things you make with a citrus combo that I love!

I have never made a lemon delicious pudding. Is that bad????

gine said...

Parita said...

This citrus delight looks wonderful!

Manggy said...

Hmm, as I only have a regular blender which is quite a pain to clean, I would've mixed it the classic cake way: butter, zest and sugar, eggs one at a time, then stir together the flour+BP and milk+juices, then add them alternately into the butter :) You did a great job with them. I want a bowlful now! :)

These are so delicious. I've made them with many different flavours and loved them every time. Thanks for sharing your recipe. This will be my next choice!

Hi, Lizzie! How great to see you here!
Thank you!

Lucy, they are so easy, I'm sure you'll love making them!

Maybelles Mom, tks for stopping by!

Venus ~ Vi, thank you for visiting! One just can't go wrong with citrus, don't you think? :D

Cynthia, you must! I'm a citrus freak, I know! :D

Fried Blue, tks for stopping by!

Julia, VERY bad, darling. :D
You have got to fix that. :D

Gine, I love lemons, too - I'm glad you like this pudding!
Tks, xoxo

Parita, thank you!

Mark, I have a regular blender, too, and agree with you about the cleaning thing - it sucks... :D
Your suggestion is fantastic, thank you, my friend!

Bill, thank you.

ChichaJo said...

I love these type of puddings. Citrus is great!

Elizabeth B said...

I just made this and it's really delicious. Are you sure about the temperature of 350ºF, though? It got awfully browned on top and was still somewhat liquid inside. (It's also possible that my oven thermostat isn't quite accurate, a sadly common situation in rental apartments.)

Thank you! :)

I really like the sound of the cakey top and the moist bottom on this one!

Patricia Scarpin said...

Hi Elizabeth! I'm so glad to know you made it! I'm sure about the temperature - I use an oven thermometer because my oven is not very accurate (can't trust the temperature shown in the button). I kept controlling it while the dessert was baking and 350 is correct.

Thank YOU for letting me know how it turned out!

I've always loved a citrus pudding and the textures of this one are just perfect. Thanks for sharing this

Rachael West said...

Citrus and pudding combined. Can never go wrong with this option.

Elizabeth B said...

Hi again. I have to laugh at myself because I did something so stupid. I've never made a baked pudding before and I forgot one important step: You have to CHILL it before you scoop out that first serving! *smacks forehead with palm* So silly! But after it spent some time in the fridge it was so, so delicious. So thank you again for a wonderful recipe.

Patricia Scarpin said...

Elizabeth, you made me laugh - I'm glad to know you figured the problem out. And thank you for letting me know about it! :D

Elizabeth B said...

You're welcome! You share all these wonderful recipes with the world and it seems nice to me to let you know about our failures and successes. :)
