True to form with me and making desserts, if it isn't easy it doesn't get made!

I am not ashamed to admit that I have no patience when it comes to making desserts and really do embrace a "bung it all in" attitude, sometimes it works, other times....not-so-much!
This is a great dessert for non-pudding eaters as it's not too sweet and you don't have to eat large amounts of it to enjoy it.

This dessert is awesome; It's simple and it's really tasty.
If you've ever been to France and had Tarte au Citron you'll remember the filling as zesty but creamy and with a thick, smooth, creamy texture.
This dessert is Tarte au Citron without the pastry!

I'm not sure whether I prefer this Delicious Lemon Pudding hot or cold - either way is is great.
You can enhance it with fresh fruit but my preference is either a fresh berry coulis or a zesty sweetish lemon sauce.
A little poured over the top balances out the creaminess and brings a new dimension to the dessert.

I made this dessert in larger dishes but also in smaller pots that I could use as part of a dessert trio.
They were an incredible addition but remember, if you are going to use smaller dishes adjust the cooking time so you don't over cook it.

When cooked they should be soft at the bottom and firmer at the top.....yummy!

A small bottle of dessert wine goes a long way but if you're looking for a special something to try with Delicious Lemon Pudding try this Australan Orange Muscat
