Recipe: Lemon-Souffle Pudding Cake

4 stars

I'm not a huge lemon dessert fan, but we had buttermilk in the house from another recipe, and this looked easy.  It WAS easy to make and a lovely dish.  It turned out exactly as the recipe description:  Cakey on top, pudding-y on the bottom, tart all the way through.

Ingredients:  butter, sugar, buttermilk, creme fraiche or sour cream, lemon zest, lemon juice, 3 large eggs, all-purpose flour, Kosher salt, powdered sugar, fresh blackberries (for serving; optional)

  • Batter was extremely loose as the recipe mentions.
  • It was wonderful with homemade vanilla ice cream.  The cream helps cut through the tartness.
  • The photo above doesn't show it with powdered sugar on top or the blackberries.  I think this could be a beautiful, elegant dessert to serve to guests and am wondering if this recipe would work in small individual ramekins.  Will report back.
