The first thing you need to do is to prepare ramekins. Then grease them with butter, follow by placing them in a large casserole dish. Just like crème Brulee, you will need to bake them in a water bath. A water bath provides a moist and humid environment for your lemon pudding cakes, which is responsible for its soft and smooth texture. It is not advisable to use dry heat, as it will cause rubbery tasting cakes.
The next thing you need to do is to combine your egg yolks, milk, butter, vanilla extract, juice, and lemon zest together. Then whisk your flour, salt, and sugar. At this stage, you will need to beat the egg whites until you notice a soft foamy peak. Add more sugar, and continue beating until stiff foam forms. You deserve to know that this airy and voluminous mixture is the secret of the fluffy lemon that you will notice on top of it. Then with care, fold everything together and divide them between your ramekins. Add water to your water bath and ensure no water splashes into the ramekins. Follow that by pouring hot water into the casserole dish that is around the ramekins. What you need to do next is to bake until you notice the lemon cakes are lightly browned on top and puff. At this point, you need to be careful of baking duration. Overbaking will cause pudding on the bottom of the cake to cook, that’s why you need to be conscious of your baking time. Usually, baking time should take around 30-35 minutes.
Once you are done with the baking stage, you will need to cool the cake outside of the water bath, and hit the spot with a dusting of confectioners’ sugars.
Follow all the procedures, and your lemon pudding cake will be ready before you know it. Be prepared to dig in your spoon.
Note: For effective baking, start checking your cake after 30 minutes. The edge will be set, the top will be puffy, and light-browned. Also, the bottom will surely be pudding once it is correctly done. Enjoy yourself with it.
