Lemon delicious pudding
Lemon delicious is a classic for a reason! As much as I love experimenting with new recipes, there’s just something about a good old-fashioned pud when I’m craving comfort food.
This recipe requires nothing fancy, just the basics. It’s perfect when you want to make a dessert in a snap with what’s in the cupboard and a lemon off the tree.
Master this recipe and you’ll have the perfect dessert up your sleeve for any occasion.
Serve it in all it’s light, fluffy glory dusted in a flurry of icing sugar. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy. Heaven!
This recipe is from the August/September issue of NADIA magazine.
