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
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
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).
