Recipe By : Marcy Kaminski

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 cup sugar -- divided
4 large egg yolks
1/3 cup fresh Meyer lemon juice
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsalted butter -- (1/2 stick) melted
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 large egg whites
Whipping cream
Assorted fresh berries


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Butter 8x8x2-inch glass baking dish.

Blend buttermilk, 1/2 cup sugar, egg yolks, lemon juice, flour, butter, and salt in blender until smooth.

Transfer buttermilk mixture to medium bowl.

Using electric mixer, beat egg whites in large bowl until soft peaks form.

Gradually add remaining 1/2 cup sugar and beat until stiff but not dry.

Gently fold buttermilk mixture into whites in 3 additions (batter will be runny).

Spoon pudding cake out into shallow bowls.

Pour cream around cake.

Top with berries.

Thanks Lucas! Sounds like a gorgeous presentation. I never remember to take pictures. I get so busy and then the moment's gone, lol! Glad you enjoyed it. :)

Wanted you to know I'd made this just the way you have it-it was delicious. I infused more lemon by soaking the strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries in 1/4 cup along with several dashes of lavendar water-I added some eatable pansies-darn, should have taken pictures now I know how to do that (and post them). Next time. Just thought you'd like to know I had to fend off several people who wanted the last bite. Lovely pudding cake and my hats off to you. lucas hess

Lucas - that's an excellent idea! I would just reduce the buttermilk a bit. I'm so jealous about your trees. I have 2 dwarfs under lights until I put them out in the Summer and they have the most fragrant flowers on them now!

With a Meyer's tree right outside my front door this is terrific timing. Can one add more lemon juice than a third cup? Perhaps reducing the buttermilk by a like amount to keep liquids in scale? Or simply adding some Devonshire double cream to add bulk? lucas hess
