What Do Quilters Do Best…

..besides quilt that is?…Why it’s EATING of course!!  And believe me, I’m no exception!  I love food especially desserts!  And seeing that no quilting has been happening around here I thought I would share last night’s dessert…

It’s called Lemon Pudding but it isn’t exactly pudding because there is a sponge cake topping that just magically happens on top.  Now it doesn’t look like much~


…but man is it good!  If you like lemon pie then you are going to LOVE this!  Do you see the layers?  The top is a light sponge cake soufflé topping and the bottom is a creamy pudding…and very lemony..

Here’s the recipe~

Lemon Pudding

2 tbsp butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs, separated
juice of 1 lemon
grated rind on 1/2 lemon
1 Cup milk
2 tbsp. flour

Cream butter and sugar.
Beat in egg YOLKS, flour, lemon juice and rind.  Add milk and then fold in stiffly beaten egg whites.  Pour into a small casserole dish.  Set this dish in a pan of water and bake at 350F until set.

It’s fast and easy…and you have all the ingredients in your cupboard…and you might just have a lemon tree in the backyard!  The hard part is putting the casserole dish into another dish with water in it to bake…but really how hard is that!

P1150111      Throw some berries on top…and enjoy!



ON The QUILTING BAKE FRONT~  I may not have done much sewing lately but that doesn’t mean that others haven’t …check out this creation by Kelbysews!!  What a great way to use up all those leftover scraps!  Wouldn’t this make a cute runner or table topper to put on the table beside the quilt you just finished!  Love it…and you can download the pattern for FREE over at Moda Bake Shop!  They are always baking up something terrific!!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P


  1. That looks really good and now I am hungry, lol.
    I can't eat sweets, but I make some things that don't need sugar, think lemon needs sugar for that type of recipe.


  2. I guessed eat before I even saw the picture. Guess I win!

  3. Wow.....that looks good. I'm having a bunch of quilting friends for the weekend in October so I think I am going to try that dessert.
    Let Debbie know that if she can eat splenda she can try it instead of sugar it works well.

  4. This is something completely new to me. I am definitely going to try it. Thanks for sharing :)

  5. I love this pudding. I used to make it a lot and then forgotten about it but I made a couple of months ago and I remembered how much I love it.

  6. I want to make that right now.But the 'bake until set' isn't definitive enough for this multitasker. I need a bit of a timeframe if I'm going to do a load of laundry, stitch down a binding, drive a kid to soccer practice and clean the bathroom while it's in the oven! Can you give me a ball park?

  7. Hi Paulette, looks yummy.
    I'm having a giveaway! Won't you join in.

  8. that looks really sets up like that when you cook it? num

  9. I've just dribbled all over my keyboard! It looks yummy and a definite one to try.
