Lemon Pudding With Blackberry Coulis

  • Yield: 8 servings


  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 4 tablespoon (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted (1/4 cup)
  • 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 2 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup Blackberry Coulis
  • 1 cup heavy cream, whipped with 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 2 teaspoon sugar
  • Confectionersí sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Lightly butter a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl combine the flour and 1 1/2 cups of the sugar, and mix well. Add the melted butter, lemon juice, lemon zest, and the 3 beaten egg yolks. Stir in the buttermilk.
  • Beat the 3 egg whites with the remaining 1/4 cup sugar until stiff, and gently fold into the first mixture. Pour into the loaf pan, place the pan in a water bath (a larger baking dish with about an inch of hot water), and bake until brown on top and puffed above the rim of the loaf pan, for about 1 hour.
  • About 10 minutes before the pudding is finished baking, prepare the Blackberry Coulis.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature. To serve, spoon the pudding onto plates, add 2 tablespoons Blackberry Coulis around the pudding, and top with whipped cream and confectioners’ sugar.
