  •  Zest of 1 lemon (or as little/as much as you like)
  • 150g butter
  • 50g lemon juice
  • 160g caster sugar
  • 120g self raising flour
  • 170g milk
  • 4 eggs separated – Room Temperature for best results

 Preheat oven to 160deg.   Spray a baking dish (1.5lt)

 

Making sure your bowl is spotlessly clean, insert your butterfly whisk into the jug and add 4 egg whites.  Whisk on Speed 3.5 until soft peaks form (approx. 1 minute).  Place in a separate bowl.

Add zest of a lemon to a clean/dry bowl and blitz on Speed 8 until finely chopped.  Add butter and melt for 3 minutes at 60deg Speed 2.

Add lemon juice, sugar, flour, milk and yolks and combine on Speed 4 for 10 seconds.

Add half of the egg whites and use your Knead Function to fold into the batter for 7 seconds.  Add remaining egg whites and use your spatula to fold through.

Place your baking dish in a tray with hot water half way up the sides.  Pour your batter into the baking dish and bake for approx. 35 minutes.

Wash your bowl then do a vinegar wash – 50g vinegar, 500g water and cook for 10-12 minutes at Speed 3 100 deg with the butterfly inserted.  Rinse and dry the bowl.

To make the Meringue

With the butterfly inserted, add 3 egg whites into the bowl and whisk on Speed 3.5 until soft peaks form.  Slowly add 100g caster sugar (1 tsp at a time) until it is glossy and the sugar is dissolved.

When pudding has been removed, top with the meringue then use a kitchen blow torch to brown the top (or carefully place under a grill)

Serve with cream.
