As regular readers of my blog know, I serve a dinner every Sunday and invite the "bachelors" to join me and Grant. Apart from roast meat, rice, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding (more about these later) and three veg, I also serve dessert for afters. Over the past nine months, I've been through every single pudding I can think of and a few new ones, which I've posted on my blog. The favourite of all time favourites, is my Lemon Meringue Pie which is TDF!*
Last week I found another delicious lemon dessert recipe and tried it out on the men. The verdict: "Yummy"
But don't take my word for it, try it for yourself.
BTW Passion fruits are freely and cheaply available at our local market and my lemon tree bears all year round, so I used these in the recipe.
Surprise Passion Fruit and Lime Pudding
Surprise Passion Fruit and Lemon/Lime Pudding
6 Passion Fruits
225g Caster Sugar
100g butter, softened - keep a little for greasing
2 tsp finely grated lemon zest
Juice of 2 lemons
(keep zest and juice seperate)
4 eggs seperated
Icing sugar for dusting (I forgot!)
Heat oven to 180 ◦ C
Butter ovenproof dish and stand in roasting tin
Half passion fruits, scoop pulp into saucepan
Stir in 1tbs caster sugar and gently heat through without boiling
Press juice throug a sieve and discard the pips
Cream butter and caster sugar and lime zest.
Beat in egg yolks one at a time, alternate with a splash of milk, and flour, followed by passion fruit and lemon juice
Don't panic if the mixture curdles - it won't spoil the final product
Whisk egg whites until they form stiff peaks.
Fold into batter
Pour into the baking dish.
Pour enough water in roasting pan to reach half-way up baking dish.
Bake for 40-45 min until golden brown
Dust with icing sugar and serve with cream or ice-cream
The surprise comes when the spoon sinks into the baked pudding and reveals a layer of custard hidden under the spongy top!
Note from top * TDF = To die for!
