Lovely lemon curdy pudding
This really easy lemon pudding is from Jamie Oliver and is perfect for family dinners.

55g butter
115g sugar (vanilla sugar is nice)
Grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
2 large eggs, separated
55g self-raising flour
285ml milk

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6. Cream the butter, sugar and lemon rind in a mixing bowl. Add the egg yolks and flour and beat in, then add the milk and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and mix well.

Whisk the egg whites in a separate bowl until stiff, then add the rest of the mixture. Mix it all well but don't over-mix it; you don't want the air to come out of the egg whites. Pour into a buttered ovenproof dish, stand the dish in a roasting tin about a third full of water, then bake in your preheated oven for about 45 minutes until the top is set and spongy and it's a nice golden colour.
