Nostalgia in the kitchen

At the bottom of my blog I have recipes pop up from and one that just popped up now is Lemon Delicious. I haven't had that since I was a kid - I'm pretty sure it was a 70's fad like Steak Diane and Bombe Alaska (which incidentally I had for many-a-birthday-cake as I'm not a real cake fan)..

Recipe for Lemon Delicious Pudding:
60 g butter
3/4 cup castor sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup self-raising flour
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
2 eggs, separated
1 cup milk

Beat softened butter and sugar until it is well mixed and then stir in sifted flour, lemon rind and juice. Combine the 2 egg yolks with the milk, then gradually add to the mixture, beating well as you go. Beat the egg whites until there are soft peaks, and fold into the mixture. Pour into a greased 4 cup oven-proof dish.

Bake in moderate oven for 35 minutes.
Might give it a go if I'm feeling more *rested* tomorrow.

Hi Liss,

Thank you so much for posting this Lemon Delicious recipe. I've been looking for one! Thought I'd also let you know about a competition I'm having on my site that might be fun for your little ones - giving away a stroller pad and blanket set.
Best wishes,

Interesting. I thought lemon delicious was something EVERYONE had and did make... I make it fairly regularly I guess you'd say. I discovered a few weeks ago though that it's not! Now you've confirmed it!
