Lemon Pudding Cake Recipe

This hot lemon pudding cake recipe is perfect for a chilly fall or winter evening when you want something to warm you up. The cakes are made with a lemon cake mix, as well as fresh lemon juice, eggs and blueberry jam. You can swirl the jam on the top of the cakes just before you bake it. This adds flavor and color. Use fresh blueberries, if you can get them, as the garnish. Failing that, you can use thawed or canned ones but they will not be as firm.

Maybe you have made a recipe for lemon pudding cake or a lemon instant pudding and cake recipe before or perhaps this will be your first one. Whatever the case, you are sure to enjoy the flavor of this one. If you have made a gelatin poke cake recipe before, you will know about poking holes in a cake and pouring gelatin over it to set. In this recipe the holes are to allow the lemon juice and powdered sugar mixture to infuse right into the hot cake. This adds sweetness and flavor, as well as moisture. It also means you will get a sauce forming underneath the cake, which adds to the appeal of this wonderful lemon and blueberry cake recipe.

As you can imagine, this is a great-smelling recipe and while it is baking your kitchen will smell magnificent. If you have kids, you can expect them to wander curiously into the kitchen looking hopeful when the tangy lemon scent reaches their noses! This is not just a recipe for kids though; adults will also enjoy the sophisticated citrus tang, the contrast of blueberries, and the wonderful texture of this sweet and satisfying comfort food lemon cake recipe.

Photo Description:

This lemon pudding cake recipe can be made in ramekins, as you can see in the photo, or you could use a large bowl instead and cut the cake into individual servings afterwards. If you have ramekins, it is probably easier just to use those. This gelatin dessert recipe uses gelatin as a flavoring rather than for texture. Gelatin is not something that needs to be baked but the cake is, so the gelatin powder gives the cake extra lemon taste. The lemon juice does the same, except you must combine it with powdered sugar first to take the bitter edge away. This is a light and fluffy gelatin dessert, which is wonderful, served hot from the oven.
