One of my favorite comfort foods is simple lemon pudding.
I love the soft, smooth feel and bright lemon flavor. It is just perfect for nearly any moment comfort is needed or even for a fun celebration. Here is my easy method for making a tasty simple lemon pudding. If you are really in the mood for some fun think about using oranges or grapefruit instead! —
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1 ½ cups water
- 5 teaspoons cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 pinch kosher salt
- 3 large egg yolks
1. In a small saucepan bring the sugar and water to a boil and stir in the lemon juice and cornstarch.
2. Beat the egg yolks and stir a tiny bit of the sugar water into the egg yolks to temper them. Then, whisk the eggs into the cornstarch mixture until smooth. Pour this mixture into a plastic container and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or until set.
