Skinny Lemon Pudding

I love Lemon Desserts .....And this lemon dessert is by far my most favorite ....its requested by all my friends everytime they come over and its all gone in a matter of seconds!

lemon pudding low calorie

And well the best part.....its a Skinny dessert!!! Yes it is!!!

No butter

No cream

Just a little sugar ......and the result is this elegant looking beauty !

I like to call it a spudding ...well because its a mix between a souffle and a lemon rises beautifully just like a souffle and the bottom is a moist saucy lemon pudding !

Ahh.... arent they beautiful? And so easy to make ! :)

Low Calorie Lemon souffle / Lemon Pudding


2 eggs
3-4 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons regular granulated sugar
1/2 cup flour
 1/2 to 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
150 ml milk
 Salt 1 pinch


1. Separate 2 eggs into whites and yellows. Keep egg whites aside for later use.

2. Whisk egg yolks , add lemon juice , lemon zest and sugar. Combine well with a hand whisk.

3. Add flour , fold it in till well combined then add vanilla essence.

4. Add milk and mix everything together. Keep this egg yolk mix aside.

5. In a clean container start beating the egg whites and a pinch of salt with an electric beater till stiff peaks form , this will take about 8 minutes at the highest speed.

6.Now gently fold in the stiff egg whites into the egg yolk mix from step 4. Do this in 3-4 batches , not all in once!

7. Pour ready mixture into lightly buttered ramekin bowls. Place ramekin bowls into oven proof dish.

8. Create a water bath by pouring hot water upto half way of the ramekin tins. Place into preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 20-30 minutes (depending on your oven) until pudding is well risen and brown on top.
