Lemon Pudding Cake with Raspberry Coulis

A tart and tasty treat to finish off your party spread.



Pudding Cake Ingredients
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs, separated
1 cup 1-percent milk
1 large lemon, zested
5 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Raspberry Coulis Ingredients
1 (10-ounce) package frozen raspberries in syrup
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice, or to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together flour, salt and 1/2 cup sugar in a bowl. Whisk together yolks, milk, zest and juice and add to dry ingredients, whisking until well combined. Beat whites in a large bowl with an electric mixer until they hold soft peaks, then gradually add remaining 1/4 cup sugar, beating, and continue to beat until whites hold stiff, glossy peaks. Whisk about one-fourth of whites into batter to lighten, then fold in remaining whites gently but thoroughly (batter will be thin). Pour batter into a lightly oiled 1 1/2-quart gratin or other shallow baking dish and bake in a hot water bath until puffed and golden, 40 to 45 minutes.


Make raspberry coulis while cake is baking. Puree raspberries with syrup, sugar and lemon juice in a blender or food processor. Pour mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl, pressing on solids. Serve pudding cake with syrup. Notes: Coulis keeps 3 days, covered and chilled. You can also make this coulis with fresh raspberries. The amounts will be slightly different: Use 2 1/2 cups fresh raspberries and 1/4 cup sugar.
