This week we are shining our member spotlight on Anna Julia-Harcombe.
Anna is a ThermoFun Club Member and shared with us her Thermomix Lemon Pudding converted from Nigella Lawson Recipe. Here is what Anna had to say about this recipe:
"I chose this recipe because my husband and 2 year old daughter love to have dessert after dinner and I don't always have the time to make one. So I particularly like this recipe because it's really easy to make in the Thermomix. I can just put all the ingredients into the bowl, blitz and then it's basically ready to bake. It's also very versatile, you can serve it with cream/custard or eat it like a muffin :)"
- 12 teaspoon ThermoFun Lemon Curd
- 120g butter, unsalted, softened
- 120g caster sugar
- 120g plain four
- 2 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 eggs
- 1 lemon, juice and finely grated zest
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a muffin tray with paper cups (I used silicone ones) and drop a teaspoon of lemon curd in each cup.
- Place all ingredients into TM bowl, except lemon juice and mix 15 sec / speed 5 until combined into a thick batter.
- Add lemon juice and mix 5 sec / speed 3.
- Add batter to the muffin cups, blobbing it on top of the curd, until the mixture comes three-quarters of the way up. Smooth the tops, then place on a thick oven tray.
- Bake in oven for 20 mins.
- Remove from the oven, unmold each pudding onto a small plate or shallow bowl, spooning over any lemon curd that has stuck to the bottom.
- Serve with custard, cream or ice cream. You can also heat up any remaining lemon curd in a microwave and spoon it over.
"This recipe has been converted from one of Nigella's (https://www.nigella.com/recipes/view/little-lemon-puddings) .
I've tweaked the ingredients' weight slightly to adjust to TM's scale. Also, the original recipe calls for 6 ramekins (8cm diameter x 4cm deep) to bake the batter into; in which case you need to grease the ramekins before putting the lemon curd & batter in. I don't have ramekins and found using the muffin tray is much easier. The batter fits perfectly in my 12-cup muffin tray - quantity & cooking time will vary if you use a different size muffin tray. I haven't tried it but I think it would also be delicious to add some shredded coconut into the mixture!"

I made these tonight and they were inhaled by all in a matter of seconds. Particularly enjoyed by my son who does not like chocolate. (Yes, I am serious!). So moist and delicious, served with a drizzle of cream.
Thank you Carol - great to hear! :)
This was lovely, light and fluffy and very yummy. Will make again and again. We have guest for dinner so I made batter in the afternoon, when dinner came out of the oven I spooned mixture in to ramekins and baked. Very easy. The mixture had sat for 2-3 hours and was still very light. Thank you.
Thanks Leah great to hear it was enjoyed by all! :)

My Mum made these for dessert and they were a huge hit with the family. She baked them in ramekins and was generous with the lemon curd. They were really delicious.
