Speedy Lemon Pudding

This microwavable sponge pudding is ready in just 10 minutes; it goes to show that puddings don’t need hours of prep to taste good.


  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g unsalted butter - softened
  • 100g gluten and wheat free self-raising flour (I use Doves Farm)
  • 2 large eggs
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp good quality lemon curd

In a large bowl, beat the sugar and butter until light and creamy, Add the eggs, lemon juice and zest and continue beating. Fold in the flour and spoon the mixture into a medium sized microwave-proof baking dish, such as a Pyrex bowl, that has been lightly greased.

Microwave on High for 3 minutes, until risen and set all the way through. Allow to stand for 1 minute. Whilst the pudding is resting, heat the lemon curd in the microwave for 30 seconds and stir until smooth.

Pour the lemon curd over the pudding and serve with a dollop of double cream or vanilla ice cream.
