Lemon Pudding Cake Preview

One of my favourite desserts growing up was lemon pudding cake. But, I have never been able to replicate the taste and texture of a recipe that relies on egg whites. And its not for lack of trying. I went through many experiments with Ener-G egg replacer and tofu--all of which ended with inedible disasters. But tonight was a breakthrough! I made a tasty lemon pudding/custard, topped it with the Isa's lemon gem cupcake batter, then baked it. Success! It was not as spongy as the original, but the taste was superb. I want to make a few alterations and give the recipe one more try before I post it. I would also like to get permission to post the lemon gem recipe (still one of my favourites) from Vegan With a Vengeance.

So, Isa, if you still stop by this blog . . . might I be able to post the lemon gem cupcake recipe?

This looks so divine! Please post your recipe as soon as you can. You had a great idea using that lemon gem cupcake batter--love those cupcakes. Thanks!

Your cake looks nice!
By the way: The lemon gem recipe is already floating around in the web.

Your cake looks yummy!!! I've been trying to get that cake texture for my upside down cake recipe.

FYI: Compassionate Cooks has a lemon cake recipe that is good and has a sponge-y texture. I wasn't 100% keen on it, but my husband loved it! See

I didn't make this sauce, but the recipe uses it:

You can print the recipe, and you can always email me just in case I miss something on your blog. But I won't, of course.

Looks really good! Can't wait to try this recipe; I'm looking to expand my vegan baking recipe file.

Bryanna Clark Grogan also has a really good lemon pudding cake... I never tried a lemon pudding cake before hers, so I'm not sure what a non-vegan variety would/"should" taste like, but I enjoyed it.


I look forward to trying your version once the recipe/notes are posted, too :)
