Budino al Limone… senza uova

Our last night here after a wonderful and productive six weeks. Sad to leave, as usual, but looking forward to trying some of this summer’s recipes in my fabulous Cambridge kitchen this year.

Last night Bella made her brownies to use up the eggs. All I have left to use up are 2 lemons and half liter of milk… hmmm. Can I make pudding out them? I do have cornstarch. I found this vegan recipe:


And adapted…

2 T cornstarch + 2 T cold water — mix well together 1 c. milk, juice of 2 lemons, 1/2 c powdered sugar, 1/2 c brown sugar (all the remaining white sugar went to the brownies) — mix in a saucepan.

Turn on the heat, add the cornstarch and stir until boiling and thick. Took about 5 minutes. It’s in the fridge now firming up. Licking the pan, it’s not really pudding… more like a caramelized sauce. Not super sweet, but lemony.

Many hours later it is firm. I turned it out of the bowl and plop… Hmm. I’d say it’s a lemon flan. Not bad!
