Tempt My Tummy Tuesday… Lime Pudding Cakes

by Lisa on May 16, 2011


I love desserts with citrus flavors.  Lime or Lemon-I don’t care.  It is all good to me.  When I found this recipe via Tasteofhome.com, I had to try it!



Lime Pudding Cakes

  • 2 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 -1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup lime or lemon juice
  • 1 tsp grated lime or lemon peel
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 -1/4 cup 2% milk
  1. In a small bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly.  Add the flour, salt, lime juice and peel; mix well.  Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; gently fold into batter.
  2. Pour into six ungreased 6-oz custard cups.  Place cups in a large baking pan; add 1 in. water to pan.
  3. Bake, uncovered, at 325 for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean and top is golden.    Serve war or at room temperature.

Won’t this be a great recipe for the summer?  YUM!

Yum! I have a bag full of limes I bought at Wal-mart last week partly for tomorrow’s chicken tacos. I think I’ll use some of them for this recipe as well. Thanks so much for sharing!

Do you think I could cook this in some other sort of pan—like a 8×8 or 13×9 pan? I don’t have the little custard cups, but this sounds fabulous!! Think it would work in something else?

I’m not sure Liz. :-/

Those would go great with this Venicia’s Veal Marsala. You’ve got to try it…it’s delish!

Those look great! My family loves key lime pie so I be they’d like these too.

This sounds fabulous! I also love lemon/lime desserts.

Oooo sounds fabulous and refreshing…perfect summer evening dessert! I’m a new follower and new to the linky…thanks for hosting!


Michelle May 17, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Ummm, yum! That sounds delicious. I make mango custards that sounds similar in the outcome, but it’s a totally different method and ingredients. I’m definitely making this!


Gretchen May 17, 2011 at 2:52 pm

Oh, that looks good. I have never tried to make anything like that before. I do love lime. Thanks for the recipe.

My husband loves key lime pie. I’m wondering if this would be a nice alternative since we live in the Midwest and it can be hard to get good key limes. Thanks for the recipe idea.

Everything looks so yummy. Thanks for hosting.
