Recently I had dessert in a lovely café near where I live. One of their signature desserts is a lemon pudding that tastes as if it may have a cream cheese base. It was so good that I decided to go home and experiment.

Carol’s recipe is based on the classic, Blancmange, a sweet pudding made from milk and thickened with cornstarch, gelatin or other thickener. In the late 1800s/early 1900s, this was a food given to people who were ill to build back their strength. As we had no antibiotics, food was critically important. This is a nice treat for kids when their braces get tightened or when they’re home with the flu. Feel free to use extract if you prefer though the vanilla bean does impart a lovely flavor.

David says that this is not so much pudding consistency, but more like sticky rice. If you would like it thinner, add 1/2 cup or so more coconut milk.
This is a rich, traditional-style pudding. It’s closer to a very moist cake in texture than what we think of as pudding. With lemon sauce and whipped cream, it’s divine!
