  • “I must have done something wrong, as mine didn’t come out with a fluffy top or creamy base.Rather, it was more like a cheesecake consistency.I will blame my result on my lack of expertise.I tried to follow the instructions exactly, but this is probably a tricky thing to accomplish, like making a souffle.I would have liked it a little sweeter, too.I served mine with whipped cream and a scattering of fresh blackberries, which was nice.”

  • “Have always wondered what these kinds of puddings were really like, & now I do ~ THIS ONE, at least, IS GREAT! I’m a lemon lover, so I made sure I got all the zest I could from the two large lemons that I used! Had intended on sharing this with a neighbor, but after the first taste, I decided to keep it for myself ~ ALL MINE, ALL MINE!!
