This lemon budino recipe is delicious and easy to make. It requires only a few basic ingredients, and meyer lemon can be used if desired.
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 egg, separated
- 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon minced preserved lemon peel
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter two 3/4-cup ramekins. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar, egg yolks, flour, lemon juice, and preserved lemon peel in medium bowl and stir to combine. Whisk in the milk.
- In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites with a sprinkle of salt until frothy. Gradually add remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and beat until soft peaks form. Fold into the lemon mixture until just combined. Divide between the two ramekins, and place them in a baking dish with just enough water to reach half way up the ramekins. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until just beginning to become golden brown on the top.
- Serve at room temp or warm.
