Gluten-Free Lemon Pudding Cake

lemon pudding cake


1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons gluten-free flour
1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons melted butter*
2 eggs, separated
1 cup milk or nondairy substitute*
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
* Note: For melted butter, I used oil. For nondairy substitute, I used coconut milk.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 1 1/2-quart casserole or baking dish.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk the sugar and flour. Add the lemon peel, lemon juice, and melted butter. Mix well
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks and blend in the milk. Stir into the lemon mixture.
  4. In a mixer bowl, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until moist peaks form. Gently fold the whites into the lemon mixture.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake 35-40 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly touched.

Has been a very LONG time since I’ve updated this blog! Between working full-time, a new job, a baby on the way, and feeling sick all the time, I’ve pretty much stayed out of the kitchen the last few months. During Chinese New Year break, I had some time on my hand and was feeling better from the morning sickness. So I tried a few recipes from The Gluten-Free Gourmet Cooks Comfort Foods. I discovered this simple, easy to make lemon pudding cake recipe. I had to make a few substitutions (marked with *) because of my husband’s allergies, but otherwise, the pudding cake turned out really well. I was surprised at what came out of the oven considering the ingredients I used and how I made it. Even though all the ingredients are blended together, the batter separated during the bake so that the top layer is a nice, fluffy layer of cake with pudding at the bottom! I was surprised that there was even a cake part considering I used only 3 tablespoons of gluten-free flour!

In any case, I’ll definitely be making more pudding cake in the future!

    This sounds divine and just what I’ve been looking for! I am new to the gluten-free thing and need my lemon pudding winter comfort food fix. The only recipe I have is for the gluten version and I’m not confident with substitutions yet. You have no idea how happy I am to have found this. Thanks so much for posting.

    Hope the pregnancy’s going ok, too. Congratulations!
