Lemon Buttermilk Pudding Cake


Wow, 2 days and it seems like I haven’t been here for weeks. HOW did it get to be July? I wouldn’t believe it if the calendar didn’t say it was so.

To give a quick rundown of those 48 undocumented hours: I spent most of July 1st shopping and cooking for a barbecue for 60 that happened last night on a beautiful farm out toward Airdrie, with about a 6 hour chunk of the afternoon spent a) at my sister’s new house eating Dilly Bars and b) a backyard Canada Day party potluck, to which I brought maple cupcakes and forgot my camera. W was in little boy heaven; 19 kids in the rec room with air hockey, video games and rock band wii. Mike was in big boy heaven across in the field playing soccer for 3 hours. I ditched them at about 7 to go home and get some work done, and had to go back in my PJs to drag them out at close to 10.

Yesterday I was up at 5:30 to head to the CBC pancake breakfast, at which I took a dunk in the dunk tank (why do they not make dunk hot tubs?) in my jeans skirt, which I’m pretty sure went up over my head as I went in, then spent the rest of the day prepping for that dinner on the farm, with two 3 year olds and a 4 year old in the house (which worked out quite nicely, actually; there were miraculously fewer skirmishes than there would have been demands on me to entertain/remove forks from electrical sockets had W been on his own). I headed out (with, as it turns out, far too much food, and did I mention I set off their smoke alarm?) at around 4 and got home at close to midnight, in a hailstorm, having forgotten my wallet, almost run out of gas and driven to Airdrie to get $6.50 worth’ using the change I scrounged up from various nooks and crannies in the car.

So tonight I was absolutely not up for cooking. At all. (Besides, I was making 100 pavlovas for a demo at the Stampede on Sunday and food for our Stampede party tomorrow. So technically I was cooking anyway, just nothing edible in the immediate future.) We picked up some chicken Vietnamese subs downtown at Thi Thi (really, truly the best in town) and ate the last of a lemon buttermilk pudding cake I made for an article on desserts affected by gravity. It’s one of those cakes that separates into an airy cake and zingy sauce; it’s a nice, light version – some tend to be really heavy, with twice as much sugar. This makes a nice summer dessert; it can be made ahead and chilled, then served in a bowl with fresh berries.

Lemon Buttermilk Pudding Cake


Yields1 Serving

1 1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup sugar, divided
4 large eggs, separated
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, melted, or canola oil
pinch salt


Preheat the oven to 350°F.


In a large bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, 1/2 cup of the sugar, the egg yolks, lemon juice, flour and butter until smooth. In a clean glass or stainless steel bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form; continue beating, gradually adding the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, until the mixture is thick and glossy and holds stiff peaks. Gently fold the whites into the buttermilk mixture and scrape into an 8”x8” or 9”x9” pan that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.


Set the pan into a larger pan - 9”x13” works well - and pour enough hot water into the larger pan to come halfway up the sides of the inner pan. Bake for about 45 minutes, until the cake is puffed and golden, and the top is springy to the touch.


Remove the cake from the water bath and cool for at least half an hour if you want to serve it warm, or cool it completely and then chill in the refrigerator before serving in shallow bowls, with a spoon.

Lemon Buttermilk Pudding Cake

As I write this I can hear Bon Jovi emanating from the Stampede grounds (You Give Love a Bad Name – every word) – ooh, and now fireworks. We live close enough to see them from the roof if you climb out W’s bedroom window (he is going to have an easy time of sneaking out in a decade or so) and to walk down to go on rides and get mini donuts, or watch the chucks from the top of Scotsmans hill. All of which is a lot of fun, but to be perfectly honest I’m glad we’re heading to Tofino next weekend. (And yes, bringing my laptop! And possibly my HD camera to do some GoodBite stuff.)

    I adore W’s KISS tank top and the Gene Simmons face he is making to go with it!
    Dinner tonight was Greekish. Lamb/beef kabobs from my newly acquired Grazing cookbook (the librarian said that I needed to buy my own copy so I did). Greek salad, grilled onions & peppers, grilled pita bread with home made tzatziki (my favourite Epicure Selections add-in). Dessert was a mocha almond fudge ice cream bar from the grocery store enjoyed on our evening walk along Nanaimo’s lovely breezy waterfront.
    Have a great trip to Tofino next weekend Julie. You deserve a break & I hope you get to take one.

    hey – I’m the first comment! That has never happened before – I am usually a couple of days late…that must mean I am up too late tonight, and will pay tomorrow! But perhaps it is also a good omen that I will win the free stuff!

    Supper last night was a Moxie’s salad with chicken and black beans and tomato. A stagette. Tonight was rehearsal dinner, tomorrow is wedding dinner, and another wedding the next day… I might forget how to cook!

    I’m totally with you on the “what the what? It’s July??” train. Chicago has been unseasonably chilly for the past two months, so it feels like summer’s just begun.

    Last night was a dinner party: I served homemade sausages (chicken, some w/ spinach & feta, and others w/ sun-dried tomatoes) roasted with balsamic vinegar, red onions, and cherry tomatoes; zucchini sauteed w/ garlic & feta; a baguette w/ a caper/tomato/honey compound butter; lentil salad; and cherry pie. The friends we had over just got married, and dinner was part of their wedding present…

    Dinner last night was mostly leftovers.
    A variation of Stampede Baked Beans from Full of Beans cookbook, hamburgers, sliced tomato. Cheesecake from Starting Out Cookbook, raspberry sauce.
    We might have finished off the Bakewell Tart, but someone ate it for brunch.

    I’m thrilled by this lemon pudding cake recipe. The last one I tried just tasted like eggs:(

    Last night’s dinner was out. To my favorite local dive for sonoran hot dogs. All beef franks wrapped in bacon, stuffed in a soft roll filled with pinto beans, sauteed onions, fresh tomato and smothered with mayo and jalapeno sauce. We went home for a dessert homemade popcorn flavored ice cream.

    Hi Julie! I’m a new reader and liking what I see so far 🙂

    Dinner last night sounds really awful but was actually delicious, so bear with me: rice, topped with canned tuna and roasted red peppers (both souvenirs from Spain…what? Yes I buy canned goods on vacation), as well as shredded carrot that I pickled lightly in rice vinegar, lime juice, garlic, ginger, salt and sugar, sesame seeds and a little soy sauce. And it was great! It was just me trying to use up some bits and pieces of stuff in the freezer, but I think the reason it turned out so well was because because the ingredients were really good: the tuna was really good stuff and the rice was some sort of specialty brown rice that I bought on a whim but had a really good toasty flavour. So: strange and mishmashed, but very tasty and entirely satisfying, that was my dinner!

    This cake sounds perfect for a warm summer evening with friends. I’ll definitely have to try it sometime soon.

    Dinner was grilled pork chops with mango chutney on top- a summer favorite around here. And a veggie potato mash on the side with yukon golds, onions, peppers, corn and peas. It was great!

    Hi Julie! I’m a newbie to your blog and enjoying it immensely!
    Dinner last night was our traditional Friday Night Pizza… homemade crust with organic tomato sauce, organic mozzarella cheese, green peppers, red peppers, green and black olives, organic garlic and onions and basil too!
    For dessert we enjoyed a fresh strawberry pie that I discovered on the Baking Bites blog. I think my husband wonders why I “waste” so much time reading blogs but when I make something delicious that I found on a blog he knows enough to keep quiet and just enjoy!

    I just heard of Epicure a couple of weeks ago and they have great stuff! So much so that I’m thinking of having a party… tell your rep to call me. Anyone want to come?

    Last night dinner was homemade bacon, mushroom, cheddar burgers, homemade cornmeal onion rings, sliced little cucumbers and fresh radishes from my garden.

    Our dinner last night was Tequila Shrimp tacos. We’re at the beach in Yachats, Oregon and clamming wasn’t so hot yesterday. Dinner was supposed to be clams casino, oh well! Your lemon buttermilk pudding looks like great “beach” grub. Can’t wait to try it.

    Last night was a BBQ here with 3 other couples. Guacamole/chips and pistaschios, beer and wine while waiting for the grill – we are one of two families we know that still use charcoal! Then, burgers, Sausage/peppers/onions, grilled jalepeno poppers (made with that special contraption for grilling from Williams and Sonoma), fresh green garden salad, orzo salad, black bean salad, fresh fruit tart (dessert), card game (Up the River/Down the River) and lots of laughs.

    Dinner was quesadillas made with Ancient Grains tortillas, chicken, black beans, jack cheese, red/jalapeno peppers, red onion, lime juice and cumin. Crunchy, spicy and delish!

    One can never have too many spices/condiments in their stash!

    That is my kind of cake! Nice and light and fluffy. I’m attending a 1 year old’s birthday party tomorrow, so maybe I’ll bring that…..would it work as cupcakes?

    Dinner last night was cheap and delish. I felt all Mexican, so I pulled out a few cookbooks and felt inspired. We had flank steak marinated in lime juice, jalapenos, garlic, chili powder and sugar. Grilled on the BBQ and sliced thin. I made a Mexican rice (crazy yummy) grilled zucchini and loads of prawns in a garlic butter with cajun seasoning. SO GOOOOOOOD!

    Homemade soft pretzels were the mainstay of last night’s dinner, with some deli sausages (Thuringer and Italian)off the grill with a variety of mustards (Dijon, ballpark, German hot and German sweet)and cream cheese. I’d never made pretzels before but now I’m hooked! Between The Yardman and I, nine of the twelve disappeared! For shame!

    I must say, I really enjoy it when your readers mention where they are emailing from. It adds another dimension to their various comments. I’m sending from a ranch 50 km. west of Edmonton where we FINALLY got some rain!

    July 4, 2009 at 9:34 am

    I can’t wait to try this cake! Supper was bbq’ed veggie burgers and kubie burgers, corn on the cob, and sliced potatoes wrapped in foil and thrown on the grill too. I love Fridays in the summer; I wait for my husband to get home and he does the grilling!

    Supper last night for the boys and I were some quick ham & cheese tortillas, after a dip in Miette Hot Springs on our way home (to Spruce Grove) from a couple of days camping in Jasper, along with some watermelon. That cake looks just like what Mom used to make. It will be on the menu soon. I must tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog. The ‘GoodBite’ bit was fantastic. Thanks Julie!

    Coincidently enough, last night’s supper was inspired by you….I dug out “Grazing” to find some quick and easy recipes to make for company. We had teriyaki beef sticks (served with peanut sauce) and salmon skewers, along with an asian coleslaw mix, jasmine rice & sesame spinach. The appetizer was spinach & artichoke dip with pita chips and dessert was a blueberry crisp with vanilla ice cream!

  30. Erica B.
    July 4, 2009 at 11:09 am

    Dinner last night was chicken, some sauteed spinach with pita and tzatziki. My MIL & I snuck out to Nectar for dessert after the kids were in bed – we split a cherry tart with fromage blanc and a chocolate macaron. YUM!

    Your schedule is nutso and yet you turnout a beautiful dessert like this. Kudos.
    Dinner last night was linguine and clams (canned) with white wine and tons of parsley from the garden.
    Tonight will probably be bread and jam, since I spent most of the afternoon making red currant jelly. It sure is pretty, though.

    Since we were on an Alberta Prairie Railroad excursion out of Stettler yesterday, we had a fabulous roast beef buffet dinner with all the trimmings,in Big Valley. It was a great day, and I would recommend it for those of you in Central Alberta. Love lemon of any kind and I will definitely be trying your cake Julie.

    One can *never* have too many Epicure spice mixes in their pantry – you should see mine … 🙂

    As for supper last night – Boursin Pasta (I know, I know – pretty boring) – but there was very little point to cooking something elaborate because my hubby was gone for the afternoon, seeing the new “Transformers” movie … 🙂

    Oh, that cake sounds delicious! Is it okay to substitute the cheater version of buttermilk (souring milk with lemon juice or vinegar)?

    Dinner last night was pasta tossed with grilled bison sausage, cherry tomatoes and red peppers. The pasta was whole wheat rotini from the marvelous Italian Store off McKnight up by the airport. I just discovered this amazing place and I wanted to move right in as soon as I stepped in the door!

    This is one of my all time , old fashioned favourite desserts. I love the tangy lemon pudding and cakey layer formed by the egg whites and flour mixture. The water bath or bain marie creates a wonderful steamed pudding texture. The best part is this dessert is not high in calories, unless of course, you lay on a dollop of whipped cream!

    Since I was painting the deck, hubby decided to make dinner. So he threw a small roast in the oven along with potatoes, and made a salad with greens from the garden. Of course I had to come in to make the gravy!

    Dinner was Janet and Greta’s new Chicken Burgers recently available at Costco (delicious) and a simple Greek Salad with fresh mint and oregano in the mix. And, for dessert, your Maple White Chocolate Chip cookies, made for Canada’s birthday!!
    Looking forward to trying that wonderful cake… I love baking with buttermilk, the results are so good!

    I thought I was busy…not a chance! What a great cake. I am going to try this one – and I mean that. I love buttermilk and lemon. We made burgers for the 4th and they were absolutely delicious. We used herbs from our tiny (and I mean tiny!) herb garden and lots of fresh veggies.

    Dinner last night was: corn on the cob, boiled little potato company potatoes and my husband’s famous homemade Caesar salad with accoutrements: boiled eggs, capers, bacon nibs, cajun chicken strips. Delicious. I’ve made lemon pudding cake a hundred times probably, but never with buttermilk. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Dinner last nite was Taco Bell on the way home from Carson Pegasus Provicial Park (near Whitecourt AB). The food was uneventful but our day made up for it….We planned to leave Edmonton early in the morning but left just before noon (we spent the morning taking our dog to the vet for xrays). After driving for 2 hours to meet my family, who had taken our daughter the night before, we got a phone call saying that our daughter just had a bad bike accident. When we arrived we found our daughter with an icepack on her face, being doctored by her Grama and Aunt. She was riding her bike down a hill on a gravel road and her face broke her fall. So we packed her up, took her to the hospital in town and then turned around and drove back to Edmonton.

    I guess I am writing this here as emotional therapy after an exhausting, emotional day.

    Our daughter will be ok…no dental damage,alot of road rash, fat lip and bruising. Kids are so resilient..she is already cracking jokes!
    Would love some ES spices…to spice up my life in a different way!

    Ooo, the Tyee Fish Rub from Epicure Selections is awesome! I learned this from a Norwegian friend (who used the Norwegian version of Tyee Fish Rub): (It helps to have a big hunk of wild salmon lying around) Cut squares of tin foil (as wide as the tin foil is, cutting along the length to make a square) and layer in a stack the following: a meal-sized piece of salmon(deck of cards size-ish) a pat of butter, sprinkle on Tyee Fish rub, thinly sliced potatoes, butter, fish rub, a few thinly sliced rings of onions, butter, fish rub, gather corners of tin foil, twist up into giant Hershey’s Kiss package, grill for (um..who knows, my husband does this part…) and then each person gets one of these packets, serve with salad and bread. Yum!

    I saw you and Ned on TV this afternoon on A-Channel. Its the first time I’ve had a chance to catch it and I really liked it.

    Dinner last night was a mushroom, zucchini and cheddar omelette and roasted broccoli with balsamic drizzle.

    I’ve been salivating over the maple cupcakes and I plan to make them this week — YUM!

    Hi Julie

    Dinner was an old favourite that we haven’t had in ages. We call it Groundnut Stew and it is made with ground meat (turkey, beef, pork etc.) with tomato paste, peanut butter, onions and cayenne. This stew gets scooped onto white rice and topped with numerous items such as….green onion, green peppers, coconut, mandarin oranges, pineapple, banana, peanuts, cantaloupe, tomatoes and tonight we also used fresh raspberries. I can think of others that would be great too like cilantro, black beans, yellow pepper….
    For dessert I unfortunately ruined the gorgeous mini blackberries and plump raspberries my husband had picked by making a crisp that had a topping of way too much flour and too little butter (trying to reduce the fat). I need the perfect crumble topping for fruit crisps!

    Finally ! I got the chickens we ordered from the hutterites…you know the ones that are small turkeys—and they are so well priced. We pay $8 for one bird. This says alot especially when you look at the costco birds – 3 tiny chickens (look like cornish hens) for 25 bucks –boy did I strike the deal! So roasted chicken, potato salad and peas….

    Last night was a tribute to Stampede and I made a chili but with ground turkey and black beans. The weather was iffy with rain storms, so it hit the spot. Do like the looks of the Lemon Buttermilk Pudding Cake. Would it work with Splenda to replace the sugar?

    July 6, 2009 at 6:05 pm

    Linda – can’t really say about the Splenda, I haven’t tried it. But do keep in mind that brown sugar has the exact same amount of carbs and MORE calories than regular brown sugar. Because it’s sweeter you don’t need as much, but I don’t think people realize that, and just use it in place of brown sugar.

    i was in south quebec visiting my mom, who only has dial up so have been unable to go online! boy did i miss alot!
    dinner last night was at our stop in belleville on the way home, at a restaurant called capers…very good food!
    the kids had penne with butter and cheese, not as adventurous as myself
    i had their pizza, which is more like a homemade flatbread dough, with wild mushrooms, truffle oil, chives and some cheese…also enjoyed very much a ceasar salad made with a very creamy buffalo mozzarella, roasted cherry toms, and tasty crunchy croutons! I so LOVE this restaurant!
    and i also love epicure selections! hint hint! wink wink! nudge nudge!
    take care! enjoy the trip to tofino!

    July 6, 2009 at 7:43 pm

    oh i almost forgot the desserts at capers were amazing, we had two of them, one was a take off of smores, a rich brownie,with vanilla icecream on top and then meringue that was torched a bit…so frickin good, my 9 year old gobbled that one up, leaving me with a tribute to elvis… brioche french toasted and topped with caramelized bananas, and house made peanut butter ice cream i just didnt get the bacon on it, but it can come with that addition!
