OOh yes, this is what I've been looking for. My husband grew up on Lemon Delicious. My grandmother (in the UK) had her own verison called Lemon Surprise. Made it tonight and we all loved it. Just the right blend of yummy loose lemon custard in the bottom and light as a feather sponge on top. Thank you.

I followed the recipe exactly and it was great. I put a skewer in at the end and it came out sticky but when I read the description, I realised there is a sauce underneath so a sticky skewer was to be expected. I served this at a dinner party and all the adults loved it but two out of four children didn't like.

Deliciously light - DH thought if was more a souffle than a pudding. Very tangy and easy to make. Was cooked in 30 minutes at 170 degree C in a fan forced oven. Out of habit I greased the ovenproof dish. Next time we make it DH has requested I try it as individual servings.

I grew up eating this as a kid in NZ. We had lemon trees in our backyard, so my Mum made it alot:-)I later made it for my own kids. I made it the other day for my work mates, they loved it. We're having it today for Xmas dinner!!!

I could not believe how light and fluffy this spounge turned out. Fabulous with such a delicious sauce. I made the recipe exactally as written, not changing anything and taking great care to fold as gently as possible (in fact I imagined Kooka watching over my shoulder!). The results are absolutely wonderful. Another fabulous recipe, thank you Kooka.

Not too difficult to make and the most amazing lemony flavour - I loved this... Oh, to have been a child in Australia! I made it for a family gathering (of my other half's family - talk about a baptism of fire!) and it went down a treat. Thank you!

Perfect! I did just as directed and was careful not to over-mix - popped it in the oven with quite a few "lumps of white" and it came out a treat - a light lemony sponge over a thick, delicious lemony sauce, just as promised by Kooka. In fact, DH had two helpings. It brought back childhood memories for me too Chrissyo. But, did you know it was also considered a dish fit for Royalty? Many years ago it was made for Queen Elizabeth during one of her visits to Australia. And now a tip - although I'm not sure if it's correct - I've heard it said that you must be sure to stand the pudding in a dish of water while it is baking, or otherwise the sauce won't form. Thanks for posting Kooka!

Ive made this dessert before using a slightly different technique, this still resulted in a delicious pudding. Perfect balance of tart and sweet..verry yummy!

This worked very well. Brought back lots of childhood memories. My DD just loved it and asked could we have it again soon. With 1/2 cup lemon juice, there was plenty of tangy sauce. Thank you Kooka for taking me back in time to our childhood day.
