Low Carb High Fat and Sugar Free Lemon Pudding Cake

If you love lemon the way I do, you'll absolutely love this recipe.  It's really a mug cake that tastes like the best steamed lemon pudding - light, slightly creamy in texture, and full of lemony goodness.

This recipe makes 2 luscious servings.

Ingredients :

3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons almond flour
3 tablespoons lemon curd
2 large eggs
lemon zest for topping (optional)

Directions :
  • Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl. (I use a 2 cup measuring cup)
  • Add the almond flour and mix until well blended.
  • Add the lemon curd and mix again until well blended.
  • Now add the eggs and whip the mixture for a minute or two so some air gets incorporated into it.  This will make it light and fluffy.
  • Microwave for 2 1/2 minutes.  Don't overcook.  The top will probably still look wet but if you put a fork into it, it should have a cake-like texture.
  • Serve topped with a drizzle of whipping cream to really make it decadent! 

I made up this recipe when I was considering what else I could  make with a low sugar lemon curd I bought online at The Low Carb Grocery.  

I've been looking for a low carb lemon curd for ages and I was shocked to discover this is something Amazon does NOT carry!  Hard to believe - I know!  We're so used to them having everything. 

Even though it's delicious, regular lemon curd is a total sugar bomb, so you have to get (or make) a sugar free version.

Thankfully, after a lot of  hunting I finally found this curd made by Jok'n'Al and I've been enjoying it on toast ever since.  If you'd like to get some here is the link. (I'm not an affiliate, I just like the products.)  They also make great jams by the way.

If you don't want to buy it you can make your own.  Before I found this I used this recipe from the blenderist.  It's super simple and only takes minutes to make.  It will keep in the fridge for a few weeks and you can freeze it as well.

Whether you make your own or decide to try Jok'N'Al's, I think lemon curd is something every lemon lover should try at least one.  I love having a jar tucked away in the fridge for when those lemon cravings hit.
