Lemon Ricotta Pudding

Local lemons are cheap & plentiful at the moment, and the evenings are still cool enough to enjoy baking & eating this simple, but delicious dessert.

From The Fresh Ingredient

200g Perfect Italiano Original Ricotta
2 lemons, rind finely grated, juiced
2 free-range eggs
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons pistachios, roughly chopped
From the pantry
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 cup self-raising flour, sifted

Preheat oven to 190°C. Grease a 3-cup capacity ovenproof dish.
Place ricotta, lemon rind, 1/4 cup lemon juice, eggs and 1/3 cup sugar in a bowl. Using a balloon whisk, whisk until smooth. Using a wooden spoon, stir in flour. Mix well to combine. Spoon batter into prepared dish. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Preheat grill on medium. Sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon sugar over surface of pudding. Place under grill and cook for 1 minute or until golden. Drizzle with honey, sprinkle with pistachios and serve with good quality ice-cream.
I suggest Bravo Gelato Pistachio, or Maggie Beer Lemon Curd (both available from The Fresh Ingredient)
