Grapefruit Pudding Cake and a Guest Appearance

A few weeks ago, Leemei from My Cooking Hut asked me if I would like to bake something for the guest blogger series she was hosting on her blog. “Something simple”, she said. So simple it is. This is a variation on the classic lemon pudding cake. Light, creamy, spongy and completely refreshing. We are in the middle of citrus season here in Florida and I am taking full advantage of it. You can click here for the full story and recipe. Thanks Leemei!

    Qué bueno !!! Me encanta la idea de usar pomelo, no es una fruta que se estile demasiado por aquí pero creo que le puede dar un toque diferente a los postres. Un millón de gracias.

    Las fotos, como siempre, una maravilla.

    Thank you dear Aran – this will truly win the heart of my MOTH (Man-of-the-House) who’s 2 most favourite things in life are fresh oysters & grapefruit – oh, not together though I must hastily add!
    Millie ^_^

    The photos are stunning. I have a question. Doesn’t the milk break when the citrus juice added to it ? We in India use citrus juice to beak milk to make a cheese called panneer (simila to cottage cheese).

  26. Aran says:

    Nirmala- That is true if you were to leave the milk with the citrus juice for a few minutes but if you mix it all right away, it will not curdle. So never let it sit on the bowl together for more than 5 minutes and always add the rest of the ingredients like the yolks, etc.

  27. i didn’t know you were in florida, great now when im in florida i have someone to visit!

    oh and way to be a celebrity! :)

  28. Navita says:

    Aran,first timer here…was going through ur blog…ur are an artist…i really couldn’t do without complementing!

  29. Sounds so good, I love grapefruit and this cake does sound super easy. But you always make everything look elegant, even the simplest of recipes.

  30. Anything with just the word ‘grapefruit’ goes on my favorite list. yummy. Am I dreaming or are they breeding grafefruits kind of sweet now-a-days? I kind of miss that bitter, grapefruit taste.

  31. Nirmala says:

    I made this last weekend. Very hard to resist. But it took almost 2 hours to baken (I started baking at 150 C) and still the tops were not browned. But it tasted heavenly. Should I be mindful on the temparature ? Also I baked in an OTG. will that make any difference?

  32. Aran says:

    Nirmala- 325F is about 165C so you baked it a little bit lower than what the recipe calls for. Also, all ovens are different so baking times vary and the size of the ramekins you use also affect the time. The time doesn’t really matter as much as the consistency or texture of the final result. I’m glad you liked it!

  33. Sam says:

    Wow!! What a GREAT looking! That grapefruit photo is amazing. Can’t wait to see your posting, my mouth is watering.
