Lemon Pudding

This lovely lemon pudding recipe was submitted to by Iranian chef by Farhad Zafari of iranchef.

I love lemon pudding and this looks like a great recipe. I love the addition of healthy buttermilk to the recipe. It will give it a nice tart taste. Replace the buttermilk with regular milk if you prefer.

The velvety texture of this pudding is so nice.

This pudding recipe is a great recipe to serve for company or every day. It’s easy to make but so delicious.

The use of buttermilk gives this lemon pudding a bit of a sweet tart taste that is just a bit different but quite good.
