“Posted for ZWT6 - Great Britain Region. This traditional Welsh pudding recipe serves 4 - 6 guests. Serve it hot, warm or cold. Delicious served with cream! Great as a dessert or with afternoon tea. The recipes I found for this "pudding" all called for a shortcrust pastry for which I've included the recipe. The pastry can be made with all butter (non-traditional) or using a half and half mixture of pure lard and butter.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 14 cups all-purpose flour (225 grams)
  • 8 tablespoons butter (100 grams, or use 50 grams butter and 50 grams lard)
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 eggs, whole
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 13 cup caster sugar (superfine granulated, 75 grams)
  • 12 lemon, grated rind of
  • 2 tablespoons fine-cut marmalade (30 ml)
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted (100 grams)


  1. FOR SHORTCRUST PASTRY: Sieve the flour and salt together into a bowl.
  2. Cut the butter (or if using the lard/butter combo) ½ inch (1.5 cm) cubes and rub lightly into flour, lifting the mixture to add air, until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Make a well in the middle of the mixture and stir in enough water using a knife, until a soft but not sticky pastry is formed.
  4. Cover tightly and allow to rest in a fridge for 15 - 30 minutes.
  5. Roll out the pastry and use to line a 7 inch (15 cm) tart tin. Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C or mark 6) for 10 -15 minutes until set.
  6. Beat together the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, grated lemon rind and marmalade. Whisk in the melted butter.
  7. Pour the egg mixture into the pastry and bake at 375°F (190°C or mark 5) for a further 20 minutes. Serve warm from the oven or allow to cool and serve that way too.
