Lemon Pudding Cake – That’s right. I said Cake.

I haven’t posted much on cooking lately.  The baby-ness has consumed the blog.  Sorry.  But I’m still cooking.  In fact, I have a turkey thigh slow cooking on hour number 6 that I’ll be serving on brown rice with some fresh salad greens.

I’m still getting much of my inspiration from cooking shows.  I can’t believe I was able to pull this dessert off.  It’s relatively easy and is based on really simple ingredients.  I didn’t have buttermilk but I found this easy solution.  Take a tablespoon of white vinegar (or lemon juice) and put it into a one cup measuring cup.  Then fill the rest of the cup with milk. Mix. Let stand for 5 minutes and now you have a buttermilk substitute.

This was amazing as part of a candle-lit dessert and also good as a breakfast the next day (though not as great).

    Looks and sounds delish. I’d have to admit I’ve not done much with buttermilk myself.

    The problem with buttermilk is after you use the amount you need for a recipe, what the heck do you do with the rest?? I ended up making lots of biscuits. Which is not really a bad thing, I guess!

    There’s also buttermilk pancakes, or buttermilk fried chicken, or buttermilk mashed potatoes (never tried that one, though).
