Baked Lemon sponge pudding

Hello all, I love to share a wonderful recipe for you today and this formula has held back in my old precious recipe box for more than 20 years since. As a long history, but it is one of my easiest recipes, only need few ingredients that always keep in our house, and the way is far easier than you think, not much time consuming compared with the classic steam pudding, you can’t believe this cake so moist and the texture just like a cheesecake, so soft and smooth! What else do you want to ask for?

The puddings are baked in a water bath as this offers a moist and airy, constant heat so the puddings bake gently and slow. This ensures moist and tender puddings. To make a water bath, place the baking tin in a larger baking pan (or any size pan that will fit the tin and leave about 1 inch around the edges) and then carefully pour in enough hot water so that the water comes about halfway up the sides of the baking tin.
