Plaid or a little lemon ...

... pudding with yoghurt and blackberries, a gift from Bill Granger of The Times.

Ingredients for 4 servings:

50g unsalted butter
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
115g caster sugar
2 eggs, separated
40g plain flour, sifted
300ml milk
2 tbsp lemon juice
Ingredients to serve:
Plain yoghurt
250g blackberries
Icing sugar, for dusting 

1 Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4. Place the butter, lemon zest and sugar in a bowl and beat until pale and creamy. Add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold through the flour, then gradually add the milk in a steady stream, whisking lightly to combine. Add the lemon juice and mix to combine. The mixture will look slightly curdled.

2 Place the egg whites in a clean, dry stainless-steel bowl and whisk until stiff peaks form. Using a large metal spoon, fold lightly through the pudding batter. Pour the batter into four 250ml oven-proof ramekins or dariole moulds and place on a baking tray. Bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Place a dollop of yoghurt and the blackberries on top, then dust with icing sugar.

So what is it to be, the Plaid Cymru conference or pudding ...

... the little lemon pudding wins hands down, on a rainy afternoon.
