Strawberry Lemon Puddings

by Michelle on July 7, 2009

This week for Tyler Florence Fridays I made Strawberry Lemon Puddings. Isn’t that the cutest name for a dessert!

For our 4th of July weekend we were having BBQ Ribs and I wanted the dessert to be something light and refreshing! Tyler’s Strawberry Lemon Puddings were perfect. I added blueberries and sprinkled a few on top for our red, white and blue!

Strawberry Lemon Puddings
Recipe adapted from Tyler Florence

1 pound cake, store bought
1/2 cup lemon curd, store bought
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 cup powdered sugar, plus 1 tablespoon for the tops
2 cups of strawberries, hulled and sliced
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 Meyer lemon, juice only

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Set a small saucepan over medium heat and add strawberries, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar.

Set over medium heat to macerate for 4-5 minutes then remove form heat to cool.

In a large mixing bowl, whip heavy cream until you reach soft peaks. Fold in powdered sugar and lemon curd – a little at a time until they come together. Set aside in the refrigerator while you prepare the cake.

Using an inverted ramekin, carefully slice the pound cake into 1/4-inch thick, round slices. They should fit snugly inside of the ramekin itself. With the remaining scraps of pound cake, break up into coarse crumbs and toast on a sheet tray in the oven for 5 minutes until golden brown and fragrant.

Now layer the puddings. Start with a layer of the lemon cream on the bottom, followed by cake, strawberries, lemon cream and cake again. Drizzle this layer of cake with syrup from the strawberries then top with a nice swirl of lemon cream and some toasted pound cake crumbs.

Garnish with a strawberry and dust with powdered sugar.
