I find that aside of ice creams, sherbets or gelatos, it is not always easy to create a light summer dessert. Citrus flavours are the answer for me – and anything that turns out to be not too sweet does get great reviews from those who I serve it to. One of my favourites is a lemon udding – and this recipe is very easy to make, turns out beautifully and if you want to add something to the finished dessert, try fresh berries. Last time I made this, I covered the top with fresh raspberies – great taste combination!
