Lime Pudding Cake with Berries


3/4 cup (175 mL) granulated sugar
2 tbsp (25 mL) soft margarine
Grated rind of 3 limes or 2 lemons
2 eggs, separated
1/3 cup (75 mL) fresh lime or lemon juice
1/4 cup (50 mL) all-purpose flour
1 cup (25 mL) low-fat milk
2 cups (500 mL) blueberries or sliced strawberries


In mixing bowl, beat together sugar, margarine and lime rind. Beat in egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in lime juice, then flour and milk.

In separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter. Pour mixture into 9-inch (1.5 L) square baking dish. Place in larger pan; pour boiling water into outer pan to come about 1 inch (2.5 cm) up sides of pan. Bake in preheated 350°F (180°C) oven until top is set and golden, about 40 minutes. Spoon into serving dishes and top with berries. Serve warm or cold.
