Bachelors don’t starve in between dinner invitations issued by kindly females who wish to save them from the quite dreadful fate of actually having to eat their own cooking! These days, in fact, they are quite likely to give their own dinner parties and most young men living or cooking on their own have at least one or two ‘company’ dishes that are quick and easy to prepare yet look attractive. Paul’s Lemon Pudding is the pidce de resistance of one such bachelor. Serve with lots of whipped cream or a fresh fruit salad for a really delicious dessert.
1 package lemon-flavoured jelly
10 fl. oz. boiling water
14 oz. canned condensed rnilk
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
Place the jelly in a large serving bowl and pour over the boiling water. Using a wooden spoon, stir briskly until the jelly has dissolved. Stir in the condensed milk and lemon rind and, using a wire whisk or rotary beater, beat until the mixture becomes light and frothy.
Place the bowl in the refrigerator and chill for 3 to 5 hours or until the pudding has set. Remove from, the refrigerator and serve.
