This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Our #SpringSweetsWeek sponsors are helping us give away some great prizes.   Thank you to Dixie CrystalsMelissa's ProduceAnolonSweets & TreatsTaylor and Colledge, and Nairn's for your generosity.   We have an incredible giveaway with six amazing prizes and would love it if you would take a moment to read about it and the prizes that you can win

What is the Difference in Regular Lemons and Meyer Lemons?

Meyer lemons have thin, golden yellow skin. As a result, they are sweeter in flavor. They are not as acidic either. They are great to use in lemon curd and my favorite Pioneer Woman Lemon Bars.

Here's What You Need to Make This Recipe

  • lemon zest and juice ~ Meyer lemon juice and the zest of the lemon are the star of this dish! The zest gives it zing.
  • egg yolks and cornstarch ~ egg yolks create a custard like base while the cornstarch thickens the pudding.
  • heavy cream ~ it’s essential for this recipe, it will not curdle when mixed with lemon.
  • milk ~ lightens the mixture.
  • sugar ~ balances the tartness of the hefty half cup of lemon juice and allows that lemon flavor to shine through.
  • salt ~ salt enhances flavors whether they’re sweet or savory.

For this recipe, I want to thank Dixie Crystals and Melissa's Produce for providing the ingredients used in this recipe.

Meyer Lemon Pudding

Meyer Lemon Pudding

Meyer Lemon Pudding is sweet and delicious and only takes 10 minutes to make.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • zest of 1 lemon

For the whipped topping

  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar


  1. `Set a large mesh strainer over a large heat-proof bowl and set aside.
  2. Put all the ingredients into a saucepan and whisk to combine. Whisk until everything is fully combined and egg yolks are broken and mixed in.
  3. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until it thickens. Remove from the heat just as it comes to a boil. Do not scorch the pudding.
  4. Immediately pour the pudding through the strainer, pushing everything through with the back of a silicone spatula or spoonula.
  5. Serve the pudding warm or chill the pudding in a large bowl, or spoon it into individual bowls or cups.
  6. If you decide to keep it in the large bowl, place a piece of plastic wrap over the surface before refrigerating to prevent skin from forming.
  7. To make whipped cream for the top, place heavy cream in your mixer. Beat with a whisk on high speed. As it begins to form, stir in the powdered sugar and remove it once it puffs up. Be careful not to go too far because you will break it up and it will start to make butter.
  8. Serve the pudding with whipped cream, if you like.
