Recipe: Hot lemon blueberry pudding cake
1 cup fresh blueberries
4 large eggs, separated
Grated zest of 1 lemon
1⁄3 cup fresh lemon juice
4 tablespoons (1⁄2 stick) butter, at room temperature
1 2⁄3 cups milk
1 cup sugar
1⁄3 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
Coat the insert of a 5- to 7-quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. Spread the blueberries over the bottom of the slow cooker. Beat the egg whites in a large mixer bowl until soft peaks form, and set aside.
Whisk the egg yolks in another mixer bowl. Add the zest and juice, butter, and milk and whisk until blended. Stir together the sugar, flour, and salt in another bowl and add to the egg yolk mixture. Beat until smooth, then fold into the reserved egg whites. Transfer the batter to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 2 1⁄2 hours. Allow the cake to cool slightly before serving.
