How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°F. In a small saucepan, combine milk and butter, and cook over medium heat until milk is scalded and butter is melted, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

Step 2

Place egg yolks in a bowl. Gradually whisk in hot milk. Whisk in sugar, flour, orange peel and orange juice.

Step 3

In a large clean bowl, whip egg whites and salt with an electric mixer until stiff, but not dry. Fold gently into the orange mixture. Spoon pudding into 8 (6 oz.) ramekins or custard cups. Arrange cups in a baking pan or roasting pan. Add enough hot tap water to come halfway up sides of cups.

Step 4

Bake puddings until tops are golden, about 15 minutes. Let ramekins cool in water bath for 10 minutes, then remove and place on a rack to cool completely. Serve pudding at room temperature or chilled.

I make this often in a lemon version. It is a family favorite -- and very inexpensive.
