Description

Easy to make this Portuguese Egg Pudding is ready in less than an hour. Drawing inspiration from desserts of the Alentejo region of Portugal, this egg pudding is made with fresh lemon zest and then sprinkled with plenty of cinnamon before being baked to perfection. The end result is a rich pudding with a lovely smooth and creamy texture that is perfectly paired with the cinnamon topping. Serve with your favorite sauce or freshly whipped cream for a tasty post-dinner treat.
