Lemon Pudding Cake

For dessert, Minoo shared this delicious Lemon Pudding Cake recipe at the South Arm Cooking Club for seniors. The recipe somehow did not turn out as it should be as there is a confusion in translating the recipe from metric weight to cup. Nevertheless, I like this slightly cakey recipe.
