Irish lemon Pudding Tart is creamy like a baked custard. It’s not overly sweet and has a shortbread crust; perfect for baby showers or brunching.
This dessert. Ohhhhhh wow you guys. Smooth and creamy lemon custard in a totally perfect tart crust. Simple ingredients that you probably have on hand all the time put together in a pretty way. Just the right thing for a shower.
Which is exactly why I made it!
Because this is Omeletta’s Surprise Baby Shower!
Let’s take a second to meet Ruthy —>>>
AKA Omeletta, self-proclaimed food nerd, who is having a baby!
A few months back we participated in the Leftovers Club and swapped some delicious baked goodies. Ruthy sent me some delicious apple sandwich cookies in the mail, but I’ve always loved her site!
She was one of the first food blogs I read on the regular, and I love her little space of recipes and writing, which bounces from inventive and creative to super cozy comfort foods. It’s weird the camaraderie you develop working entirely remotely while talking about food all the live long day.
Ruthy is a favorite!
I was trying to figure out what to make for her little virtual baby shower here, and if you scroll to the end of this post for all the other baby shower goodies you’ll see a running Irish theme.
Ruthy is married to the Big Man,who she met while living in Ireland for a few years.
A traditional lemon pudding seemed like just the ticket. This dessert is not overly sweet and is definitely not “pudding” in the Jell-O sense of the word.
It’s more of a baked custard — the texture is kind of like cheesecake except fluffy because it’s all folded full of egg whites that are beaten meringue-style. You are gonna love it!
Happy Happy Baby Shower Ruthy!
Lots of people pitched in to make this little surprise baby shower happen and all of them made some delicious food. Be sure to check it out!!!

The crust will come together quickly but does need to chill for about 30 minutes before baking. Be sure you allow yourself time for that or make the crust ahead. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
