It was Charles Darwin's birthday yesterday, and at MSU we of course had a big party to celebrate the day. Unfortunately, two days ago I had two wisdom teeth removed, and I was in a lot of pain yesterday, despite a decent acetaminophen/codeine cocktail, so I couldn't go. Besides, I'm also on penicillin, and not being able to drink alcohol at a party is like partying without alcohol to me.
But, Rob Pennock did introduce me to the idea of looking up Emma Darwin's recipes at The Complete Works of Charles Darwin Online. So yesterday I made the Citron Pudding:
I didn't have cream, so I used yoghurt. And cane sugar instead of sifted sugar. I used both lemon juice and lemon skin. Here's how it turned out:
I baked it at 375 Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes, and the result was superb. Thank you Emma, and congratz to Charles.
