Delight in vegan Irish lemon pudding, a tangy dessert sure to satisfy sweet cravings. With its bright, sunny flavor and light texture, Irish lemon pudding is a delightful treat that can be enjoyed by vegans and non-vegans alike.

We were looking for an Irish dish to make for St. Patty’s Day, and we came across this yummy Irish Lemon Pudding recipe.  It looked interesting and easy enough for a Vegan experiment attempt.  We swapped out the eggs for aquafaba, and to our surprise the results were really exceptional, first try!

Vegan Irish Lemon Pudding with Aquafaba?

Yes, aquafaba, which is actually the liquid that is in a can of chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans).  When you open up a can of chickpeas, you simply reserve this liquid and keep it on hand to use as an egg replacer!  It’s pretty magical making pudding with aquafaba!

Vegan Irish Lemon Pudding Recipe – Simple Ingredients

  • Organic Sugar
  • Vegan Butter
  • Aquafaba (liquid from canned chickpeas)
  • 2 Lemons (lemon juice and lemon zest)
  • Flour (Could probably use arrowroot starch or cornstarch, I would halve the amount for the thickener)
  • Dairy-Free Milk (we used unsweetened soy, but you can use any kind of plant milk, like coconut cream, full fat coconut milk, oat milk, almond milk, etc.)

How To Make This Vegan Irish Lemon Pudding Recipe

It’s such an easy recipe.  Grease a 9-inch pie pan.  If you have a springform pan that would be even better.  Mix up all ingredients, except for the aquafaba in a medium-large bowl.

Whisk the aquafaba in a small bowl until it’s foamy (it should just take about 30 seconds).  Mix the foamy aquafaba in with the rest of the ingredients stirring together well combined. Then pour the mixture into the pie dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 35-40 minutes.

How To Tell If The Lemon Irish Pudding Is Set

Once the pie starts to get just very slightly brown around the edges you can remove it from the oven, and let it cool.  The pudding will still be a little jiggly.  After about 15 minutes you should notice the pie is setting up.

You can dig in then if you like.  If you chill the pie in the fridge for a few hours the texture will firm up some more (it was so good the next day!). Cover with some plastic wrap.

The Taste & Texture Of Lemon Irish Pudding

It tastes so good.  It’s not too sweet, because only 1/4 cup of sugar is used.  It has quite a strong lemon taste.  So if you don’t enjoy lemon flavor, you’re on the wrong page (we’ve got plenty of other delicious dessert recipes for you to try)! 🙂

The texture is firmer than a traditional pudding.  I’d say it’s more like a creme brulee texture.  You will love how easy it is to make this lemon pudding with aquafaba!
