Author Notes: Varying my key lime pie recipe I am making a stove top version as a pudding. This creamy smooth pudding, so refreshing with its clear, strong citrus focus, has a slight texture added by the zest. A homemade graham cracker would be a perfect additional garnish.Sagegreen

Serves 4

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 14 ounces condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed key lime juice
  • 2 tbl. zest of key limes (more or less, to your taste)
  • creme fraiche, whipped cream or toasted meringue garnish
  • key lime wheels for garnish
  1. Be sure to wash your key limes before using. Then whisk the egg yolks with the condensed milk and key lime juice.
  2. Using a double boiler or heavy sauce pan with attentive, careful, constant stirring, bring almost to a boil. Continue to stir as the pudding simmers slowly and thickens. When thickened, stir in the lime zest and heat for 2 more minutes.
  3. Pour into individual serving dishes. Place cut parchment paper on top to prevent a skin from forming. Let cool. Serve chilled with a garnish of creme fraiche or whipped cream and fresh key lime wheels. Alternatively, you can top with egg whites beaten stiff with a little sugar then toasted under the broiler until browned or torched. If you could serve this with a homemade graham cracker, it would be just like a pudding pie.

Thank you for this recipe! I've been craving key lime pie and this perfectly quenched that craving. I added one extra yolk, a bit more lime juice, and just a bit of cornstarch. Also, I used regular limes. Came out perfectly! Thank you!
