Dad was the gardener in our family. He grew tomatoes, beans, silverbeet and rhubarb in his vegie plot. There was a passionfruit vine on the back fence and, of course, a lemon tree in the corner. I think every Melbourne family had and probably still has a lemon tree in their backyard. Easy to grow and if the position is right lemons in abundance. As a result Mum made the most of it and used lemons where ever she could. This self saucing pudding was one of her yummy ways of using some of the crop.
