Apricots meringue pudding

I wanna make something with the apricots, I made tons of marmalate (and give to all people that coming home) (My mom said is OK please dont give more(lol)

But my friend Betsy asked me by the apricots tree and I taked some pictures.
This post is dedicated to Betsy...
The apricots  time is so short, one day are not mature and the following is ready:)
So you have to make something.
So I find this nice and yummy recipe in my little book desserts(200 dessert recipes, Sara Lewis, Londres,Ed.Blume)  I have and was  delicious  !!

The trees... Betsy

We have three apricots three, but this year we  dont have lots of apricots but I think was enough:)

Whate more I enjoy them are fresh and in jam.

But you can make this pudding with apricots tin (if you are in winter) and make again in summer.....

The recipe

Ingredients ( 6 to 8 servings)

600 ml whole milk
grated peel of 2 lemons
200 grs, sugar or splenda
50grs butter unsalted
200 grs.fresh breadcrumbs
5 eggs separated
yolks in the pudding and whites to the merengue
6 tablespoon of apricots jam
 (If you use splenda a not sugar  jam)
200 grs. fresh apricots or  a apricots tin


In a saucepan, pour the milk, add the grated lemon peel and bring to a boil, remove from heat and add the butter and 70 grs.sugar or other  until the butter has melted and sugar dissolves.

Add the breadcrumbs and let stand about 20 minutes.

Then add the egg yolks one by one, to then pour the mixture into an elongated square pan and buttered.

Preheat oven to 180 ° C and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until curd mixture and gilded edges.

Cool slightly and spread the apricot jam and clotted cream on, then leave the apricots into quarters (either fresh or jar)

Besides beating the egg whites firm with a pinch of salt and add little by little the 130 grs. sugar until the mixture is firm and shiny.

Spread this mixture over the pudding and carry oven to brown for about 15 or 20 minutes.

Cool slightly before serving.



Budín de damascos con merengue

Quería hacer algo con los damascos aparte de mermelada, cada temporada hago alguna receta especial como tartas o helados o postres aprovechando la temporada que es muy corta, un día aún no estan maduros y de repente maduran absolutamente todos.
Y si no los aprovechas  se pierden.
Además mi amiga Betsy quería ver fotos de los arboles con damascos así que hice todo en uno.
Encontré este postre en un libro que tengo se llama: "200 recetas de postres de Sara Lewis, ed, Blume
Y fue delicioso asi que vamos a la receta:


600 ml de leche entera
cáscara rallada de 2 limones
50 grs. de mantequilla sin sal
200 grs, de azúcar
200 grs. de pan fresco desmenuzado
4 huevos separados las claras de las yemas
6 cucharadas de mermelada de damasco
Si usan splenda pueden usar mermelada Diet de damasco
200 grs. de damascos frescos o en tarro
cortados en cuartos


Verter la leche en una olla , añadir la cáscara de limón  y llevar a ebullición. Sacar del fuego y añadir la mantequilla y 70 grs, de azúcar hasta que la mantequilla se haya derretido y el azúcar disuelto.
Añadir el pan desmenuzado y dejar reposar 20 minutos.
Aparte enmantequillar una fuente alargada , precalentar el horno y hornear alrededor de 20 a 25 minutos.
hasta que la crema haya cuajado.
Untar con la mermelada sobre la crema y sobre la mermelada repartir los damascos en cuartos.
Luego batir las claras con una pizca de sal, ahasta que esten firmes agregar el resto de azúcar hasta que la mezcla esté brillante y espesa, cubrir con esto el postre y llevar a horno por unos 15 a 20 minutos hasta que esté dorado.
Dejar reposar antes de servir,
Se puede servir tibio o frio.


  1. Hi Gloria, love the heaer of blueberries. So you can bring me apricots anytime you want! I'll take what your mother doesn't want. Looks wonderful enjoy andi

  2. Thanks Andi, She think I give so mmany jams to all (lol) but she really love apricot Jam:)

    Roxana yes, but you can make with apricots tin or bookmarkedto June (lol)

  3. The photos you take always look so beautiful, the food must be delicious!

  4. The apricot trees are so pretty! My parents had two apricot trees when I was little, but they didn't have much fruit--the blossoms were beautiful though!

  5. Thanks so much rebecca when I was a chil I love apricots too:)

  6. Suena exquisito. Mi abuela hacia las Islas flotantes con damascos, por la misma razón que tu mencionas, pero eso me tinca mas.

  7. Pilar que buena idea hacer las Islas flotantes con damascos no se me habría ocurrido me acuerdo que tus abuelos tenían arboles frutales:)

  8. Wow! I'm so jealous of those trees! How beautiful..and right there in your yard! Apricot jam is my favorite. I would make lots of it, too! Funny that your mom said she has enough now. hahaha.

    Your pudding looks really delicious and beautiful, too, with that meringue! So nice, Gloria! Yum.

  9. Your meringue is perfectly golden, too. I love that!

  10. Me hiciste acordar de los árboles de casa de mis papás. Y empezaba la tanda: mermeladas por kilos, jarabe para guardar pál invierno, leche con damascos, compota, kuchenes, unas bolitas de masa rellenas con damascos, licos de damascos y así demasiado damasco en la infancia... ahora no como. Pero tus fotos están tan, pero tan tentadoras que lo probaría.

  11. WOW does that look good mmmm

  12. Thanks for doing a post for me, Gloria. You are so sweet. :) When apricots are in season up here, I am going to make this. I love meringue, too!

  13. Thanks Betsy you would enjoy this dessert because you love apricots, me too:)

  44. That looks sooo good!! You always have the yummiest recipes. Maybe I should have looked at this after dinner. ;)

  45. This pudding is awesome! The best thing is the apricot that you used can't get better as they are freshly picked from the tress.

  47. This looks like a delicious and refreshing dessert, I love appricots but mostly had the dried ones.
