I am a (German) subscriber of UK’s Nr. 1 Food Magazine the Good Food Magazine. On page 15 the St. George’s Day is actually mentioned, but there are no special dishes published for this day. I can’t remember that I ever heard of St. George’s Day at school, so I am glad that this knowledge gap is closed.

I am not very familar with English desserts or puddings, but in this magazine sometimes cakes are suggested as a dessert.

So I prepared

Lakeland Lemon Cake

Delicious ! And: I like the English food.

Beat the eggs lightly and mix in lemon rind and juice, butter, and
sugar. Place in the top of a double boiler (a bowl over hot water
also works well) and heat gently, stirring occasionally until the
sugar has dissolved and the curd thickens. Pour into small
sterilized jars and cover with sterilized lids. Stores well in
refrigerator for up to 3 months.
