  • 1 ½ cups filtered water

  • ¼ cup butter - softened
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¼ tsp salt

  15. Pour batter into buttered ramekins so they are about half full

  17. Allow the puddings to cool for at about 10 - 15 minutes before serving

Heavy Cream Yogurt Topping
