Ingredients

  • 2 2 egg yolkegg yolks
  • 7 oz. (45 cup) 200 g (200 ml) mascarpone cheese
  • 3½ oz. (23 cup) 100 g (160 ml) fresh blueberries
This recipe has been added to the shopping list.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C).
  2. Separate the eggs into yolks and whites. Only the yolks are needed for this recipe. You can save the whites for another recipe if you wish.
  3. Mix the egg yolks with the mascarpone, and stir in the blueberries.
  4. Spoon the mixture into (6 oz., 180 ml) ramekins, or small, ovenproof dishes. Bake on the middle rack for 15 - 20 minutes, or until semi-firm, and lightly browned (See tip).
  5. Let cool slightly, before serving. This dish can also be prepared in advance and served cold.

Tips

Baking times will vary, depending upon the size of the baking dishes.

If you prefer your dessert a little sweeter, you can add xylitol or erythritol.

You could also add some vanilla, a pinch of salt, and/or lemon zest for more flavor.

Feel free to replace the blueberries with another low-carb berry such as strawberries, or raspberries.

    That looks yummy! I just got blueberries the other day but I don’t have any mascarpone. Told myself I wasn’t shopping till there’s more fridge and freezer space! Any way, would sour cream work instead of mascarpone?

    This was really very nice. I did find that I had to cook it for longer and at higher temperature than the recipe called for, but my oven is not the hottest and I had doubled the recipe and put it in one dish. I also added some zest of lemon as suggested in the recipe Tips section and would recommend doing that, made it extra special.

    I made these on the spur of the moment after I saw a post, luckily had the ingredients in. They were quick to make & we loved them!
    just satisfied a little dessert desire after dinner! I cooked them in silicone muffin cases as I had no ramekins handy & got six muffin size out of the recipe for two people, we will be doing these as a regular I can see them being a firm favourite in our house! Thanks guys!

    This is my 2nd time making this but adding a little local honey and no blueberries - leaving it to cool so it's a cold pudding, rather than hot. Love this pudding it's great!

    So glad you love it! Just a heads up that we recommend avoiding honey, as it's pure sugar. Here's our sweetener guide for more info! https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/sweeteners

    Been looking forward to this ever since I saw the recipe. So disappointed that it was watery/greasy. Baked for longer (as per suggestions) but was not impressed. Any ideas for firming up or drying it up?

    I'm sorry this didn't turn out as expected. You may wish to try a different brand of mascarpone cheese as it's the only ingredient that could lead to a watery or greasy result.
