Preparation steps


Butter six 250 ml  (approximately 8 ounces) pudding molds and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. In a bowl, stir together the cornmeal, whole wheat flour and almonds. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in the lemon zest and juice, vanilla sugar and add 1 pinch of salt. Separate the eggs. One at a time, add the yolks to the butter mixture, beating well after each addition. Add the quark and creme fraiche. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the butter mixture. Sprinkle the flour and almond mixture over and mix gently with a whisk. Bring a saucepan of water large enough to hold the pudding molds in a single layer and to come two-thirds of the way up the sides of the molds to a boil. Spoon the batter into the molds, cover each with aluminum foil and place in the water bath. Cover the pot and cook the puddings over low heat until set, about 1 1/2 hours.


Blanch the apricots in a pot of boiling water for 10 seconds. Rinse with cold water, peel and cut into quarters. Halve and remove the pits and transfer the apricots to a blender and puree. Rinse and hull the strawberries and crush with a fork (reserve some for garnish). Stir together the crushed strawberries, the apricot puree, honey and the orange liqueur and refrigerate. Lift the finished puddings from the water bath and let rest 5 minutes. Spoon the sauce onto plates, invert the puddings onto the sauce, and garnish with mint and the reserved strawberries.
