1. Soak the sake lees in milk. Preheat the oven to 160°C.

3. Once it is no longer powdery, add the lemon juice and mix. Pour into pudding cups and bake at 160°C for 30 minutes.
4. Once baked, let cool in the cups.
5. I tried mixing in some stewed apples before baking. I adjusted the amount of milk and sugar to accommodate the apples.
