Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 6


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 1 lemon, grated rind and juice
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, cream butter.
  • Add sugar, flour salt, lemon juice and rind.
  • In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks; stir in milk. Slowly add second mixture to first mixture.
  • Beat egg whites until stiff; gently fold into mixture.
  • Pour into ramekins or individual souffle dishes and place in pan of hot water. Bake in "moderate" oven (350, in my case) for 45 minutes. You will have a layer of lemon custard, with gorgeous, lightly browned sponge on top. Let cool a bit.
  • Turn out and serve with whipped cream, or serve still in the dish.
