Serves: 6 Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, cream butter.

2

Add sugar, flour salt, lemon juice and rind.

3

In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks; stir in milk. Slowly add second mixture to first mixture.

4

Beat egg whites until stiff; gently fold into mixture.

5

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.

6

Turn out and serve with whipped cream, or serve still in the dish.
