  • Makes: Serves 8.


1 1/2 cups sugar

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

3 large eggs, separated

finely grated zest of a lemon (or two, if you like it zingy)

1/4 cup lemon juice

1 1/2 cups milk

2 Tbsp. melted butter


1Preheat the oven to 375F. In a large bowl, stir together 1 cup of the sugar, the flour, baking powder and salt.

2In a small bowl, stir together the egg yolks, lemon zest and juice, milk and butter. Add to the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined.

3In a clean glass or stainless steel bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form, gradually add the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, beating constantly until the mixture stands in stiff peaks. Gently fold into the lemon batter, and scrape into a buttered baking dish.

4Set the baking dish into a larger dish and fill halfway up the side with water. Bake for 45 minutes, until golden and springy to the touch. Serve warm or cold.
