Easy to make and a nice light refreshing dessert. A must for lemon lovers like me!


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine sugar, flour and salt.
  2. Stir in lemon juice, zest, beaten egg yolks, butter and milk.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry; fold into lemon mixture.
  4. Pour into buttered 6 cup casserole dish.
  5. Place this casserole INSIDE a large pan (I use a 9x13 pan); pour hot water into the 9x13 pan to a depth of about 1 inch.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until the topping is set and golden brown.
  7. **During baking this separates into a cake-like topping with a lemon sauce beneath.

Tart, tangy, sweet and light! This was a breeze to make. I refrigerated this overnight covered with foil and it was delicious! I loved the nice pudding on the bottom and the light, airy cake on top. I am a huge fan of lemon, so this is a definite keeper. Thank you!
