    Cookgirl's Note:

    Although I have cooked with Meyer lemons, lately they've become my muse-my obsession; and I'm sorry I haven't given Meyer lemons as much attention as they deserve! I was a bit concerned because the recipe didn't indicate to use a bain-marie but the finished product didn't seem to require one. Here's a cake recipe I found recently online that uses this exquisite citrus fruit. Easy! From The question remains: Does one eat Meyer lemon pudding cake with a spoon or fork?

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 3 teaspoons finely grated meyer lemon zest
    • 3 -4 meyer lemons (do not substitute standard lemons)
    • 3/4 cup unbleached cane sugar
    • 1/4 cup unbleached flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 3 large eggs, separated
    • 1 cup whole milk, at room temperature (for best flavor use whole milk or a combination of milk, half and half and or or heavy cream for ext)
    • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly

    Garnish (optional)


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
    2. 2
      Butter an 8-inch square baking pan.
    3. 3
      Finely grate 3 teaspoons zest then squeeze 1/3 cup juice from the lemons; set aside.
    4. 4
      In a mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients.
    5. 5
      In another bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, milk, butter, Meyer lemon zest and juice; add this mixture to the dry ingredients and combine.
    6. 6
      In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until (soft peaks) form.
    7. 7
      Start by stirring one third of the egg whites into the batter to lighten, gently fold in the the remaining egg whites. Note: the batter will be thin.
    8. 8
      Pour the batter into buttered baking pan and bake until golden 35-40 minutes.
    9. 9
      Serve warm or at room temperature.
    10. 10
      If desired, garnish the top of each serving with a dollop of real whipped cream and/or a few strands of zest and a whole mint leaf or lemon verbena leaf.
    11. 11
      Note: The consistency of this dessert is more pudding-like than cake-like. It will firm up slightly once it cools. I discovered it's best to let the cake sit for about 10-15 minutes after removing from the oven. Before serving, take a wet knife and run it around the edges of the pan to gently loosen the cake.
