This is a yummy winter dessert. My all time favourite. The mix magically seperates during cooking, leaving a light fluffy pudding with sweet tangy sauce! I guarantee you'll make it again and again. All measurements are in metric.


  1. Place egg yolks in a large bowl.
  2. Add sugar and stir till smooth.
  3. Add melted butter, flour and lemon rind, then stir in juice and milk.
  4. Beat egg whites until soft peaks.
  5. Gently fold into yolk mix.
  6. Pour mixture into a well greased, deep oven proof dish.
  7. (I use a souffle dish!) Bake 170 degrees celcius for 40-50 minutes.

This was so delicious and lemony. It says 4 servings but we pigged out and finished it between the two of us! The only thing was it didn't really have a separate sauce the way I thought it would. It was more just really soft and only slightly runny at the bottom. The flavour of this is so divine though that it deserves 5 stars. It tastes a bit like lemon meringue pie. I'll be making this often.

When it starts getting colder we have one night a week where we have a nice hot soup, and on those nights is when I make a dessert as well. This is what we had last night after Izzy's Potato Cheese Soup (which is delicious). This dessert is really yummy, the bottom is like a fine lemon custard, and the top is similar to angel cake sponge. Really liked this. Thanks for posting. =)

What a great recipe!:) Very easy to make and I just loved the flavor. I left the lemon zest out(not something a usually have on hand) but it still tasted wonderful.
