    blucoat's Note:

    This is a really neat recipe because, as the batter bakes, it separates into two distinctive layers — cake on top and custard on the bottom. It looks very impressive, guests will have no idea how simple it is to prepare! This custard/cake has a very bold lemony flavour. (It also works well with Splenda so can be modified for diabetics.) If you don't have individual ramekins, this can be made in a deep pie pan or an 8x8 baking pan. Margaret Atwood is an iconic Canadian author and the recipe was published in Bon Appétit (Jan. 2006).

      This is an excellent recipe. Light and refreshing with a pleasingly bold lemon flavour. I've made it twice now and will make it many more times!
