Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk sugar, flour, and salt together in a bowl; stir in milk, lemon juice, egg yolks, and lemon zest until smooth.
  3. Beat egg whites in a glass or metal bowl until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form sharp peaks. Fold egg whites into flour mixture; pour into a 1-quart baking dish.
  4. Set baking dish in a baking pan. Pour water into baking pan to make a 1-inch deep water bath around baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until set in the middle, about 50 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

As this recipe's first reviewer, I'm happy to give it an enthusiastic "two thumbs up." This recipe for the classic "Lemon Pudding Cake," which I first made decades ago, is very basic and very reliable. It bakes into a delicately lemon flavored cake layer on top to reveal custardy goodness beneath it. Since this includes no butter, I went with reduced fat milk rather than skim but made no other changes. I think the baking time, at 50 minutes, is far too long, tho' admittedly individual ovens may vary. I would recommend the more traditional baking time of 25-35 minutes (and even less for ramekins). You can always add more time, but you can't undo it if you bake it too long! I might also suggest that the water used for the water bath be very hot, if not boiling.
