The Best Lemon Dessert Ever


If you are in the mood for lemon, this is the best dessert to serve on a cold winter's day.  It is served warm from the oven.  The top crust gives way to a fragrant lemon pudding in the center of the cakes.

These cakes are extremely easy to make.  Some days they are even better than chocolate!





Lemon Pudding Cakes

3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 Tablespoons butter, melted
2 egg yolks
3 egg whites

Beat 3 egg whites stiff while gradually adding 1/4 cup sugar.

In a separate bowl whisk together the sugar, milk, lemon juice, butter and 2 egg yolks.  Gently whisk in the flour and salt.

Gradually stir in the beaten egg whites.

Pour the mixture into 5 ramekins (4-6 oz)

Place the ramekins in a roasting pan and pour boiling water into the pan.  The water should fill the pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Serve warm.  Dust with powdered sugar before serving.

Enjoy!
