Cooking: Lemon Delicious

Didn't make dinner last night as it was leftovers but I did make dessert. Went to the library and borrowed a few cookbooks and flipped through the desserts sections to choose what to make. Decided on something "simple", lemon delicious. Looked very nice in the picture, however mine didn't turn out right.

Ingredients: 2 Lemons(rind + juice). 3 eggs separated. 70g butter. 175g white sugar. 3 tbsp sifted plain flour. 3/4 cup milk.

Method: Cream butter, sugar and rind with a mixer until pale and creamy. Use softened butter (i used rock hard butter and it just didn't work). Add egg yolks. Then milk and flour. Continue to whisk. Pour in juice. Whisk to combine. Whisk egg whites to stiff peaks. Fold into the egg and milk mixture. Pour into a baking dish or ramekins. Bake in a bain marie for 1 hour.
Supposedly serves 8 but it only served 4 in my family XD


  1. wow these look good :) did they taste like lemon souffles?

  2. not really, didn't add enough sugar and used too much lemon juice so it was pretty sour. i think i mite avoid making these again, not my kinda dessert.
