  • 3 fresh lemons
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt


Prep your ingredients: Zest and juice the lemons, separate the egg yolks from the whites, and preheat your oven to 350°F.

Make the custard: In a saucepan, whisk together 4 egg yolks, 3/4 cup sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, 1/4 cup flour, and 2 cups milk until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens into a custard-like consistency. Remove from heat and stir in the 1/2 cup butter until melted. Set aside to cool slightly.

Make the cake batter: In a separate bowl, beat 4 egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the custard mixture until fully combined. In another bowl, whisk together the 3/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the custard mixture, stirring until just combined.

Bake: Pour the batter into a greased baking dish and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and set.

Serve and enjoy: Allow the cake to cool slightly before slicing and serving. Garnish with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and a slice of lemon, if desired. Serve it up with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the ultimate indulgence!
