Ingredients

  • 4 eggs separated
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter-melted and slightly cooled
  • grated zest from 2 large lemons
  • 1 ¾ cups milk-lukewarm
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • powdered sugar for dusting

Preparation

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 325°F. Then lightly grease your baking pan.

Step 2

Whip the egg whites until they form, then beat the yolks until pale yellow

Step 3

In a bowl, add melted butter and vanilla extract. Mix for 4 minutes or until evenly combined.

Step 4

Mix in flour, then add lemon juice and lemon zest then mix until combined.

Step 5

Slowly beat in the milk as you mix until fully combined.

Step 6

Add egg whites and whisk gently, ensuring a little egg white sits at the top. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 40-60 minutes

Note:  Baking time might vary depending on the oven or pan you use but start checking after 35 minutes. Do not overbake it, or the cake will turn out rubbery not custardy in the center.

Step 7

Cool the cake completely before dusting it with powdered sugar.
