Old-Fashioned Lemon Pudding Cake


This is a recipe I made as a girl. Enjoy!

3/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup flour
Dash salt
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cups milk

In mixing bowl, sift together sugar, flour and salt. Stir in melted butter, lemon peel and juice. In glass measuring cup combine 3 egg yolks and milk. Add to lemon mixture and mix well. In another mixing bowl, beat remaining egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold into lemon batter. Pour into ungreased cake pan. Place pan in larger pan on oven rack. Pour hot water into larger pan until it is about 1 inch deep. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Cake should spring back when touched and will have a creamy lemon pudding beneath the cake. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream. Serves 6-8.
