These tangy lemon desserts are baked in a hot-water bath, which helps them to stay creamy and custardy beneath their golden, cakey tops.

Cook's Notes

Baking the desserts in a hot-water bath keeps them creamy and custardy beneath their golden, cakey tops. If you do not have individual custard cups, bake the batter in an eight-inch square baking dish (or other shallow two-quart baking dish) for thirty to thirty-five minutes.

    These boys are like souffle, but with cakey top , custard bottom, absolutely yummy! do not over baked, or it will loss the silky custard beneath. sub the sugar with honey which gave it a golden brown top! will make them again.

    Light, full of flavor, easy to make. My guests adored it and asked for seconds. Next time I will double the dose. Just perfect!

    to the poster who wondered (two years ago!) about the towel - it keeps the custard cups from sliding around in the water bath. :-)

    This is the most delicious thing I've had in a long while! With every bite you drift away on a cloud of creamy, lemony felicity! I would be content eating this everyday of my life, and judging by the rapt silence that fell over my family as they took their first mouthfuls and the continuous "mmmmmm"s of approval that followed, I think they agree with me.

    Null...I've made these often and have added more zest too. Don't worry about them falling. Mine did too and I think that's because they are souffle-like. BTW Null - Did you ever get your Dec. 08 MSL issue?
