Cook's Notes

Take It Easy: Stir up a citrusy batter in advance, then fold in stiff egg whites and bake when it's time for dessert. <p> Kitchen Tip: Baking the cakes in a water bath creates an even, gentle cooking environment, resulting in a moist, silky texture.

    I loved this recipe. I've made it several times now. It makes the MOST delicate cake! and the pudding on the bottom is so great. If you call it self-saucing pudding in the States, that alone will make it conversation worthy! Made the recipe exactly as stated and it's elegant, beautiful and you get 2-for-1 batter!

    Just made this (as well as the chocolate, 4 ingredient pudding cake) last night for 30 guys: BIG hit! And SO easy. Wonderful, delicate, perfect tartness! The chocolate was equally delicious, but my personal fave was the lemon. Ask me tomorrow though, and it may be the chocolate. Also, I used whole milk, but plan to try it with a lighter version next time. Try these won't be disappointed!

    This was amazing. As each person (kids included) ate their first bite, they looked at me and grinned (in a good way!) A do- again!

    Best lemony souffle-like cakes! Made this EDF meal for friends-and they raved about the dessert. Very easy to make. Made batter 3 hrs ahead (max) and whipped whites while guests talked. Huge hit!
