Moist, delicate, and refreshing, this magnificent dessert separates into a mouth-watering lemon sauce on the bottom and a soufflé-like cake on top. It’s the perfect blend of soft and smooth.
Lemon Pudding Cakes


  1. ¼ cup (½-stick) Challenge European Style Butter, melted
  2. 4 eggs, separated
  3. 2 teaspoons grated fresh lemon zest*
  4. 6 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  5. 1 cup sugar
  6. ¼ cup all purpose flour
  7. ¼ teaspoon salt
  8. 1¼ cups milk


  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350°F.

  2. Step 2

    Use approximately 1 Tablespoon of the melted butter to brush the inside of six, 8-ounce ramekins; set aside. (Let the remaining butter cool slightly.)

  3. Step 3

    In a large bowl, beat together butter, egg yolks, lemon juice and lemon zest. In a small bowl, combine sugar, flour and salt: add alternately with the milk to the egg mixture.

  4. Step 4

    In a separate large bowl, beat egg whites until firm peaks form. Fold egg whites into lemon mixture.

  5. Step 5

    Pour batter into the prepared ramekins and set the ramekins in a large baking dish. Pour hot water into the baking dish to a level about halfway up the side of the ramekins. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Serve the cakes warm or chilled. Garnish with berries or a dusting of powdered sugar.

Note: *2 medium lemons are needed for zest and juice.
