Lemon delicious

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 6 people

  • 220 gm (1 cup) caster sugar
  • 90 gm butter, softened
  • 2 limes, finely grated rind and juice only
  • 1 lemon, finely grated rind and juice only
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 120 gm self-raising flour
  • 750 ml (3 cups) milk
  • To serve: pure icing sugar and pouring cream
01   Preheat oven to 180C. Beat sugar, butter and citrus rinds with an electric mixer until pale and fluffy, then add egg yolks, beating well after each addition. Add flour and milk alternately in batches and beat well until a smooth batter forms. Add citrus juices and beat until just combined.
02   In a separate bowl, whisk eggwhites with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form, fold one third of the eggwhites through batter to lighten, add remaining eggwhites and fold in until just combined. Divide mixture among six 1ΒΌ cup-capacity (310 ml) buttered ovenproof dishes, place in a deep roasting pan and pour in enough hot water to come halfway up sides of dishes. Bake until puffed and golden (30-35 minutes). Dust generously with icing sugar and serve immediately with cream.
