Mothers Day Special - Lemon Delicious

Continuing with our Mothers Day celebration!

Annie from Sydney shares her mums 'Lemon Delicious' recipe.  Annie is originally from New Zealand and her mum Bernadette still lives in Auckland.  One of the nicest things to do when your family is far away is to share a food memory and bring back the wonderful days when you were all together!

Annie writes:
I bet my Mum would say she wasn't a great cook, or that at best she doesn't really like cooking, but for all that she protests, my memory of growing up is full of delicious puddings on cold winter nights ... and this is one of my ABSOLUTE favourites.  Generally served as the six of us sat around in the living room with a roaring fire, watching The Princess Bride for the 75th time.  Love you Mum!

Lemon Delicious
[Serves 6]


  • 125 grams melted butter, cooled
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 330 grams caster sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 75 grams self-raising flour, sifted
  • 80mls lemon juice
  • 330mls milk
  • 3 egg whites

Pour the butter into a bowl and stir in the lemon zest followed by the sugar. Once incorporated, stir in the egg yolks.

Sprinkle over the sifted flour and lemon juice and stir until combined. Slowly add the milk a little at a time to ensure you get a smooth batter - the mixture will be quite runny so don't be alarmed.

In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form. Slacken the batter with a spoonful of egg white and then fold in the rest.

Pour the mixture evenly into a  large baking dish.

Place the dishes on a baking tray and pour in enough water so that it comes halfway up the sides.

Bake in a preheated 180°C/350°F for about 35 - 45 minutes, depending on the size of the dishes used. The surface should be golden brown and puffed and beginning to pull away from the sides of the dish.

Thanks so much Annie for sharing your mums Lemon Delicious!  Hooray for Mums! :)

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz,
