How to make it

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • generously butter a 1 1/2 quart souffle dish or a stright sided casserole dish
  • Separate the eggs, reserving 3 of the whites in a mixing bowl and all 4 yolks in a separate mixing bowl
  • Add 1 cup of the sugar, butter and the lemon zest to the egg yolks
  • Blend them together on a mrdium-high speed until well blended
  • Then blend in the flour, followed by the lemon juice,vanilla and salt
  • Put mixer on low speed and slowly blend in the milk
  • Clean and dry the mixer's beaters and beat the egg whites on a low speed, gradually increasing speed to a medium-high speed until soft peaks hold.
  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar and continue to blend the whites until they are semi-stiff.
  • Gently fold half the whites into the batter until evenly mixed and then mix the other half in.
  • Pour batter into baking dish
  • Place dish into a shallow 13 inch by 9 inch pan
  • Carefully pour hot water into pan to a depth of about 3/4 of an inch
  • Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes until puffed and golden brown
  • If you need to check on it be careful not to open oven door all the way and to shut it very gently or the souffle could fall a little.
  • When done baking, remove from the water pan and let cool for about 15 minutes and dust with powdered sugar.
