Servings 6


  • 150 g butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons lemon rind, finely grated
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¾ cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon French Earl Grey Tea, ground
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • Icing sugar, ice cream and raspberries, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Grease an oven proof dish (I used two enamel dishes but I’ve also made this in 6 x 1 cup ramekins).
  2. Place butter, lemon rind, lemon juice, sugar, flour, milk, ground tea and egg yolks in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
  3. In a separate small bowl, beat egg whites using an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Fold a quarter of the egg white in to the lemon mixture until combined. Gently fold in remaining egg white.
  4. Spoon mixture into prepared dishes. Place dishes in a large baking tray and pour boiling water carefully into the baking dish until halfway up the sides of the smaller dish. (I open the oven, put the baking tray onto the oven rack and then pour the boiling water in to avoid having to carry a heavy tray filled with hot water).
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and just set. Serve warm with cream or ice cream, raspberries and a dusting of icing sugar.
