RawSpiceBar’s Grains of Paradise
4 large eggs, separated
1 tsp finely grated lemon zest
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 cups whole milk
- Place a large pan on a rack in the center of the oven. Fill the pan halfway with water. With the pan inside, heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch square or round baking dish.
- In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks, lemon zest, lemon juice, and butter. In another bowl, stir together the sugar, flour, RawSpiceBar’s Grains of Paradise and salt. Whisk half the flour mixture into the egg yolks, then half the milk. Whisk in the remaining flour mixture, then the remaining milk. Whip the egg whites until soft peaks form, then gently fold them into the batter.
- Pour the batter into the buttered dish. Place the dish in the pan of water in the oven. Bake until the cake is set, about 45 minutes.
