  • 1 1/4 cups Caster Sugar
  • 3 1/2 tbsp Plain Flour

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees and butter a baking dish of about 20cm square.
  2. In a bowl, beat together the egg yolks, lemon juice, lemon zest and softened butter until nice and thick.
  3. In another bowl, combine the sugar, flour and salt. Add this mixture alternatively with the milk to the smooth yolk mix until it is well combined, beating after each addition.
