  • About


  • 4 large free-range eggs, separated
  • 175 g (6 oz) golden caster sugar


Beat the egg yolks and sugar until pale and creamy. Add the lemon juice, zest, butter and a quarter of the flour, mixing well. Fold in the rest of the flour, then the stiffly whisked egg whites. Spoon into a greased, floured loaf tin and bake for about 30 minutes at 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4, or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
