Total time: About 1 hour | Serves 4 to 6
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea or kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated Key lime zest
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed Key lime juice (about 6 limes)

Step 1Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flour, sugar and salt in a medium mixing bowl.

Step 2Beat the egg yolks in a second bowl. Add the milk, lime zest and juice and stir into the dry ingredients, mixing well to make a smooth batter.

Step 3In a clean bowl, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, gently but thoroughly fold them into the batter. Transfer to a souffle dish or 1-quart casserole. Place in a larger baking dish and pour hot water into the larger dish to a depth of about 1 inch.

Step 4Bake 50 minutes. Serve warm or cold, ladling the top and sauce onto dessert plates.
