Pudding Cake with Lemon Filling

It's so funny how we relate to food and our past memories of it and good times. We always had this for special occasion's, birthdays etc.  As we grow older and reflect on yesteryear, we realize the simple things are best in life sometimes and we cherish those memories forever.  Life goes by so fast, then one day you think wow that was a long time ago and smile. We can always go back in time with food, the memories last a lifetime, the food will give you the warmth and comfort of childhood.
This one was in mine.

3 eggs separated
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
zest of 1 lemon
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup sugar
Grease a round 8 inch round pan or greased 8 inch square pan ( you can also make them individual size in small round ramekins dishes as pictured)

Beat egg whites with 1/4 cup sugar until soft peaks  are formed. In a separate bowl, add all wet ingredients and then fold in with dry ingredient and whisk together gently.  Carefully fold in the egg whites. Pour into your prepared pan or pans. Place the pan or individual pans into a water bath, ( using a large aluminum pan like a turkey roaster filled with water around two inches) Bake in a 350 degree hot preheated oven around 35 to 45 minutes. Dust with powder sugar or serve with whipped cream. Serve warm ..  Sprinkle with powdered sugar .
