  • ¾ cup gluten free flour blend
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • cup sugar
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 5 tablespoons lemon juice
  • dash salt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, add sugar and flour and whisk to blend.
  • In a medium sized bowl, whisk egg yolks with the butter.
  • In a medium sized bowl, add milk, sour cream, lemon juice and zest. Whisk.
  • Pour the lemon mixture into the egg yolk mixture and whisk.
  • In another medium sized bowl, add egg whites. Mix on high speed until they form stiff white peaks. Gently fold this into the lemon mixture.
  • Spray ramekins with coconut oil. Pour batter into each ramekin.
  • Fill a baking dish with hot water about 1 inch deep. This will prevent the cakes from cracking. Add the ramekins to this dish.
  • Bake for 30 minutes and check them. Mine cooked in 30 minutes but readers who have used different gluten free flour blends have needed to cook these a little longer. When done, remove carefully from the oven so you don't spill the hot water.
  • Cool then dust with powdered sugar, or top with fruit.


To tell if these are finished baking, stick a toothpick into one of the cakes. If the toothpick comes out clean, they are done baking. If your toothpick has batter or crumbs on it, it will need to bake a little longer.
