Something magical happens when this cake goes in the oven. The top turns into this wonderfully light, fluffy, and moist cake, while the bottom pools into a warm lemon pudding. The whole thing tastes incredibly comforting, but light.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Whisk together the flour, salt, and 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons of sugar in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, milk, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Add the wet mixture into the flour mixture and whisk to just combine.
Beat the egg whites in another large bowl (beat with an electric mixer until they hold soft peaks). Add in the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar, a little at a time, and continue to beat until the whites hold stiff peaks.
Whisk a quarter of the whites into the batter until combined; then fold in the remaining until well incorporated.
Pour the batter into a buttered 1 1/2-quart baking dish and bake in a hot water bath* until puffed and golden, 45-50 minutes.
Dust with powdered sugar and serve warm or at room temperature.
* To set up the water bath, place the dish casserole with the batter inside of a larger pan (a roasting pan works well for this). Fill the large pan with hot water until it reaches the top of the batter in the smaller pan, being sure to not get any water in the batter.

This dish is so easy to make and, in comparison to its traditional cousin, can be made as low fat as you desire (using fat free Cool Whip and sugar free pudding mix). The molasses cookies add a spiciness not often found in a traditional pie crust. If you don’t like the flavor of molasses, you could always substitute ginger snaps, but the soft molasses cookies are a delicious addition.
