Lemon Souffle Cake

Several years ago I acquired this recipe from a magazine called Traditional Home. I made this and it was delightful!  The recipe came from a grouping called Girlfriends Lunch Recipes...which included Caviar Sunflower and Shrimp & Scalops in Puff Pastry Shells!  Since I love things made with lemon I naturally had to try this recipe!
The woman who shared it called it:

GRANDMOTHER'S LEMON SOUFFLE CAKE

3       T butter, softened
1       C sugar
4       Egg yolks
2       t  finely shredded lemon peel
1/3   C lemon juice
2       T all purpose flour
1/4    t  salt
1       C milk
4       Egg whites

   Sweetened Whipped Cream
   Lemon slices, fresh mint springs
