These delicate cakes are a different take on the classic lemon meringue pie. A moist cake is the base in place of the traditional pie crust. A sweet and tart lemon curd is then spooned on top of the mini cakes with the addition of a light and airy meringue to finish it off. Lightly toasting the meringue adds an extra bit of rich flavor. These mini cakes are perfect for celebrating a birthday or other special occasion.

Ingredients

  • 125 grams butter (soft)
  • 175 grams brown sugar
  • 175 grams flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 120 milliliters milk
  • lemon curd (if you do not find it in the fine foods section of your supermarket, make the cream for a lemon meringue pie and use the surplus as a spread)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 100 grams white sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Pour the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, milk, and eggs into a bowl and beat with an electric mixer for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Pour the mixture into baking cups and bake for 15-20 minutes (depending on cup size), the blade of a knife should come out clean.
  4. Once the cakes cool, carve them out with a small sharp knife.
  5. Fill them with lemon curd using a teaspoon.
  6. Beat the egg whites until stiff; when they have almost peaked, add sugar gradually.
  7. Put this meringue into a pastry bag and squeeze out pretty rosettes on top of each cupcake.
  8. Brown the cupcakes in the broiler for a few seconds.

These were perfect for a friends birthday party. They taste just like mini lemon meringue pies! To get the curd in the cakes I used an apple corer to make a small hollow and then filled it with curd from a pastry bag.
