Cupcapers - Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

The title to this post should have read 'Cupcapers - Hummingbird Bakery Lemon Meringue Cupcakes, but I was tired and the recipe called for concentration so I decided to make a version that I came up with a couple of years ago and therefore required no real thought on my part.

The recipe comprises of a lemon sponge which once baked into cupcakes is hollowed out with some lemon curd dropped into the craters and a meringue mix smeared onto the top of each cupcake which is then grilled for a couple of minutes to brown off the meringue
Love the light and fluffy meringue with the surprise sharpness of the lemon curd
Surely too nice to be naughty?!


  1. They look amazing! Fancy sharing your recipe? ;-)

  2. Thanks! X

    Lakota, tres simple, just a bog standard three egg sponge recipe with some lemon zest added, bake into cupcakes, hollow out and dollop in some shop-bought lemon curd, then whisk some egg whites until they form soft peaks, add some caster sugar and whisk until glossy and stiffish then smear on top of the cakes and grill until the meringue is brown. If you want proper measures and stuff let me know. x


A penny for your thoughts
