#27 Lemon Meringue


These came before coconut, but are being posted after. So technically they're #26 chronologically.

These might be the best cupcakes I've ever made.

Cake
1 c. milk (soy, almond, cow)
4 tsp. lemon juice
zest of 2 lemons
1 1/4 c. flour (baking or all purpose)
3/4 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/3 c. oil
3/4 c. sugar


Preheat the oven to 350F.
Mix together the milk and the vinegar and let it sit for a minute, to curdle.
Dump everything else into the bowl, mix.
Pour into cupcake pan or cupcake liners or whatever.

Bake 20 - 22 minutes.



Filling: Lemon Curd
Recipe

Icing
Lemon juice ~2 tbsp
Lemon Zest
Shortening ~ 1/4c.
Icing sugar ~ 2c.

Meringues
120g sugar for every 2 egg whites

Beat together until super fluffy and can hold over your head upside down.
Bake at 200F for 60 odd minutes, allow to cool in the oven.

Fill cupcakes with curd, top with icing and a meringue cookie on top.
