Preparation meringue cupcakes with lemon curd filling
Total Time: 1h20
Preparation: 1 h
Cooking time: 20 min
Making the cupcakes:
Preheat the oven to 180°C (gas mark 6).
In a bowl, mix the softened butter (especially not melted!) with the sugar, then add the eggs, flour and baking powder.
Then add the zest and juice of the lemons to the dough.
Divide into 12 small moulds 7 cm in diameter and 3 or 4 cm high, then bake for 20 minutes at 180°C (gas mark 6).
Preparation of the Lemon Curd :
Put all the ingredients in a glass bowl and mix. Place the bowl on a pan of simmering water without the bottom of the bowl touching the water, and stir until the sugar melts.
Continue cooking over low heat, stirring constantly: it may take 20 minutes (but the result is delicious)!
The cream is ready when it coats the back of the spoon (it should be relatively thick).
Caution: the cream must not boil, otherwise the eggs will turn into scrambled eggs.
Let it cool down and then fill the cupcakes from which you will have removed the cap and dug the equivalent of a small spoon.
Preparation of the Meringue :
Mix the egg white and sugar in a bowl and put in a bain-marie.
Whisk by hand for a few minutes until the sugar is dissolved and then remove from the water bath.
Beat with an electric whisk at medium speed for 10 minutes.
Add the lemon juice and beat at high speed until the mixture forms peaks that hold when you remove the whisk.
Spread over the cupcakes and brown with a torch.
Decorate as you like!
