Makes 12 cupcakes

In the event that I was compelled to pick my preferred pie (and kindly don’t make me single out only one!), it may be lemon meringue. Propelled by a cake I saw at Tartine Bakery in San Francisco, and a hitter from my companion Elinor Klivan’s book Cupcakes, I have made a citrus cupcake with a tart lemon filling and a whirl of delicate meringue on top. Presently I have a most loved cupcake to help me to remember my adored pie.


  • 1¼ cups universally handy flour
  • ½ teaspoon heating powder
  • ¼ teaspoon heating soft drink
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted margarine, at room temperature
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • Ground pizzazz of 1 lemon
  • 2 enormous eggs, beaten, at room temperature
  • ½ cup harsh cream, at room temperature


  • ¹/3 cup in addition to 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2½ teaspoons cornstarch
  • ½ cup crisp lemon juice
  • A squeeze of fine ocean salt
  • 1 enormous egg in addition to 2 huge egg yolks (spare the whites for the meringue)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted margarine, meagerly cut
  • Ground pizzazz of 1 lemon
In the event that I was compelled to pick my preferred pie


  • 4 enormous egg whites, at room temperature
  • ½ cup of sugar
  1. Position a rack in the focal point of the broiler and preheat to 350°F. Line 12 cups in a biscuit container with paper cupcake liners.
  2. To cause the cupcakes, to filter the flour, heating powder, preparing the soft drink, and salt together in a medium bowl. Beat the spread in another medium bowl with an electric blender set on fast until smooth, around 1 minute. Bit by bit beat in the sugar and after that include the lemon get-up-and-go. Beat until the blend is light in shading and surface, around 3 minutes. Bit by bit beat in the eggs. Decrease the speed to low. In equal parts, rotating with equivalent measures of the harsh cream, include the flour blend, beating admirably after every expansion and scratching down the sides of the bowl as required. Utilizing a frozen yogurt scoop with about ½ cup limit, move the player to the cups, filling each cup around three fourths full.
  3. Heat until the cupcakes are brilliant dark-colored and spring back when contacted delicately on top, 20 to 25 minutes. Give cool access the container on a wire cake rack for 10 minutes. Evacuate the cupcakes in their liners from the skillet and let cool totally on the rack.
  4. To make the filling, whisk the sugar and cornstarch together in an overwhelming bottomed little pot. Rush in the lemon squeeze and salt, at that point the egg and the egg yolks, and whisk well. Bring to a stew over medium-low warmth, whisking frequently. Diminish the warmth to low and let bubble for 30 minutes. Strain through a medium-work sifter into a little bowl. Include the margarine and lemon get-up-and-go and mix until the spread melts. Press saran wraps straightforwardly on the outside of the filling and punctures a couple of gaps in the plastic. Let cool totally.
  5. Utilizing a little, sharp blade held at a slanting, cut a rearranged cone, with a base about 1½ inches wide, from the focal point of every cupcake. Dispose of the cones or hold them as the bread cook’s treat. Move the filling to a 1-quart plastic stockpiling sack. Power the filling into one corner of the sack. Cut off the side of the pack. Pipe an equivalent measure of the filling into the gap in every cupcake. Spot the cupcakes on a preparing sheet.
  6. To cause the meringue, to preheat the broiler to 375°F. Utilizing clean mixers, beat the egg whites in a medium bowl with an electric blender on fast until delicate pinnacles structure. Bit by bit beat in the sugar and beat until the meringue shapes hardened sparkling pinnacles. Move the meringue to a baked good pack fitted with a ½-inch French star tip, for example, Ateco #865. (Any star tip will do, however, a French tip gives the meringue a particularly exact look.)
  7. Pipe swirls of the meringue over the highest point of every cupcake, being certain that the filling is totally secured. Prepare just until the meringue is tipped with dark dark-colored, around 5 minutes. Let cool totally. The cupcakes are best served the day they are made.
