Monday Inspiration - Lemon Meringue Cup Cakes

I love all things lemony! Lemon drizzle cake, lemon tart, sherbet lemons (even though they cut my mouth), lemon possett, the list is endless!   I saw a recipe for lemon meringue cupcakes in my Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook and couldn't wait to try it out. 
The buns were easy to make, the recipe states it makes 12-16 but it made 20.

The meringue involved getting the sugar to the soft ball stage - time to use my jam thermometer.

Adding the boiling sugar to the frothy egg whites and then whisking until glossy and voluminous!

Scooping out a bit of the cupcake and adding lemoncurd. Then putting the meringue on top and blasting with a cooks blow torch!  

I would make this recipe again - maybe halving the quantities - especially as it means I get to use my cooks blow torch!!!

Next week there is a special blog post as it's going to be by Minibakebakegirl.
