These Lemon Meringue Cupcakes are made with a gently lemon seasoned cupcake, lemon curd filling and delicately toasted meringue icing! It resembles Lemon Meringue Pie in cupcake structure – so fun! For these cupcakes, the base begins with Moist Vanilla Cupcake. You all have been cherishing those cupcakes and I adore how clammy and simple they are to assembled. For this form of them I included some lemon get-up-and-go. It adds a light lemon flavor to the cupcakes, yet it isn't overpowering.

The main part of the lemon season in these originates from the lemon curd. In the event that you'd never made lemon curd, you need to attempt it. Natively constructed lemon curd truly is such a great amount of superior to anything the locally acquired renditions. A more grounded, progressively tart flavor. Adore it!

Making the meringue is fairly like the curd in that you likewise utilize a twofold kettle (or a similar blender bowl/pot set up). When the egg whites achieve the correct temperature, it's whipped on fast until a feathery meringue shapes. On the off chance that it appears to be scary, simply consider it like whipped cream. 🙂 Aside from warming the egg whites, the whipping of them is much the same as whipped cream. Simple, peasy!

Lemon Meringue Cupcakes - light, fluffy and moist lemon cupcake with lemon curd filling and meringue frosting on top!


  • 1 1/4 cups (163g) all purpose flour
  • 1 cup (207g) sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) milk
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) water


  • 6 tbsp (90ml) fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp finely grated lemon zest
  • ½ cup (104g) sugar
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 4 tbsp (56g) unsalted butter


  • 1 cup (207g) sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tarter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 large egg whites


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (176°C) and prepare a cupcake pan with liners.
  2. Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to a large mixer bowl and combine. Set aside.
  3. Add the milk, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, lemon zest and egg to a medium sized bowl and combine.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and beat until well combined.
  5. Slowly add the water to the batter and mix on low speed until well combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to make sure everything is well combined.
  6. Fill the cupcake liners about half way and bake for 15-17 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs.
  7. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow to cool for 2 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
  8. To make the lemon curd, combine all the ingredients in a double boiler (or in a metal bowl over a pot of simmering water). Heat while whisking constantly until mixture thickens and reaches 160 degrees, or coats the back of a spoon.
  9. Pour the lemon curd into a small bowl and cover with clear wrap pressed against the top of the curd to prevent a film from forming. Refrigerate until completely cool and firm, 3-4 hours.
  10. When you are ready to build the cupcakes, make the meringue frosting. To make the meringue, combine the sugar, cream of tartar, vanilla extract and egg whites in a large mixer bowl. Place the bowl over a saucepan or pot of simmering water. You can also use a double boiler.
  11. Whisk constantly until sugar is dissolved and egg whites are warm, to between 120 and 140 degrees on a thermometer, about 4-6 minutes. Remove from heat.
  12. Using the whisk attachment, beat the egg white mixture on low speed, gradually increasing to high, until stiff, glossy peaks form, 5 to 7 minutes.
  13. To put the cupcakes together, use a cupcake corer (or a knife) to cut a hole in the center of the cupcakes.
  14. Fill the center of the cupcake with lemon curd.
  15. Frost the cupcakes with the meringue frosting. I use Ateco tip 808.
  16. Finish off the cupcakes with a slice of lemon, if you like, then toast lightly with a kitchen torch.
  17. 1Refrigerate cupcakes until ready to serve.
