I’ve been feeling super inspired since I found out about winning that super amazing bursary from Capsicum Culinary Studio! I literally just want to bake all day! And you no what, I think I actually will do that! I’m starting with making another one of my favourites…Zesty Lemon Meringue. I made this beautifully delicious Lemon Meringue for a little Instagram campaign I did for Le Creuset, and Oh My Goodness was it delicious!! I have always been a big lemon meringue addict, even as a kid…which is probably a little strange because most kids like things sweeter rather than sour. But I was always the kid buying the most sour candies I could find!
That’s the thing I love about this particular Zesty Lemon Meringue recipe. It’s actually sour! Not unbearably sour, but it has a bit of a kick, just like a Lemon Meringue should have. It isn’t rich at all, it’s not overly sweet like most lemon meringues are, it is simply perfect. It has a perfect balance between sweet and sour. The lemon filling is deliciously tangy and sour, and then the crunchy meringues on top are the sweetness that balances out the sour. YUM!
When you craving something other than Chocolate Mousse, Ice-Cream or something peanut buttery, then Lemon Meringue is pretty much the most perfect dessert. It works for all seasons, it’s light and fresh for summer but at the same time, perfectly decadent for winter. Unlike most lemon meringue recipes, this Zesty Lemon Meringue is pretty darn easy to make. You only have to bake the crust, it doesn’t contain any condensed milk and really keeps well. So you can make a Zesty Lemon Meringue all for yourself and not worry about it going off ;). Who doesn’t want a whole lemon meringue to themselves right?
