Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

This is an easy one but looks good and tastes great! Makes 24.

So for the cake 

500g butter
500g sugar
500g self raising flour
8 eggs
1 lemon zest and juice

Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy then chuck in your eggs.

Beat again then slowly fold in the flour, if you beat it at this stage the cake will become stodgy.

Spoon into muffin cases and bang them in a pre heated oven at 150c, Cook for approx 15 mins.

For the meringue

Whisk 4 egg whites until stiff peaks,

Whilst that's doing, in a pan chuck 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup water.

Being this up to 104c then slowly whisk into your meringue mix. 

Pipe on top of your cooled cupcake and either return to a hot oven or if you have a blowtorch use that to colour.
