Lemon Meringue Cake – Citron & Maräng Kaka

IMG_6113

Lemon and meringue is an unbeatable combo. I am not sure if I’ve ever met anyone who actually doesn’t like lemon and meringue. I have made pies before, but (as some of you know) I am not a big fan of pies. I actually made this cake from a lemon-muffin recipe, baked it in a spring form and then, with help of an icing bag, applied the meringue and baked it again to cook the meringue slightly. Result turned out very pretty, and the cake is perfect for a summer day.

0.25 cups + 1 tbsp of sugar / 0,6 dl + 1 msk socker
