How to Make It

1. Step
Preheat the oven to 325ºF (170ºC).
2. Step
In a medium bowl, cream the butter and slowly add the sugar. Beat until light and fluffy.
3. Step
Add the eggs one at a time, mixing until incorporated.
4. Step
Sift the flour and baking powder into the sugar mixture. Add salt and mix until just combined.
5. Step
Add the vanilla, milk, and lemon juice, and mix until incorporated.
6. Step
Scoop mixture into a lined cupcake tin about ¾ full.
7. Step
Bake 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out cleanly from the center of the cupcakes. Let cupcakes cool.
8. Step
Prepare the lemon curd by whisking the yolks and sugar in a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water.
9. Step
Once the sugar is dissolved, add the lemon juice and zest. Stir until the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes.
10. Step
Once the curd coats the back of a spoon, add the butter and stir until melted.
11. Step
Remove from the heat, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate. Make sure the cling film touches the surface of the curd so that a film doesn’t form on top.
12. Step
Prepare the frosting by whisking the egg whites and sugar in a heatproof bowl over simmering water until it thickens and the sugar dissolves completely. Tempering the eggs will ensure the frosting is food safe without being baked.
13. Step
Remove from the heat, add the cream of tartar, and beat about 10 minutes until soft peaks form.
14. Step
Using a piping tip or a knife, cut a hole into the top of the cupcakes and press down to make a well for the curd.
15. Step
Add lemon curd into the cupcakes and frost them with the meringue.
16. Step
Torch the frosting or carefully broil for about 3 to 4 minutes. Be sure that you use foil cupcake liners if broiling!
17. Step
Enjoy!
