I made this today and I was so proud of myself for the result! Ive never made it before or ever eaten it for that matter. Hubby and I both liked it (kids thought it was amazeballs) but we did think it was on the sweet side. Still delicious tho! I followed the recipe absolutely exactly and was so pleased that my meringue worked out.

I made the pastry early in the day then set it aside in the fridge.
I then milled the sugar for the meringue then set it aside as I know that would spoil.
Then I made the lemon curd and set that aside while I preheated my oven and rolled out the pastry. I also cleaned and dried my bowl extremely well and pulled it apart and left it on top of the stove whole the crust was blind baking and I think the heat from the oven helped dry it out that bit further.

This was the end result. The meringue cracked on top as I pulled it out the oven as it hit the rack on top but I was still very happy with it!


Next time I make it I would like to reduce the sugar but I'm in sure of how this will affect the cooking process? Hubby and I don't really eat sugar so I guess we are just not used to it.

That is a super tart fertilemertile, the height of the meringue is amazing.

It looks fantastic! And the sweet thing is something that everyone likes to play with a bit. I up the zest in my lemon curd to temper it, but meringue is often tooth-achingly sweet :)

I made an amalgam of different recipes with varying degrees of success! Janie Turner's base is so easy and worked well. The lemon curd worked equally well (followed this recipe to a t) but pulverising the sugar as specified and then using the electric mixer to make the meringue was a disaster! It just would not turn into fluffy meringue. Finally, just used another 4 egg whites with 80 gms of caster sugar as per a taste.com recipe and this turned a disaster into a success!
