Lemon Meringue Pie Cupcakes

I made this lemon meringue pie cupcakes yesterday because I really needed to bake some of these cuties...and what a better way to enjoy a warm afternoon than with something really citric...mmmm....this is how they look on the inside:

Can you see it?? was soooo delicious!

Cupcakes: (makes about 30)
- 3 cups flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup room tº milk
- 1 cup butter at room tº
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt until well combined, you can do it with your electric mixer if you want.
- In a large measurement bowl whisk the eggs, milk and vanilla...then add it slowly to the dry misture and beat until all the ingredients are well combined.
- Divide the batter evenly among the liners, about 1/3 and make a hole in the middle, like this:
Then in the middle of the hole add about a teaspoon of the lemon mixture.
- 1/2 can condensed milk
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 2 egg yolks
- Mix the condensed milk and lemon juice for about a minute and then add the egg yolks, mix until well combined. And now you can fill your cupcake.
When they´re done put then in the oven for about 20 minutes or until golden.

This is how they look when they´re ready....mmmm....but there´s one thing missing....

The meringue! Beat 4 egg whites until hard peaks are formed and add syrup (6 tbsp sugar and 6 tbsp water, bring it to a boil until thick). And beat well until it is cooled (7 minutes aprox). Finally add some icing sugar (1/4 cup) and beat for another minute.
Decorate your cupcakes!
And for a final touch use your kitchen blowtorch if you have one....but if you don´t then don´t worry....because they look good anyway.

But is so fun to burn them ahahahahaha!

And one last one cute! Hope you like them.

Hola! los hice ayer.... si bien el cupcake en si quedó exquisito (textura, olor, sabor) la crema de limón se fue hacia abajo... no me quedó el relleno en la mitad del cupcake. Sabes por que puede ser???
