Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

I found a recipe for this cupcake that was fairly complicated. I simplified it by using a cake and pudding mix. I am posting this recipe on Cupcake Tuesday, http://hoosierhomemade.com/
I used a lemon cake mix and lemon cook and serve pudding mix. Use directions on both boxes, let cupcakes and pudding cool completely.
 Use a knife to cut a hole in middle of cupcake.
Fill hole with pudding.
Meringue

Beat 3 egg whites with 1/2 teaspoon cream of  tartar until frothy. Gradually beat in 6 tablespoons sugar, a little at a time.

Continue beating until stiff and glossy. Beat until sugar is dissolved.


Top each cupcake with meringue.


Bake at 400 degrees, for  8-10 minutes, or until tops are golden brown. Watch carefully it is easy to burn meringue.

  3. Perfect! I have been craving lemon meringue pie, but I would eat the entire thing. I am going to make these instead so I can give away all but the one I eat.
