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,
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.

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.


  1. WOW...these look devine! I'm sure my bunch will love them :)


  2. Love them! I am going to have to steal this one from you! I'll let you know how it comes out! Thanks!
