Lemon Meringue Cupcakes (Martha Stewart)

MS Cupcakes Club

For this month's Martha Stewart's Cupcake Club, Megan from My Baking Adventures chose Lemon Meringue Cupcakes on page 142 of Martha's book: Martha Stewart's Cupcake Book

I made half the recipe in minis (about 48 cupcakes). My torch was unavailable (don't ask) and my whisk was missing (again, don't ask). So I opted for a quick cream cheese frosting. I want to try them again with the proper meringue.

The combo of Meyer lemon zest and a dollop of lemon curd...delicious!

Be sure to check out the other Martha Stewart Cupcake Club members and their version of the recipe! I'm sure you'll see lots of yummy torched meringue!

P.S. On the Ides of March, I wish my friend Jun a happpppy birthday!

Martha Stewart's Cupcake Book: Lemon Meringue Cupcakes, page 142

The Martha Stewart Cupcake Club doesn't post the recipe, but you can find this one on Martha's website here. You can use WorldCat to see if your library has this book in their collection.
Pin It!

Eh, no torch! Eh, no whisk! But I'm not asking.

Love making minis. I bet these were delicious little bite fulls of lemon. Very pretty.

Those look really cute. I think the combination of cream cheese and lemon sounds delicious.

I have a black hole in my kitchen which seems to suck in ingredients to some alternative universe so I understand completely. I love the addition of the cream cheese and meyer lemons.I'm going to have to try that if I make this again.

What a nice club to belong to! Your cupcakes look so fresh and perky all lined up....I think I want one, or 2, or 3...

Look and sounds delicious! I love this cream cheese though.

Hindy said... [Reply to comment]

I think cream cheese icing would be perfect with these lemon treats. Well done!

Jo said... [Reply to comment]

These cupcakes look gorgeous. Love lemons and with lemon curd, even more heavenly.

Wow, they look so lovely! I sure do love Martha's cream cheese frosting recipe, so I can surely understand the substitution! I also had to make some substitutions and intend to make these again the full-on Martha way in the future. :)

Delicious! I really love the idea of using the cream cheese instead of meringue...yum!

Gorgeous as always Mary! Love the little dollop of cream cheese frosting on top. I changed up the frosting too but I did whipped cream. These were mighty delicious, weren't they :)

Um... I think I had your torch. I had fun. Too much maybe. These look heavenly. Un-torched and pure. :) Delightful! These WERE good, weren't they?

These look perfect!!!

Cream cheese sounds like a great option for these cupcakes, I'll have to try that next time. I want to have another go with the lemon curd since mine didn't turn out.

So, so cute. But who is absconding with your kitchen equipment? You never know when you'll need to whisk or torch something...

Thanks a lot for all the great cupcake ideas and photos. You made my mouth water so much that I started making cupcakes too (my first baking project since I moved from France, two months ago!)

Here's the link to the article that links to yours:


Thanks a lot for the inspiration!

can't wait to make these for my boyfriend's mother's birthday this weekend! what was the cream cheese frosting recipe you used? martha's website had a few versions so wanted to make sure i got it right :) thanks so much for posting!

Sarah (#37), I use a 1:1:1 cream cheese frosting. One block of cream cheese (8 oz, I think) and one cup of powdered sugar and one teaspoon of vanilla. Whisk with a paddle attachment until smooth. Pipe onto cupcake. Have fun - mary the food librarian

Jami said... [Reply to comment]

Mary - Not sure how I missed these. They look delicious! How was the cupcake itself (minus curd/frosting)? I am toying with lemon cupcakes for a baby shower this weekend, and I won't have time to experiment, so I want to go with a trusted source! (That's you!)

The Food Librarian said... [Reply to comment]

jami #39, um...I don't remember. I don't think I ate one before all the curd was added. Sorry. I also used Meyer lemons and not regular lemons. Other people in the club seemed to like the cupcakes though! - mary
