How to make lemon meringue pie – a recipe

27 Sep

A perfect classic lemon meringue tart recipe.

the hungry mum


A confession before we continue: I did not make this luscious looking creation. Rather, The Hungry Dad and Miss7 whipped it up for a family lunch at my mum’s house recently. I’m lucky – I married a man who is a great cook and our first born also loves cooking (especially desserts!).


They chose this recipe from my ever-present copy of Australian Women’s Weekly ‘Bake.’

It is no exaggeration to say this pie was the hit of the lunch – everyone was full of compliments for my hubby and daughter. So proud!



½ cup cornflour

1 cup caster sugar

½ cup lemon juice

1 ¼ cups water

2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind

60g butter, diced

3 eggs, separated

½ cup caster sugar, extra


1 ½ cups plain flour

1 tablespoon icing sugar

140g cold butter, diced

1 egg yolk

Approx 2 tablespoons iced water

      I am very lucky! The Hungry Dad is a much better cook than me, and when he turns his hand to baking he is fab at that, too 🙂
