Get ahead! Make the base and filling and leave to chill, then whip the meringue and finish just before serving so you can spend your time with your guests not in the kitchen!

This is a lighter version of a classic Lemon Meringue* with at least 30% less fat!’ We love the zingy sharp lemon flavour against the sweet meringue, a perfect easy recipe for impressing family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Firefighters Adored this when I got a cake fine! I have made this x3 I doubled the ingredients to fed 10 people. They all were amazed, and it made me look like a 5 star Baker! Followed the instructions, I added a tiny bit of cornflour maybe 100g, just to make sure it set, and make sure you add sugar gradually to the egg whites or you get a flat meringue like I did on my 3 meringue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! Cooked this with my son - he loved cooking it and making it however we followed the instructions precisely and when it came out the oven it was still liquid in the centre - do not recommend this recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious and easy This is easy to make and delicious. You can make the lemon part the day before and then do the meringue topping the next morning ready for the evening. It keeps really well in the fridge. You could probably do the meringue topping the day before too.
