My daughter turned 13 and we celebrated all weekend long. For her actually birthday, I made her these. I thought that they were a little more sophisticated than your average cupcake. Now that she's a teenager, I've got to do more than sprinkles.
For the Batter:
Preheat oven to 350.
The juice and zest of 1 large lemon
3 egg yolks and 1 whole egg
1 package yellow cake with pudding in the mix
1 1 /4 cup water
1/3 cup oil
Mix all the ingredients and pour into 24 lined cupcake pan. Bake for 18 minutes. Remove and let them cool for 20 minutes.
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
Place mixture into a pastry bag and squeeze about a Tb. of filling into each cupcake.
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
3 egg whites
1/3 cup sugar
Beat cream of tartar and egg whites for about 45 seconds. Start adding sugar 1 Tb at a time, until it forms stiff peaks. Spoon onto cupcakes and bake @ 45o for 5-6 minutes or until the meringue is golden brown.
They were yummy served warmed and also great the next day after being in the fridge (although the meringue wasn't as pretty)
