Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 Hour 10 minutes
Makes: 12 servings


Lemon butter
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest
100g unsalted butter
cup caster sugar
2 egg yolks
1 egg

Meringue Tops
2 egg whites
cup caster sugar

I cup gluten free self raising flour
2 eggs
2 tablespoons milk
90g unsalted butter, softened
cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Lemon butter

Over a double boiler whisk eggs and sugar, after sugar has dissolved add lemon juice, zest and butter. Remove from heat, whisk continuously until thick and creamy. Set aside, stir occasionally until completely cooled.


Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180C. Combine all cupcake ingredients in large mixing bowl. Mix until light and creamy.

Half fill 12 cupcake cases.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean. Remove from oven and reduce heat to 100C. Stand for 5 minutes and transfer to cooling rack.


Line a baking tray with baking paper. Trace around the bottom of your cupcake case onto the baking paper, repeat until you have 12 circles about 2cm apart. Turn baking paper over (you should be able to see the circles through the paper).

Whisk egg whites until light and fluffy. Gradually add the sugar while continuing to whisk, whisk until a soft peak is formed.

Fill a piping bag with mixture and pipe 12 meringue tops onto baking tray.

Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes. Let cool in oven with door slightly opened.

Remove middle of cupcakes (i used a piping bag nozzle but a small fruit scoop works also) and insert lemon curd into hole and apply a layer on top as well.

Put meringue on top. And you're finished! 12 delicious and impressive gluten free lemon butter cupcakes.
