Preparation time: 20 minutes

Total cooking time: 35 minutes

Serves: 6-8 pieces

Oven: preheat to 200 degrees Celsius



Make your own sweet pastry pie crust in advance, or buy one premade from your baker


  • ½ cup cater sugar
  • 1/3 cup cornflour
  • 1 cup water
  • grated rind of 2 bush lemons (normal lemons will be fine)
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ½ cup cater sugar, extra


To make filling:

  1. Combine ½ cup sugar with cornflour in a pan.
  2. Stir in water lemon rind and juice.
  3. Cook, stirring constantly ( a whisk is good) over a moderately low heat until thickened. Reduce heat and simmer 2-3 minutes.Remove from heat.
  4. Beat eggs in a small cup, stir in a little bit of hot mixture, then return all to pan.
  5. Cook, stirring for another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Stir in butter. Sit on cool stove.

To make meringue:

  1. Use very clean bowl (I prefer glass/Pyrex) and beaters.
  2. Beat egg whites until really stiff.
  3. Add extra caster sugar (1/2 cup) only a tablespoon at a time, and beat for 2 minutes in between. If you are patient, this will create stiff peaks.

To cook:

  1. Assemble pie with curd in pastry shell, and meringue on top.
  2. Cook in oven on a flat tray for easier removal. Cook for 10 mins, or until golden on top of meringue.
  3. Cool pie. Serve cold with a dollop of fresh cream.
