2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
3/4 cup caster sugar
3/4 cup milk
125g butter, melted, cooled
2 x 59g eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla essence or vanilla bean paste
Lemon curd
25g (1/6 cup) cornflour
Lemon juice 1/2 cup
Water 1/4 cup
1/2 cup caster sugar
4 Egg whites
Caster sugar 1/2 cup


Place cake ingredients in a mixing bowl. Beat for a few minutes until well combined. Place mixture in party pans and bake at 180C for 15 minutes or until cooked.

Curd: combine all ingredients in a saucepan and mix over medium heat, continue stirring for about 4 minutes until mixture thickens. Allow to cool completely.

Mix egg whites in a clean dry bowl until stuff peaks form. Gradually add sugar over 3-4 minutes while mixer is still going.

Scoop a teaspoonful of cake out off the top and full with cooked lemon curd. Place egg whites gently on top.  Place under the grill until light brown (or use a blow torch).
