BLOG HOP TIME AGAIN!!!!!!
Welcome to Lovebug Scrapbooking's "INSPIRE US!" blog hop!! Our blog hops
take place on the last Saturday of
every month. Thanks so much for joining us!
If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking
place, please go back to Lovebug Scrapbooking and start the Hop. You won't
want to miss all the ispiration from our members....... or the prizes
This time around I wanted to share with you a recipe I got from my Aunt Mayme, it is a lovely, light dessert perfect after any big meal. We used to try to go to Thunder Bay to visit her every year on March break and she always made this one for me.
This isn't the greatest picture of it, but trust me when I say you will love it!
This is basically an upside down lemon meringue pie, the meringue is your bottom crust...how fun is that!
Beat 5 egg whites stiff and add while beating
1 1/2 tsp vinegar
1 1/2 tsp water
2 tsp vanilla
1 2/3 cup white sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
Pour into large WELL greased cake pan. Bake at 275 for 1 hour. Turn heat down to 230 and bake for an additional 20 minutes. Turn oven off and leave the pan in the oven overnight.
mix 1 tin Eagle Brand Milk
1/2 -3/4 cup lemon juice (I like to use more as it doesn't end up with a strong lemony taste otherwise)
1 egg yolk
*Whip 1/2 pint whipping cream and fold into the above mixture. Spread on top of meringue and chill atleast 3 hours.
Your meringue might be puffed up and uneven - just poke it lightly down and then add topping.
Another thing I like to do is to grate a little zest of lemon onto the top of the dessert for a little more zing.
Now how about leaving some comments for me and share one of your favorite recipes with me? If you do, I'll put your name in a draw for a RAK from me. And please come back and tell me how you enjoyed this recipe when you try it yourself.
This blog hop will run from today, February 27th until March 2nd. We will
be drawing for winners on March 3rd.
