Mile High Lemon Meringue Cake
Normally, I’m not a big meringue person, but this cake is so beautifully executed, it’s hard to recall those early childhood memories of meringue that didn’t do me right. And this is no pie, folks, this is a flourless cake. There’s been a lot of chatter in these parts lately about flourless chocolate cakes for Passover, but let’s consider lemon for a moment: fresh, bright, refreshing, cleansing. And flourless; reminds me of deep rich lemon curd, or sassy tart lemonade. Could you go wrong?
Eli is charging $75 bucks for this cake, and because of its fragile nature, you must pick the cake up from the store on the Upper East Side. Could we make one at home?
Who’s got the guts to try this one?
