Warning, if you’re totally against recipe shortcuts, offended by simple ingredients, feel ‘unfaithful’ to the history of a classic recipe by not making it from scratch, you may want to turn away..lol!

Although I have the utmost respect for the labor intensive, back breaking effort, of a great made from scratch dessert and the saints people who make them, I will always find ways to make my life easier! However I refuse to sacrifice any of the goodness, and flavor of those page-long recipes!  Here’s proof!

This cake offers all the amazing freshness and lemony loveliness of a classic Lemon Meringue Pie, with no egg separating, no boiling, no whipping, no puddles of wetness and no hoping and praying that it turns out right! 🙂

Take a peek at the simple line up below..


What you’ll need:

1 box lemon cake mix

1 jar lemon curd

1 container of white frosting

1 container of Marshmallow Fluff

1 lemon



Prepare the cake mix according to the instructions, zest the lemon and add the zest to the batter..bake at 350 until it’s cooked through..set aside.







While the cake is baking, prepare the “meringue-ish” topping by simply combining the jar of Marshmallow fluff, with the whole container of frosting…set aside!


Remember it’s not cheating, it’s creative..LOL!  🙂






Now it’s time to make the poke filling..yummy!  In a medium bowl stir together the jar of Lemon Curd and the juice from the lemon you zested..yep, that’s it! 


This is SO d-lish..make sure and lick the bowl clean!  🙂




When the cake is done and slightly warm, poke holes evenly throughout it and pour the lemon mixture over the top and into all the holes! 


It’s a beautiful thing!  🙂





Now for the fun part!  Top the cake with the meringue and make fun swirls with the spoon..and torch that baby!


Torch it good!





Stare at it for a minute before you cut it up..touch the crunchy top..be amazed! 


It tastes as incredible as it looks!  🙂




This cake rides the border between moist and totally wet with bursts of lemony flavor..you will need a utensil, especially if you’re not alone..lol!

Take a big bite and  sink into your refreshingly sweet clouds of toasty-marshmallowy lemony cake!  ~Enjoy!  🙂
