Lemon meringue éclairs
2 eggs, separated
2 tbsp caster sugar
160g lemon curd
60ml whipped cream

  1. Whisk the egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form.
  2. Slowly add the sugar, a tablespoon at a time, whisking between each addition, until the meringue becomes thick and glossy. Test this by rubbing a little of the mixture between your fingers; it should not feel grainy.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag and pipe (or spread) over the top of the éclairs. Toast under a hot grill for a few minutes until they just start to brown.
  4. Stir together the lemon curd and the whipped cream, then spread into the insides of the cooled éclairs.
