Lemon “Meringue” Cake

Ingredients

  • 1 can (15.75 oz/425 g) lemon flavored pie filling
  • 1   lemon
  • 1 small pkg (9 oz) yellow cake mix or 1⅔ cups (400 mL) from a regular-size package
  • 1   egg
  • 1 container (8 oz or 250 mL) sour cream
  • 1 cup (250 mL) sweetened flaked coconut, divided (optional)
  • 1 bag (10 oz or 400 g) mini marshmallows (4 cups/1 L)

Directions

  1. Place oven rack in middle of oven; preheat broiler. 

  2. Spread pie filling evenly over bottom of Rockcrok® (2.5-qt./2.35-L) Everyday Pan with Small Mix ‘N Scraper®.  

  3. Using Microplane® Zester, zest lemon over Classic Batter Bowl. Add cake mix, egg, sour cream and half of the coconut, if desired, to batter bowl; mix with Small Mix ‘N Scraper® until blended. Pour batter over pie filling. 

  4. Microwave, covered, on HIGH 10-12 minutes or until cake is firm in the center and springs back when pressed.  

  5. Remove Pan from microwave to Stackable Cooling Rack; arrange marshmallows in an even layer over cake. If desired, sprinkle remaining coconut evenly over marshmallows (let the coconut fall between the gaps of the marshmallows).  

  6. Broil 30-60 seconds or until marshmallows are golden brown and coconut begins to toast (watch carefully to avoid over-toasting).  

  7. Remove from broiler to cooling rack. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve warm with Chef’s Spoon.
