Zesty Lemon Meringue Roulade Recipe: Tangy & Fluffy Delight

Zesty Lemon Meringue Roulade Recipe: Tangy & Fluffy Delight



  • 1 fresh, zesty Lemon (just the zest, we’re keeping it zingy!)
  • 5 large Egg whites (preferably free-range to make your meringue extra cluckin’ good)
  • 2 tbsp Lemon curd (for that extra citrusy punch)
  • 275 g Caster sugar (to sweeten the deal)
  • A sprinkle of Icing sugar (for the final touch of snowy perfection)
  • 50 g Flaked Almonds (for a nutty crunch)
  • 400 ml Double or whipping cream (to keep things creamy)




  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (or 350°F), and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Get ready to roll!
  2. Zest up your life by grating the zest of that lemon. Keep it vibrant and tangy!
  3. Let’s whip up those egg whites! Grab a clean, dry bowl and whisk those whites into stiff peaks. It’s a workout for your whisk arm, but totally worth it.
  4. Sprinkle in the caster sugar gradually while whisking continuously. You want that meringue to be glossy and dreamy.
  5. Fold in the zesty lemon zest gently. We’re keeping it light and airy, just like a cloud on a sunny day.
  6. Spread this fluffy meringue goodness onto the prepared baking tray, forming a rectangle. Pop it in the oven for about 20-25 minutes until it’s lightly golden.
  7. While that’s baking, get your almonds into a pan and toast them lightly. Keep an eye on these little guys; they like to get golden brown quickly.
  8. Once your meringue is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool for a bit. Then, carefully flip it onto a clean tea towel dusted with icing sugar.
  9. Peel off the parchment paper gently. Now, spread that luscious lemon curd all over the meringue. Go on, be generous!
  10. Whip up your double cream until it’s nice and thick. Spread it evenly over the lemony curd layer.
  11. Sprinkle those lightly toasted almonds all over the creamy goodness. It’s like the cherry on top, but nuttier!
  12. Time to roll! Use the tea towel to help you roll the meringue from one short end to the other, creating a beautiful spiral.
  13. Carefully transfer your roulade onto a serving platter. Dust it with a bit more icing sugar for that final magical touch.
  14. Voila! Your tangy, zesty Lemon Meringue Roulade is ready to steal the show. Slice, serve, and enjoy the citrusy, fluffy goodness!



Remember, the zestier, the better! And if your roulade cracks a bit while rolling, don’t worry—it just adds character. Enjoy every lemony bite!
