What I do is take a boxed lemon cake and add lemon juice and zest, a tiny bit of orange zest. Then make lemon filling like u would make for a lemon meringue pie. Then cover with the egg whites and bake until meringue is golden brown. Hope this helps.

coloradoflower--I am trying to understand what you said, so let me tell you what I think you said and please correct me where I am wrong.

You take a box of Lemon Cake mix-dry, put it in a pan and add lemon zest and orange zest to the dry mix. Then make lemon filling and put it on top of the dry mix and top with meringue and put in oven until golden brown. Is this what you mean?

My understanding of what she said is she makes a boxed lemon cake but adds lemon juice and zest in with the mix and other usual ingredients (egg, water, whatever)

After she bakes it, she makes a lemon filling and fills the cake. Then she frosts the cake with meringue. She then puts the whole frosted cake in the oven and bakes it until the meringue begins to brown.

Exactly artscallion.... I should have made it more clear to follow directions on the box and add the lemon juice and zest. Sorry it's still early for me icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks, I did know it might have sounded strange, but someone I know makes a dessert similar to what I wrote and I was just checking.
