I love a blender recipe. Probably because the clean up is so darn easy. I’m sure for most of you clean up is the worst part about baking/cooking. It’s amazing the amount of dishes you have from one meal. So yeah, something that you make in the blender? I am all over that. I was scrolling down my Pinterest feed and came across this recipe.

The best part is this pie is super easy (I used a frozen pie crust) but if you wanna make a quick pie crust it will still be pretty easy. The hardest part is picking out all of the seeds from the lemon, other than that you just throw everything in the blender, blend it up and pour into the crust.

40 minutest later you have a lemon, custard like pie! We liked this best chilled with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream on top. Is life giving you lemons? Do you need something to brighten your day? Make this pie, it is sure to turn your day around. It was just what my Monday needed.


– For the pie:
1 large lemon
4 large eggs
½ cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
1½ cups sugar
1 (9 inch) piecrust, unbaked (I used a frozen deep dish)
– For the topping: (optional)
1 cup whipping cream
2 Tablespoons sugar


1 Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.

2 Heat the milk with lemon peel until lukewarm.

3 Mix the egg yolks with sugar, vanilla sugar and lemon juice until the mixture turns white. Add the melted butter to the mixture, then the flour and salt and whisk.

4 Add the milk with the peel and stir well.

5 Stir the egg whites until stiff and gently work them into the preparation with a spatula. Gently mix with a whisk until the preparation becomes homogeneous.

6 Gently pour the dough into a round mold about 25 cm in diameter, previously covered with baking paper.

7 Do not bake more, not less than 50 minutes. Otherwise, your cake may not hold together or the layer may disappear. Let the cake cool before taking it apart.to end

For the meringues, beat the egg whites until stiff, then slowly add the sugar while continuing to whisk. Spread the meringue on top of the cake and brown it with a blowtorch. And for even more magic: sprinkle a few sugar stars!

Enjoy !
