Lemon Chiffon Pie

I remember Mum making this delightfully retro recipe. A few years ago I asked her for the recipe and made it several times as Andrew and I both really liked it. I stopped making it because I found that it was easier to have none than to keep myself to only one piece.

1/3 cup melted butter
1/4 cup castor sugar
2 cups crushed cornflakes (I use Weeties which have some nutritional value)
1 tin condensed milk (skim is fine)
2 eggs, separated
1/2 cup lemon juice (around 2 lemons' worth)

1. Mix cornflakes, sugar and melted butter and press into pie dish. This pie dish belonged to my Granny.

2. Mix condensed milk, egg yolks and lemon juice. Let thicken then fold in egg whites that have been beaten with a spoonful of sugar until stiff.

3. Pour into base and refrigerate.

I wasn't going to have any, considering my past problem, but Jossie didn't like it (?!) so I had to eat hers.


  1. That sounds delicious, a lot like my key lime pie recipe. So Amy,I've been wondering, how did you come up with the name of your blog?

  2. That does look awfully good! Well you have a taker if Jossie doesn't want another piece!

  3. Looks fabulous but I'm trying to lose weight so I won't be trying it. I eat most of the desserts .around here-as my waist line will tell you

  4. Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!
