Holy Toledo, was this ever good. Followed the directions exactly, but think I should have done as Sarah Chana suggested and made it into two separate cakes. Also, I had the meringue overflow the pans. I went to the very edge with it, and think I should have gone within 1/4" of the rim. That's one reason my photo isn't as pretty as I had hoped. Nevertheless, an outstanding recipe. Thnx for sharing it, pines506

  7. Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned.
