Simple but sweet, classic meringues. They make the perfect base for a wide variety of delectable desserts.
Try taking a couple, adding some whipped cream and fresh fruits and sticking them together for a delicious sweet dessert.
2 Large Egg Whites
½ cup Sugar
Set the temperature to 200ºF. Lay a piece of greaseproof paper on a baking tray.
Pour the egg whites into the bowl, add a little sugar and start to whip. Gradually, add the rest of the sugar, while continually whipping until the mixture becomes stiff and glossy.
For this to be a success the egg whites have to be completely yolk free and all utensils very clean. Any grease or yolk will prevent the whites from whipping.
Drop a teaspoonful of the mixture onto the baking tray. Repeat to create the individual meringues. Place each one an inch apart.
Place the baking tray in the centre of the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
Switch the oven off and leave the meringues inside for another hour.
Take the baking tray out of the oven and leave the meringues to cool.
Once cool, the meringues are ready to serve immediately.
