Raspberry Meringues

Raspberry Meringues

This is the first time I’ve made meringue from scratch. I intended to make macarons from Sweet Paris but the mixture was far too dry and they didn’t turn out well. Rather than attempting them again I decided to try something I’ve never made before.

I thought these dainty meringues sandwiches with a raspberry cream would be a good contrast to the ultra rich Toblerone Ice Cream I made earlier in the week.

The meringues came out ultra crispy on the outside and nice and chewy in the middle.

Raspberry Meringues

Ingredients

Ingredients

4 egg whites

120g caster sugar

1tsp white vinegar

1/2 tsp vanilla

110g icing sugar

Filling/drizzle

150g fresh raspberries

2 tsp caster sugar

125g white chocolate

60ml double cream

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 150 C and lightly oil and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Using an electric whisk beat the egg whites to stiff peaks. Continue to whisk, folding in the sugar 1 tablespoon at a time. Beat until the sugar is dissolved (test by rubbing the mixture between your fingers). Add the vanilla and vinegar and beat for about 1o minutes until smooth and glossy.
  3. Fold in the icing sugar. Dollop large spoonfuls of meringue onto the baking sheet 2 inches apart. Use the back of a spoon to swirl the tops.
  4. Place in the oven and reduce the temperature to 140 C and bake for 45 minutes, then turn off the oven open the door and leave for 15 minutes.
  5. Make the filling. Place the raspberries in the pan with the sugar and heat until the sugar dissolves. Pour through a sieve and put aside to cool.
  6. Finely chop the chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl Heat the cream in a saucepan to a simmer and pour over the chocolate. Stir until smooth and stir in 2 tablespoons of raspberry puree.
  7. Set aside to cool. Once fully cooled sandwich with the meringues or drizzle over top.

  1. Love the idea of meringue and the drizzle – nice contrast in textures and flavours. They look beautiful
