275 g

2.5 ml

250 ml

Egg whites

Salt

Caster sugar

Vanilla or almond essence (optional)

Whipping cream

Method :
  • Preheat the oven to 110oC/225oF/Gas 1/4. Grease and flour two large baking sheets.
  • Beat the egg whites and salt in a metal bowl. When they start to form soft peaks, add half the sugar and continue beating until the mixture holds stiff peaks.
  • With a large metal spoon, fold in the remaining sugar and vanilla or almond essence, if using.
  • Pipe or spoon the meringue mixture on to the baking sheets. Bake for 2 hours, turn off the oven.
  • Loosen the meringues, invert, and set in another place on the sheets to prevent sticking.
  • Leave in the oven until cool. Whip the cream and use to fill the meringues.
