Berry Topped Meringues
If you fancy a change from a chocolatey dessert, these are a winner. Our fresh berries, meringue and Greek yoghurt are a lovely combination. Or you can drizzle with cream if you prefer. You can make your own meringues really easily using our free range eggs. This requires the whites only but you can keep the yolks to make a carbonara. We’ve used strawberries, raspberries and blueberries to top ours.
Ingredients (makes 8 nests)
3 egg whites
150g golden caster sugar
Greek yoghurt, berries and honey for topping
Preheat your oven to 140 degrees. Using a hand mixer, whisk the egg whites until they become stiff peaks. Then 1 tablespoon at a time, add in the sugar and whisk. The mixture will become thick and glossy. Once all the sugar is used, spoon onto baking paper over a baking tray and bake for around an hour. The edges should be crispy and lift away from the baking paper easily. Leave in the oven with the oven door ajar and allow to cool. Then top with Greek yoghurt, berries and a drizzle of honey. The meringues will keep in an airtight container if you don’t use them all on the day.
