M is for Meringues

Category: food

Forget store-bought. Make your own meringues with just a few simple ingredients – it’s easier than you’d think. Top them off with a dose of strawberry goodness and treat yourself to a much-needed sugar hit.

Method

1 - For the meringue: Preheat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) | 350F | gas 4. Grease and line two large baking trays with greaseproof paper. 
2 - Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt in a large, oil-free mixing bowl until stiff. Gradually add the sugar and cream of tartar, continually beating as you do, until the meringue is glossy and thick, about 5-7 minutes. 
3 - Gently warm the jam in a saucepan set over a low heat. Working quickly, gently swirl the jam into the meringue. 
4 - Spoon the meringue into a large piping bag fitted with a large, round nozzle. Pipe 12 swirls onto the baking trays, spaced apart. 
5 - Place in the oven and immediately reduce the temperature to 130°C (110° fan) | 250F | gas 1/2. 
6 - Bake for around 1 hour 20-30 minutes, and then turn off the oven and open the door, leaving the meringues to cool in the oven; they should be crisp on the outside but still soft on the inside. 
7 - To assemble: Once cool, remove from the oven. Whip the cream in a mixing bowl until softly peaked. Stir in the jam. 
8 - Spread the cream onto the undersides of half of the meringues. Sandwich against the undersides of the remaining meringues to complete before serving.
