FoodIt feels as though Summer is starting to wind down here in London so in order to help hold on to the season I wanted to make something synonymous with sunny days. Meringues are so easy to make and are an instant crowd pleaser, I have trouble digesting wheat but this naturally gluten free recipe make meringues a perfect sweet treat for anyone.
Summer Berry Meringue
I was kindly sent the 3 in 1 blender by Savisto to review and I used the electric whisk and food processor attachments to make this recipe. I've wanted a food processor for the longest time and it's been great finally having such a useful piece of kit in the kitchen.
4 large organic egg whites
115g caster sugar
315g icing sugar
1 tbl Strawberry Jam
How to make the meringues
While you are waiting for your meringues to cool you can make the strawberry sauce. Place a handful of halved strawberries, the remaining icing sugar and the strawberry jam in a food processor and pulse until blended together. You should have a sauce that can be easily drizzled over the meringues.
Whip the cream until it's at spooning consistency and assemble your meringues with the cream, strawberry sauce and then top with fruit.
Adding the topping is where you can have a lot of fun, why not have some friends over for dinner and serve the meringues, cream and sauce separately so everyone can make their perfect dessert? I took some mini ones round to a friend's house to watch the first episode of the Great British Bake Off (if anyone else watching?) and we all added our own toppings.
Thanks so much to Savisto for giving me the opportunity to try out one of their kitchen gadgets My friends were very appreciative! Mini meringues all round!
