Baby Meringues

Like adult meringues, but smaller! They are light, airy and crispy. Slightly sweet with a hint of flavour or colour of your choice... they look cute stacked on the dessert table.

What did you think of this recipe?


Preheat oven to 110°C bake. Line two large baking trays with baking paper.
In a large bowl (not plastic) beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually, add Chelsea Caster Sugar very slowly. The sugar adding process should take at least 10 minutes. The resulting mixture should be thick and glossy.
Beat in the cornflour, vanilla essence and vinegar until just combined.
Use food colouring to tint the mixture if desired.
Spoon or pipe mixture into little 'blobs' on prepared trays. Bake for 45 minutes. The meringues should be dry all over and lift off the paper easily.
Cool on a wire rack before transferring to an airtight container (they will keep well for a couple of weeks).
Serve with whipped cream, fruit and berry or chocolate sauce, if desired.
