Mesmerising Meringue Bowls

Homemade crispy, crunchy meringue cups.  An elegant, yet surprisingly easy springtime dessert. 

Ingredients

  • 4 large duck egg whites
  • 225g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 105 C.
  2. Whisk the egg whites on low speed until they are frothy
  3. turn the mixer up to a medium speed, and start adding the sugar to the whites one tablespoon at time.
  4. Once all the sugar is combined with the eggs, add the vanilla.
  5. Turn the mixer up to high and whisk till stiff peaks.
  6. Put a large star tip into a piping bag, and fill it with the meringue mixture.
  7. Place a piece of baking paper onto a baking tray. Draw around a large glass 6 times onto the baking sheet.
  8. Place the cookie sheet pencil side down.  If the baking paper wont stick add some meringue mixture to each corner of the baking tray.
  9. Start piping the mixture onto each circle. make sure you go round 3-4 times to build a big enough wall.
  10. Bake in the oven for 1hour 30minutes. Once cooking time is completed turn the oven off and leave to dry out in the off oven overnight.
  11. Fill with your food desires! We used our homemade strawberry ice cream, for a unique eton mess!
