I am so so pleased how this dessert has turned out.
My family wsa really thrilled to see this on the coffee table as it looked so beautiful and it was really delcious.
This is one of the best Meringue I have made, got to recipe from one of the cooking shows from Channel 4 , I think it is called come and Dine with me or something like that.
Ofcourse you can uuse any fruits you want, I used strawberry and Cheries as they are in season now and ofcourse then i could send this for my .
4 egg white
225 castor sugar
1 1/2 tblsp vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp corn flour
For the filling.
1 tsp. unflavored gelatin
4 tsp. cold water
1 c. heavy whipping cream (at least 24 hours old and very cold)
Few tablspoon icing sugar
1/2 tsp. clear vanilla extract
Combine gelatin and cold water in small saucepan. Let stand until thick. Place over low heat, stirring constantly just until gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Whip cream, sugar and vanilla until slightly thickened. While beating slowly, gradually add gelatin to whipped cream mixture. Whip at high speed until stiff.
I use this method so that the cream doesn't go soft after a while.
You can also just whipp up the cream with sugar and vanilla and spread them too.
Line a baking trey with baking paper . Preheat the oven to 15°c.
Beat egg whites with untill foamy.
This is important , you should add the sugar spoon by spoon and then whipp the whites again .
Mix the vinegar with the corn flour and add to the eggwhite mixture together with the last spoon of sugar. Whipp till everthing is mixed well.
Draw a circle on the baking paper and spread the meringue . you should make a small pit in the middle with a spoon so that you can later fill them with the whipped cream.
Bake in the oven for 150°c for a hour.
After a hour off the oven, but leave the meringu to cool in the oven.
It should be fully cooled before you fill it up with the cream and the fruits.
Spread the whipped cream in the midlle , lavishly and decorats with strawberried and cherries or any fruit of your choice.
Keep in the fridge for a hour before you serve.
Tip I always make the meringue a day before and after they bake in the oven for a hour, I off the oven and just leave them in the oven till next day, when i use them.
