Simple but sweet classic meringues. They make the perfect base for a wide variety of delectable desserts. Relish my Meringues recipe.

Classic Meringues

  Ingredients 

2 large egg whites

8 tablespoons sugar 

Set the temperature to 100 C / lowest gas mark

Lay a piece of greaseproof paper on the baking tray.
Pour the egg whites into the bowl, add a little sugar and start to whip. Gradually, add the rest of the sugar, while continually whipping until the mixture becomes stiff and glossy. (For this to be a success the egg whites have to be completely yolk free and all utensils very clean. Any grease or yolk will prevent the whites from whipping.)

Drop a teaspoonful of the mixture onto the baking tray. Repeat to create the individual meringues. Place each one an inch apart.
Place the baking tray in the centre of the oven and bake for 45 minutes
Switch the oven off and leave the meringues inside for another hour
Once cool, the meringues are ready to serve immediately. Try taking a couple, adding some whipped cream and fresh fruits and sticking them together for a delicious sweet dessert. Or they can be stored in an airtight container for up to one week.

You can also add a minute drop of colouring to make different coloured meringues and use whatever cream you want to make a pair. Another thing you an do is when the meringues are quite cool, dip the top half in some chocolate, just the curly bit. Yum yummy yum!
