Raspberry Merengues

Hey Hey Heeey πŸ™‚

This might be the easiest recipe I’ve ever tried.
Really, it CAN NOT fail.

My mother loves merengues very much. We had a family dinner and she asked for something light.
(My chocolate cake can be very heavy…)
So I immediately thought about merengues. I knew I had some raspberries left, so I decided to put them in πŸ™‚

I can’t really tell how many merengues you’ll get out of this recipe because it depends on how big or small you make them.
I had 12 merengues with this recipe.

What do we need?
– 260g sugar
– 8 egg whitesΒ Β Β  – a pinch of salt
– raspberries
– a piping bag + decoration tip
– a tray
– baking paper

First, we mix the egg whites and the salt until you get it nice and fluffy.
Then, you add the sugar while you’re still mixing. The sugar needs to ‘stick’.
You’ll see what I mean if you add the sugar one bit at the time πŸ™‚
Now we add the raspberries. Make sure they’re cut into tiny tiny pieces. If not, they’ll get stuck in your piping bag and the merengue won’t be able to come out of it.
If the merengue is smooth and sticky, it’s time to pipe it!

Choose a decoration tip you like and fill the piping bag. (I’ve used decoration tip 2D by Wilton)
Put some baking paper on a tray. Pipe the merengue in any size you like.
Put it in the oven for about 70 minutes on 100Β°C.

When they’re done, check it. A merengue should sound hollow if you tap on the bottom.
Inside, it needs to be sticky. But you can only find out by tasting one πŸ˜‰

See, told you it was easy!

Have a delicious day and enjoy your raspberry merengues!

p.s. You can add any flavour you like to the merengue πŸ™‚ Sometimes, it’s better to use a powder instead of a real piece fruit. For example a kiwi. I think kiwis are too liquid to use for your merengues.

  2. I have always meant to make merengue but never gotten round to do it because I always say I must plan what to do with the yolks before I start and so I’ve been planning and never starting. I love the raspberry ones. they must taste great!
