|Strawberries, nutty meringue and chocolate. Hello.|
I always measure in imperial for a meringue - 2oz of sugar for each white
3 egg whites
6 oz caster sugar
a tablespoon of cornflour
tsp white wine vinegar
50 g dark chocolate, chopped
a good handful of hazelnuts, chopped (I dry roasted mine in a pan for a bit first as they weren't roasted).
-Heat the oven to gas 1/2 /- 100C. Have ready 2 baking sheets lined with greaseproof.
- using an electric whisk, whisk the whites until they form soft peaks
-Add half of the sugar and whisk on high- it will go super shiny and smooth.
- Add the rest of the sugar along with the cornflour and vinegar. Continue whisking for a minute or so until very stiff and shiny. Super luxurious marshmallowy deliciousness.
- Gently fold in the nuts and chocolate with a large metal spoon.
- distribute in to pillowy piles on the sheets and bake for around an hour.
I served mine with a few tiny strawberries and a whisper of cream.
