The weekend is over again *sigh*.
Though I can comfort myself with some of the meringue I made this weekend! They’re so much better than the store bought once. And so easy to make. Sure it takes some time, but it’s fairly simple.
3 egg whites
2 dl sugar
0,5 tsp lemon
What is important to get the meringues right is that the bowl is clean, and when I say clean I mean really really clean, there can be no water or fat left in the bowl or on the tools you use.
Oven should be 125 degrees Celsius
Mix lemon, egg whites with 1/3 of the sugar with an electric mixer until it’s white and then pour the rest of the sugar in as you go. This takes some time (approximately 7 minutes mixing) so be prepared for some noise.
You will know that you’re done when the mix is so firm you can turn the bowl upside down over your head! If you don’t dare you’re just not done 😉
If you want to add flavour, you can for example carefully blend in chocolate syrup or I guess any other flavoured syrup. I’ve only tried using chocolate syrup for ice cream but it turned out very pretty.
Use a spoon to form meringues on a baking sheet or as i did, use a 1 litre plastic bag and cut a small hole in the corner to squeeze out the mix. And don’t use the bag if you added flavour, this makes the colour blend to much and you may end up with grey or brown meringues.
Put them in the lower part of the oven for 45-60 minutes depending on the size. When they’re dry in the bottom they’re done.
So, good luck and
😀 happy baking 😀
