Passion Fruit and Honey Meringues

Theses make a great treat and are super easy to make all you need is a bit of time. Best of all you can make they to your taste so feel free to top them what ever you like.

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time 2 hours

Portions: 12 (Approximately)

Ingredients

  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 200g Caster Sugar
  • Greek Yoghurt
  • Passion Fruit
  • Honey

Method

  1. First preheat your oven to 120c and line two trays with baking paper
  2. Now you will need an electric hand whisk or food mixer with an whisk attachment. I would not recommend using a hand whisk as it will take a very long time
  3. First ensure the bowl and whisk you will use to whisk your eggs in is completely clean otherwise this will not work
  4. Now separate your egg yolks and whites into two separate bowls then pour your egg whites into your large clean bowl. Now you have your egg whites whisk them on a low speed for a few minutes to brake up the eggs then increase to a higher speed and whisk until your eggs become stiff peaks
  5. Now add half your sugar and continue to mix then add the rest and continue to whisk until the mixture becomes thick and glossy
  6. Now your mixture is thick you can either use a large spoon to portion your meringues or if you have a piping bag you can pipe some nests. This is up to you they will taste great either way
  7. Now it’s time to cook. To ensure they become crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside you need to cook them low and slow. So you will need to cook them for 1hour 30mins at 120c then turn the oven off and leave them for another 30mins inside the oven, this will help make them nice and chewy in the centre
  8. Now you can take them out of the oven and let them cool completely and top with what you like, I put Greek Yoghurt, honey and passion fruit as this is a great comb, but you can do what you like
