Fruity, Curdy, Free-From Meringue
4 eggs whites
200 grams caster sugar
Parchment/Baking/Grease proof paper
300 mls of free from yogurt (or whisked free from double cream, or whisked dairy double cream)
300 grams of your favourite fruits (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries & cherries
6 heaped tbsps. The Cherry Tree Passion Fruit Curd
I like to make my meringues a little gooier on the inside, so this method will achieve just that!
Preheat the oven to 150 degrees centigrade.
Put the egg whites into a large mixing bowl and whisk until they form stiff peaks that hold their shape (be careful not to over whisk them!).
Now add your sugar 1 tbsp at a time, whisking on a medium heat until you achieve a lovely glossy shine.
Place your mixture onto a grease proof sheet in whatever fashion you wish.
You can create individual meringues or you can create more of a circle (which is what I have done) with little peaks around the edge and a flat(ish) middle for filling with cream and fruit.
Once your design is ready, place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes. Remove and leave to cool before decorating.
The decoration is not an art – simply smother in your yogurt or cream, then the Passion Fruit curd, then lash on the fruits!
