Meringue

I just made my first successful batch of meringue! I can’t believe how easy it was after so many no-so-successful attempts. I made some crema catalana earlier and was left with 4 egg whites so I decided to give this recipe a go. I’m now very thankful I did! (I’ll be posting the crema catalana with licorice a little later on, it was yummy too). I found the original recipe in a Finnish blog called Punavuori Gourmet. Punavuori is a part of town in Helsinki, Finland :) I changed the original amounts a tiny bit but the recipe’s really not all that long.

ca. 50 meringues

  • 4 egg whites
  • 2,5 dl fine granulated sugar

Whip the egg whites in a mixer so that you’ll have the time and energy to whip it into a really thick and shiny white foam. Add the sugar little by little. Then you can just use e.g. a spoon to make small round “meringue kisses” on the oven plate. Bake in 120°C for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. The meringues should be dry and light when they’re done.

Whip the egg whites and sugar so until it forms a very thick and shiny foam
