Meringue Mountains Recipe

Meringue Mountains Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 6

2 eggs whites
100 g/4 oz caster (superfine) sugar
150 ml double (heavy) cream
350 g/12 oz strawberries, sliced

25 g/1 oz plain (semi-sweet) chocolate, grated

Method:

Beat the egg whites until stiff. Add half the sugar and beat until thick and glossy. Fold in the remaining sugar. Pipe six circles of meringue on to baking parchment on a baking (cookie) sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 140C/275F/ gas mark 1 for 45 minutes until pale golden and crisp. The insides will remain fairly soft. Remove from the sheet and cool on a wire rack.


Whip the cream until stiff. Pipe or spoon half the cream over the meringue circles, top with the fruit, then decorate with the remaining cream. Sprinkle the grated chocolate over the top.
