I love meringues since I was a child. My mom use to make them at Christmas. We didn’t have too many types of sweets when I was a child because we were under communism, but my mom use to make homemade cookies and cakes and they were amazing.
The most known types of meringues are French, Swiss, and Italian.
You have only 3 ingredients but the preparation takes a little more attention.
I made some spicy meringues pouring some chili sauce on top of it. They were amazing! The combination of sweet and spicy is so nice!
- 2 eggs whites
- 1 pinch of salt
- 120 g caster sugar
Preheat the oven to 140°C/fan120°C/gas 1. In a large, grease-free mixing bowl, whisk the egg whites with the salt to soft peaks. Warm the sugar for 2 minutes on a baking tray with baking paper.
While continuously whisking, slowly add the caster sugar – 1 tbsp at a time – until you have a stiff, glossy meringue mixture.
Line a baking tray with a baking paper fixing it in place with a tiny blob of meringue in each corner. With a piping bag start making shapes. Because is Christmas I made a Christmas tree and some meringues in the shape of drops. I decorated them with golden powder.
Bake for 1¼ hours for mallow centers, or 1½ hours if you prefer crisper meringues. Peel off the baking paper then transfer the meringues to a wire rack to cool or leave the crisp ones in the turned-off oven for at least 4 hours to cool slowly and then transfer to a wire rack.
To make the meringue chewy you need to cook it for less time.

These would be lovely on the holiday dinner table!
My oma makes these and adds lemon or orange extract to them – they are delicious. I tried making them several times as a kid and had no luck. For some reason they never seem to turn out the way I want them to. This is one of my favourite desserts too!
I think the process is a a little difficult. It took me a few times to get it right.
Yours are perfection imo 😌 I bet they taste as delicious as they look!
Thank you. They were.
Meringues are one of my favorite too. By the way I love your food pictures. Do you have special food photo tips on your site or a tag to find them easily? I remember reading one with photo angle but how will I find it again?
oh sorry I found your category. don’t bother!
Meringues were a favorite of mine growing up. My mom would make them with a spoon indentation and after cooked put vanilla ice cream in the “valley” and then top with hot fudge. Yummy memories!
Wow! Sounds amazing! I will give it a try.
I always asked for it for my birthday rather than cake! Hope it works for you too!
