Caramel meringue

  • 4 pcs egg whites
  • 4/5 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp caramel syrup
  • 1 pinch salt

  1. Separate the eggs, set aside the yolks for another baking/cooking session, you won't need them.
  2. Start to whip the whites with the salt. When it's halfway to being a hard foam, add the half of the sugar, and whip it constantly.
  3. When it's nearly done, add the remaining sugar, and make it done. The last step is to add the caramel syrup and carefully fold it into the foam with 2-3 big easy stirs. The whipped egg whites should be so hard at the end that a cut with a knife should stay in it clearly.
  4. Heat the oven to 140°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  5. Fill the whites into a foam bag and form tiny cones.
  6. Bake the meringues for 20 minutes, then turn down the heat to 120°C for 20 more minutes.
  7. Turn off the heat and let the merigues dry out inside the oven, even overnight.

Good points

No good point, only sweet meringues.

Tip: to help the whites harden, use some food starch if you have difficulties. Syrup also helps the process.
