Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
250ml strong black coffee
250ml water
440g sugar
5 egg whites
pinch salt
whipped cream, to serve

Method

  1. Heat coffee, water and sugar together, stirring until sugar has dissolved, then boil without stirring to make a thick syrup. Beat egg whites in a heatproof bowl until foamy, add salt and beat whites to a firm snow. Pour on the syrup in a steady stream, beating all the time. Place bowl over simmering water and beat for 5 minutes.
  2. Drop the meringue from a teaspoon in small peaked mounds onto a baking tray lined with baking paper or foil, spacing the mounds a little apart. Bake in a preheated slow oven 150°C for 40 minutes or until lightly browned at the top and firm to the touch. Cool. Store meringues in an airtight container. To serve, join together in pairs with whipped cream.
