by TENINA HOLDER

 

SERVES 8 – 10

NEED:

MERINGUE

  • 4-6 egg whites
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • Pinch pink salt flakes
  • ¼ cup golden caster sugar per egg white used
  • 2 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

TOPPING

  • 600 ml whipping cream
  • 2 tsp golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • Berries of choice to garnish
  • Fresh passionfruit pulp to garnish

DO:

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C and line a large tray with baking paper.
  2. Place egg whites, cream of tartar and salt into a large mixing bowl or a stand mixer.
  3. Whip up until foamy.
  4. Add the sugar a little at a time until the mixture is glossy and holding stiff peaks.
  5. Add the vanilla and vinegar and whip until fully combined.
