Strawberry Meringues

Strawberry Meringues

With it being January, I’m trying to be healthy like many others, so what better to make than a batch of strawberry meringues, little mini ones to make individual desserts.

Those of you who ever go on Pinterest or follow American baking blogs will see that I have been inspired by the beautiful meringues made by Bakers Royale. I wish mine looked that good though!

Meringues before baking

Mini meringues or meringue nests make great light desserts, whether on their own, or with fruit compote or chopped fruit, or with Greek yogurt.

Of course you can pimp them up with lashings of whipped cream if you so desire too!

At only 50 calories each, you can have a couple of these without guilt.

They are so pretty to look at with those swirls of colour, you will be thinking of spring and summer and fresh fruit before you know it.

Strawberry meringues go down well with the children too, and would be perfect for a tea party alongside little cakes. Perhaps you could pair them with some marbled mini cakes for another little treat.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium egg whites
  • 115 g strawberry milkshake icing sugar
  • 105 g caster sugar
  • 0.5 tsp red food colour gel

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 110 degrees C (fan).
  • Line two baking sheets.
  • Beat the egg whites until fluffy and at the stiff peak stage.
  • Add the caster sugar a spoonful at a time, whisking on a higher speed. Once all incorporated it should be thick and glossy.
  • Fold in a third of the icing sugar with a spatula. Repeat until you have used all the icing sugar.
  • Add a little red food colour gel and swirl through with a skewer or knife so you have swirls of colour.
  • Use two dessert spoonfuls of mixture to make each meringue.
  • Bake for 1.5 hours or until the meringues are crisp underneath.
  • Leave to cool then enjoy.

They look perfect and super tempting.

Oh I could do with one of these right now! So pretty too!

These are gorgeous! I must admit that I’ve never managed to achieve the perfect swirly marble effect you demonstrate here – I just don’t know when to stop swirling, I guess. Maybe I’ll give it another go, inspired by these beautiful little treats!

Absolutely! I’ll give them another try – never say die, right?

I don’t know what I am doing wrong – probably it is my oven – but my meringues burnt! It was so sad as I’m not making another set of brownies to use the yolks in for awhile 🙁
I’m assuming it sounds like my oven was too hot?

These are the cutest looking little meringues, love the little swirls of colour. They would be great at a birthday party or baby shower!

These are absolutely beautiful! I love the delicate pastel pink swirl!

My love of meringues knows no bounds. They are just so pretty to look at and so delicious to eat. I once tried to make no sugar meringues (replacing with Splenda) and they were an unmitigated disaster – like a failed science experiment! These look lovely Lucy – thanks for linking to #CookBlogShare
