Food 24′s Easy Step-by-Step Meringues
Last Friday our daughter pranged her car, she’s fine but the vehicle isn’t and so Princess Gilly is swanning around in my wheels and I’m stuck at home. Because I work from our house nobody seems to think it might be a problem for me *rolls eyes* Myself and my credit card are suffering from cabin fever,
Which might explain why I made meringues, which I didn’t even know how to spell and I have a bad track record for. On Food24′s home page today there was a step-by-step recipe for them and as I had two egg whites in the fridge I thought I’d give it a try.
I followed the instructions to the letter and all was going well until it came to piping them onto the baking sheet, as you can see my piping skills are sadly lacking! You can of course, just dollop spoonfuls onto the tray instead.
I halved the recipe and I made 8 reasonably sized cream cakes plus a couple of odd looking tasters Do use the link to see the recipe, they give some nice options such as adding rose water and a few drops of red colouring to give them a turkish feel, which I did.
Just goes to show, put some really rubbish looking cakes on a pretty cake stand and suddenly they don’t look half bad!
High tea anyone?
