Raspberry & Chocolate Meringues

RASPBERRY & CHOCOLATE MERINGUES

I know this isn’t too relevant but I had to share these meringues (I hope this isn’t turning into a baking blog).  Inspired by my favourite cafe Little & Friday

I served them for my family Christmas lunch, they would be great for a party or entertaining

INGREDIENTS

150mls Egg white (approx 4 egg whites, if more discard)

1 cup Caster sugar

2 teaspoons Cornflour

1 teaspoon White vinegar

1 teaspoon Vanilla essence

100g Chocolate (I used Cadbury Energy)

20g Fresh As Raspberries (Half a packet)

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 150°c

Chop the chocolate into small pieces

I used Fresh As freeze dried Raspberry pieces

Whip the eggs whites until soft peaks

Gradually add the sugar and beat until glossy

Sift the cornflour over the mixture and fold through the vinegar and vanilla essence

Add the chocolate pieces and raspberries and gently fold through

Dollop the meringue mixture onto a baking sheet the size you prefer or you can pipe it on for a more uniform shape.  Just make sure the chocolate and raspberries will fit through the nozzle or hole

Dust with a little icing sugar and serve

I found the raspberries a little tart, I’m not sure if it was the batch or they are like that because they are freeze dried
