How to Make Meringues - Perfect Meringues - Crispy Outside, Soft Inside!!!
Recipe type: Sweets / Candy / Dessert
A good meringue is hard to find.... crispy on the outside and soft and squishy on the inside. This recipe takes the mystery out of how to make perfect meringues.
  • 6 Large egg whites
  • 350g Caster sugar
  • 2.5ml Salt
  1. Place the egg whites and salt in your mixer bowl. Fit the whisk to your machine and whisk on low speed for 60 seconds.
  2. Increase the speed to medium-high and whisk until the egg holds a peak.
  3. Turn the machine speed to high and gradually add the caster sugar one tablespoonful at a time.
  4. Once all of the caster sugar is added allow the machine to continue whisking until the mixture is thick and glossy. This process can take anything from 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how efficient your mixer is.
  5. Line 2 baking sheets with baking parchment and load the meringue mixture into a piping bag. Pipe the meringue rounds onto the parchment, leaving a little space between each.
  6. To make dessert cups or baskets, pipe the base of the basket to a diameter of 90mm, or 3.5 inches, then continue piping over the outside ring to build a wall.
  7. Bake the meringues in a preheated oven at 140c or 284f for 30 to 40 minutes and the color has darkened slightly.
  8. Allow the meringues to cool in the oven with door slightly open.
  9. Store the meringues in an air-tight container as they will soften due to humidity.
