Easter Meringues


I managed to get some baking done today too. I’ll be making Pavlova for dessert tomorrow and baked meringues. Changed the recipe a bit and added lemon zest and yellow food colour. 

This recipe makes two baking sheets of small meringues (ca 40)

3 egg whites, 100 g caster sugar, 3 drops of vinegar, 1 tsp yellow food colour

Pre-heat the oven to 175 C.

Whisk the eggs and sugar fluffy and shiny. Add the vinegar and fold in. Add finely grated zest of half a lemon.  Place into a plastic bag and brush the food colour on the inside. Squeeze small meringues on a baking sheet.

Place the pans into the oven and sink the temperature to 125 C. Bake for 45 minutes. Turn down the heat and set the oven ajar. Let cool in the warm oven.

I made half of the bath white and the other one yellow. I hope there will be some left for tomorrow and Easter dinner!
