A Contribution to "In the Pink" for Breast Cancer Awareness
Rose Pink Marbled Meringues:
The whites of 4 eggs.
1 cup of caster sugar.
2 teaspoons corn flour
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon rose essence
Pink Food Colouring
Preheat oven to 300F
Whisk egg whites until they form soft peaks.
Continue to beat as you gradually add the sugar.
Sieve corn flour onto meringue mix.
Add vinegar and essence.
Carefully fold ingredients together.
Swirl in a little pink food colouring.
Do not mix too well if you want a marbled effect.
Form meringue shapes on a lined baking sheet.
Put in the oven and turn temperature down to 250F
After half an hour turn oven off.
Leave in the oven to cool completely.
Result: Cute little pale pink rose-scented soft-centred chewy meringues with a crispy outer shell made for La Dolce Vita's In the Pink Breast Cancer Awareness event.
If you like, sandwich pairs of the meringue together with a little creme fraiche and decorate with dried rose petals.
