The meringue guy from the beach

The autumn is finally here in Sweden… Today, the meringue guy from the beach has honored Sugar and Spice Baking with his presence to remind us all about the summer of 2012. 😀


Let’s get started! 

Recipe (makes 8)

  • 1 dl egg white (3 egg whites)
  • 2 dl caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon Dr. Oetkers yellow food colouring
  • 2 grapes

Preheat the oven to 100 degrees C.

Simmer the egg whites and sugar in a water bath until most of the sugar has dissolved.

Pour it into a dry and clean bowl. Beat the meringue mixture thick, shiny and creamy. Flavour the mixture with the vanilla extract in the end.

The meringues are done when you can turn the bowl upside down without the mixture falling out.

Colour the mixture with Dr. Oetker’s yellow food colouring.

Pipe the meringue mixture onto the parchment paper on a baking sheet (I didn’t have any parchment paper at home so I used foil instead).

Bake in the middle of the oven for about 60-75 minutes or until they are done. The meringues are done when they come off the parchment paper.

Finally, decorated the meringue with two grapes (you can use tape so his eyes will not fall off).

 Happy Meringue Baking!  😀
