I made some yummy light fluffy vanilla meringues today.
Here is how I made them …
4 egg whites
1 cup caster sugar
1 vanilla bean
Beat the egg whites on high speed in an electric mixer until they are frothy
Add the caster sugar and continue to beat on high until stiff peaks form
Add the seeds from the centre of the vanilla bean
On a lined baking tray place evenly spaced out dollops of meringue mixture 
Bake in a fan forced oven on 90 deg C for an hour 
Allow to cool in the oven with the door ajar
Serve on a platter with some pretty patterned paper underneath.

  1. They look so good Leanne. I’ve managed to wrestle the computer from my children for longer than five minutes and I’ve just been catching up on all your news. Wow. So much has been happening. Congrats on making the Top 25 – can’t wait to see the showcase. Looking forward to seeing your new website too. Hope you’re over the flu and basking in this glorious Sydney weather. Think of you often. Hoping we can meet up again soon:) Meredy xo

  2. Mine, and my kiddos favourite! These looks wonderful. I might try my hand at making them for the easter weekend, and not cheat and buy them as usual !!!
