serves 4
3 egg whites

5 ml (1 tsp) vanilla flavouring
5 ml (1 tsp) vinegar

fresh strawberries, raspberries, kiwi fruit or canned passion fruit, drained to decorate

method

1. Draw a 23-cm (9-inch) circle on nonstick paper and place on a baking sheet.

2. Whisk the egg whites with the salt until very stiff, then gradually whisk in the sugar.
Beat until it forms stiff peaks again. Fold in the vanilla flavouring and vinegar.

3. Spread the meringue mixture over the circle and bake in the oven at 140°C (275°F) mark 1 for about 1 hour until firm.
