Celebrating Christmas on the NSW Mid North Coast is a special experience. It gives us the sun, the sand, the beautiful water and that buzz that can only leave you with a taste of optimism about life!
Christmas is a time of love, happiness and relaxation. We also often find ourselves reflecting on the year that was. It’s a time to soak up our loved ones, friends and colleagues and appreciate each other and especially appreciate how magical the little people are in our life that we call our children.
So while you’re celebrating and enjoying the Summer, why not spoil your loved ones with a few sweet treats.
Have you ever envied over those little fluffy meringues and thought, “I can’t make meringues!” Myth busted! Try our foolproof meringue recipe today!
4 Egg Whites
220g Castor Sugar
2 Teaspoons Cornflour (sifted)
1 Teaspoom White Vinegar
Food Colouring and sprinkles (optional)
Preheat oven to 100º. Place egg whites in a large, clean, dry bowl. (Handy Hint: Using a glass or metal bowl is best). Use and electric beater to beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar beating well between each addition. If sugar doesn’t dissolve properly, the meringues may sweat in the oven. Continue beating for 2 minutes until trailing peaks form. Add the cornflour and vinegar until just combined.
Add your choice of food colouring and beat in.
Pipe or place balls of mixture onto baking trays leaving 5cm between each one.
Bake in oven for 2 – 2.5 hours. Turn off oven when done and leave in oven to cool.
