Decided to make a meringue last night for the first time. So i came to Nigella's site for a recipe. I was extremely nervous about how it would end up butit turned out perfect, lovely and crisp on the outside and gloriously gooey on the inside. Will definitely use this recipe again. Thanks!! :-)
Tried this recipe for the first time and it went well :-) Were going to a friend's house tonight so we're making eton mess and I can make the meringues confidently.
I used to be the Queen of meringues, but then I moved house and only had electric oven and my meringues were a disaster. I have since moved to Spain and carried on trying, trying and trying loads of different recipes then came across yours and having purchased a new electric hand mixture so decided to try once again and 'voila' perfect meringues. THANK YOU Nigella. Not even eaten all the first batch and can't wait to make again
Is it possible to overwhip the whites &sugar mix? How high or low should they go in the oven? Mine are in cooking. Cross fingers they work out.
I've just put mine in the oven and this is the first time I have made them. I'm hoping it goes alright!
This is my go to meringue recipe and I have no idea why other folks could not be happy with it. I have had many failures in the past trying to make meringues with other recipes but not this one. I have just made 2 trays of little meringues for my mother who is gluten free, I will make another batch for my DIL who has a sweet tooth. Many thanks for a fool proof recipe.
I have just popped mine in the oven, they looked fantastic, just how I would expect them to. Here's to hoping they come out of the oven as pretty as they went in.
Dead easy and gorgeous meringues. I piped mine in shell shapes they look great! And lovely and gooey inside.
This is such an excellent meringue recipe. When I made it the meringues were so soft and gooey! Thanks! I will definitely be using this recipe again!!!
