Metric Cups

  • zest of 1 orange
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar (sifted)
  • 2 peaches (sliced)

Method

Peach Meringues With Mascarpone is a community recipe submitted by Banana Pancakes and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Preheat the oven to 110C/225F.
  • Whisk the egg whites until stiff. Add 1 tbsp caster sugar, and continue whisking until thick and glossy. Fold in the remaining sugar, a little at a time, until all mixed.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment. Pipe approx 7cm rounds of meringues onto the parchment.
  • Cook for approx 2 hours, then turn the oven off, but leave the meringues in until they are cold.
  • The filling is made by mixing the mascarpone with the orange zest and icing sugar. I use this delightful mixture to sandwich the meringues together with a few slices of peach, perhaps spritzed with a little orange-flower water.
