Introduction

Here's the recipe from Australian food stylist Rachael Macchiesti. It says' She uses light brown sugar, in place of the more usual plain white sugar, b/c iys slight molasses flavour makes he meringue taste less sweet. You can very the fruit to your tastes, but passion fruit seems essential.'

  • Preheat the oven to 110 degrees Celsius. Lightly spray a baking sheet /w pan coating and line it smoothly /w aluminium foil. Spray the foil /w pan coating then dust it /w flour. Trace a 23cm circle onto the foil.
  • Using a clean, dry mixing bowl and beaters, start whipping the egg whites until foamy. Add the salt and continue to whip until the whites form small bubbles.
  • Mix together the sugar and cornflour and add to the whites in a slow, steady stream, beating constantly. Continue to whip until the egg whites are glossy and form stiff peaks.
  • Whip in the vinegar and vanilla. Scrape the mixture into the centre of the circle on the baking tray. Use a large spoon to spread the meringue to the perimeter of the circle, shaping it so the edge is about 4cm higher than the centre.
