26 Mar 16 (Sat) - Meringue

Was researching for recipes on pavlova and wanted to try it out during the weekend. However, I didn't want to buy whipped cream and fruits and then end up with a fail product eventually. So I modified a few of the pavlova recipes and omitted the cream and fruits.

The recipe was a very simple one and when the end product came out, I realized that I had made meringue instead.

Well... technically pavlova is a meringue-based dessert so by omitting the cream and fruits, I was essentially left with just the meringue.

Ingredients (make 8 2.5" meringue):
2 egg white
110g caster sugar
2g corn flour
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp red food coloring

1.  Draw 8 2.5" circles using a pencile on a baking sheet and lay it face down on a baking tray
2.  Preheat oven to 150 degree celsius
3.  Mix caster sugar with corn flour and vanilla with red food coloring and set them aside
4.  Beat egg white with electric mixer at low speed till foamy
5.  Add caster sugar/corn flour mixture in three batches and increase the speed of the electric mixer after each batch till it reaches maximum speed when all the mixture is added
6.  Add vanilla/red food coloring mixture
7.  Continue to beat the mixture till thick and glossy
8.  Spoon the mixture onto the circles on the baking sheet on the baking tray
9.  Bake for 25 mins and then leave to cool completely in the oven
10.  Store the meringue in an airtight container and they can keep for a week
