I love meringue. I got to love meringue at a very late stage. Maybe because I feel meringue doesn’t play a very important role in the baking industry. But even though it was late love, this meringue topped off with berries and whipped cream is a fairy dream. Easy to prepare (can be prepared easily in advance), wonderful to look at and once you take the first bite, you will be in heaven, melts in your mouth and has a nice tangy aftertaste due to the berries. Really a fairy dream!
Don’t you hate pies that are mushy and have half of their goodness spilling onto your plate while it is being served? I don’t know about you, but I really don’t like that. If you have ever tried a squishy rhubarb pie, you know what I mean. But look no further, I found the perfect solution for this. In is really simple: instant vanilla pudding! If you chill this pie properly, you will have an amazing rhubarb filling (lots of it, almost one kilogram!), which combines nicely with the meringue. Is that a German thing? To put meringue on top of rhubarb? Not sure, but who cares. It is so yummy! You should definitely try it. I really love this nice combination. It looks so impressive and tastes even better.
Have you ever wondered what to do with leftover egg whites? Meringue is my new solution for leftover egg whites. Meringue is so versatile and it goes with almost everything because it has a rather subtle flavor. The best part of it is that you only need a litte sugar to create it.
Are you looking for a quick, yet impressive recipe for Easter? Try meringue. It is done in about 15 minutes and can be made many days in advance if kept in an airtight container. If you are not looking for an Easter recipe, you can dress the nests with strawberries and some cream cheese or whipping cream and have a light and delicious dessert.
