Recipe of Meringue
- Cool the eggs.
- Carefully separate the whites from the yolks. Just a little of yolk can make the beating harder.
- Pour the whites into a dry deep bowl and add a pinch of salt.
- Beat with a mixer at a medium speed until foamy.
- The foam should not be soft. It should hold stiff peaks when you lift the beaters up.
- Then gradually add sugar mixed with sugar powder. Add a little sugar and beat the mixture for 2-3 minutes. Repeat the process until you use all sugar.
- Then add a teaspoon of lemon juice and keep beating.
- When the foam forms stiff peaks, the mixture is ready for baking.
- Preheat oven well.
- Line baking sheet with a baking paper. Pipe the mixture onto the baking sheet with a pastry tube or a pastry bag using any tip you like. Use a spoon if you don’t have the pasty bag.
- Transfer the baking sheet to the oven and reduce the temperature to 210-250 F (100-120 C).
- Bake the meringues for about 1 hour with the oven door open. Technically, meringue is not baked but dried.
- When the meringues are dry enough, they are done.
