  • 4 egg whites
  • 225 g caster sugar
  • 300 ml whipping cream


  • Heat the oven to 200F, 100C, gas 1/4 and line two baking sheets with silicone paper.
  • Put the egg whites in a large bowl and whisk until they form soft peaks. Add the sugar, a teaspoonful at a time, whisking well after each addition, until all the sugar has been added.
  • Using two dessertspoons, spoon the meringue out onto the baking sheets, putting 12 meringues on each tray.
  • Bake in the oven for 3-4 hours until the meringues are firm and dry and will lift easily from the paper. The meringues should be pale off white.
  • Whisk the cream until it is thick and use it to sandwich the meringues together.
