God save the Queen

My first post is from my recent trip to London, where I went with loved ones to find other loved ones. Small treat : the recipe for one of the delicacies at London's street markets. Let's start!


  • 400g large egg whites (approximately 10 large eggs)
  • 800g caster sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • red food color
  • 1t vanilla
  • 1t vinegar 
  • rose water(optional)

  • Preheat the oven to 110°C and line baking trays with 
    parchment paper.Place egg whites into the bowl of your 
    stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.Beat on medium 
    speed until foamy.Add the pinch of salt and increase speed 
    to medium-high. Slowly add sugar and vanilla.
    Then add the vinegar and beat until the egg whites become 
    thick and glossy, holding stiff peaks.
    Finally add the food color and the rose water and stir 
    gently with a spoon to get the marble effect. 
    Spoon large dollops of the meringue onto the baking tray.
    Bake at a low temp until they are have thick crust and are 
    light to pick up (approx 2hr for this size). Let them cool 
    in the oven with temp off and door open.
    Keep the meringues in an airtight container for up to three 
    Makes approximately 10 -12 giant meringues.
