Basic meringue


3 large egg whites
1 cup or 200 grams caster sugar
1 pinch of salt

1. Heat the oven to 140°C.
2. Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.
3. Place the egg whites and a pinch of salt in the bowl of an electric mixer.
4. Whisk on a low speed for 1 minute, then increase the speed to medium and whisk for another 2-3 minutes, or until the egg whites form stiff peaks. If you lift the whisk attachment out of the bowl, the mixture should look fluffy and cling to them, while the peaks remain stiff and moist-looking. This will take longer if doing by hand or using a hand held mixer.
5. Then, while continuing to whisk, gradually add the sugar a tablespoon at a time, until the mixture is stiff and glossy – this may take 5-10 minutes.
6. Using a large, metal spoon, place freeform shapes on to the prepared baking trays.
7. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the meringues are pale and dry.
8. Turn off the oven and allow the meringues to cool in the oven with the door slightly ajar.
