Easy Meringues with leftover egg whites

Easy Meringues with leftover egg whites

Finally I have found the right recipe for Meringues. I have tried different recipes, but always ended with bad results. Now the first thing that comes to my mind when I have leftover egg whites is the following recipe. My daughter loves meringues and every time I bake some, I always try to hide them from her (of course I don’t want her to eat all that sugar at once ☺).

: Easy


  • • 4 egg whites (room temperature)
  • • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • Step 1 Preheat the oven to 100°C
  • Step 2 Pour the egg whites in the mixing bowl and start mixing until soft peaks form (the egg whites should be at room temperature, this way they will whip better)
  • Step 3 Add the caster sugar and continue beating until stiff
  • Step 4 Sift the icing sugar and add to the egg whites. Carefully fold it with a spatula taking care not to over mix or the egg mixture will become runny
  • Step 5 Line a baking tray with parchment paper and using a tablespoon or a pastry bag shape the meringues leaving 2 to 3 cm space between them
  • Step 6 Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour and 20 minutes or so
  • Step 7 The meringues will be ready when they feel dry when touched
  • Step 8 Store in an airtight container
  • Step 9 Optional: For a better presentation you can add a few drops of food colour after Step 4
