Meringue with strawberry and cream Meringue with strawberry and cream. Image courtesy: Vanitha women's magazine

A surprise element is always welcomed, especially when it's about food. Try out these cool meringue baskets for this V-Day.

Ingredients

2 egg whites

1 pinch salt

100 gm powdered sugar

50 gm fresh cream

Strawberries and mint leaves for garnishing

Preparation

Beat the eggs with an electric beater till soft and fluffy

When you remove the beater from the mix, the mix should be stiff, yet malleable. That is the consistency

First, add salt to the mix and beat again, after that, add the sugar and beat really well. The mix should stick to the bowl when it is upturned and not be runny

Pre heat the oven to 100°-110°C

Keep a baking sheet ready. Use the star nozzle on the piping bag and place the egg mixture into the bag. Make small balls onto the sheet and surround these with another layer of the mix. It should look like little cups

Bake these in the heated oven for about 1½ hours. These are the Meringue baskets. Once cooled, remove from the oven

Beat the cream well and keep aside

Right before serving, put the cream in the Meringue basket and garnish with strawberry slices and mint leaves

Notes

Putting in the cream earlier will make the baskets soggy.
