- Baking trays
- Baking paper
- Mixing bowl
- Hand blender
- 3 egg whites at room temperature
- 175 g caster sugar
- 1 tsp white wine vinegar
- 1 tsp cornflour
- 150 g dark chocolate
- 450 ml double cream
- 2 tblsp icing sugar
- 350 g fresh strawberries
- Preheat your oven to 140° C (275°F) (Gas Mark 1)
- Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. On the baking paper, draw three rectangles measuring 10x25cm. Two rectangles can be placed on one baking tray.
- Mix the egg whites with a whisk until they reach the soft peak stage. Continue to mix the caster sugar until it becomes stiff and glossy.
- Now mix in the vinegar and cornflour. Continue to whisk for another couple of minutes. If the bowl is upside down, the mixture should hold its shape.
- Make an icing bag using a large star-nozzle and fill it with the meringue mixture. Pipe the lines using your template on the baking paper, until all three rectangles are completely filled.
- Bake for one hour in the oven. Turn off the heat and let the meringues cool in the oven. Once your meringues have cooled, melt the chocolate. Spread it on 2 meringue layers. Make sure to reach the edge. Allow to set in the refrigerator for approximately 10 minutes or until you need it.
- Just before serving, whip the double cream with some icing Sugar and chop your strawberries. Spread one piece of chocolate meringue onto a serving platter. Top it with one-third of the cream.
- Spread the second chocolate meringue over the top. Place the third meringue on top of the cream.
- Place the whole strawberries on top. Drizzle over any chocolate left.
