1. Preheat the oven to 100oC, gas mark 1/4. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.

2. Whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks then add the sugar 1 tbsp at a time. Spoon 12 mounds onto the 2 baking trays and bake for 3 hours, swapping the trays over half way through. Turn the oven off and leave meringues in the oven until cool.

Cook's Tip

For a quick version, use 250g shop bought meringues instead of making your own
